Guide

Trip Info

Early pick up at place of residence in Port Elizabeth and depart for Addo Elephant National Park with its population of over 600 African Elephants, herds of Buffalo, Lions and Leopard among the many species of antelope, Zebra and Warthog as well as the rich and diverse bird and reptile life that inhabit this expanded National Park, one of the most popular in South Africa.

After entering we check in and immediately start our game viewing experience searching for the many and diverse creatures in the thickets and on the open plains while learning about the habitat in which they live.

Reaching main camp we stop for a brief comfort break before departing for the nearby Zuurberg mountain range north of the park where we climb the historic Zuurberg mountain pass with its spectacular views over the lowlands below.

We enjoy a light lunch on the expansive verandah at the historic Zuurberg Inn.

After lunch we depart and descend into the valley to meet the three large but gentle Elephant bulls we will ride for a once in a life time experience through the thickets, viewing the other species on the reserve from the backs of these incredible creatures.

After riding these gentle giants there is a chance to interact while you feed the bulls, after which they get a chance to swim and mud bath at the waterhole.

Return to Port Elizabeth and your accommodation after a full day of excitement.
