Great selfdrive Game Park with lots of elefants. Some other animals too, but we where twice lucky to see the elefants taking a bath at a water hole. Accommodation is very difficult to get, and have to be booked well in advance.

First time in Addo and saw a lot of game. The sand roads are not well maintained and the signage a bit confusing. Accommodation very good. Worth the visit if you are traveling in the area.

We stayed for two nights at Base Camp. The spacious plots are given out at a first come-first serve basis - as in Bontebok Park - but when having a reservation this is no problem. We arrived with 3 RVs and one SUV with roof...More
