Situated just off the National N2 road near Port Elizabeth, Addo Elephant National Park is probably the most accessible authentic Big 5 destination in the country, and together with its excellent variety of accommodation and its natural diversity, it should be visited by novice and experienced nature-lover alike.

From the north-west to the south-east, a distance of no more than 140kms, the habitats and landscapes change markedly, from near-desert conditions in the north to mountain fynbos, from sub-tropical valleys filled with dense spekboom to temperate coastal forest and warm Indian Ocean waters in the south. 

Within these five terrestrial and one marine biome live a profligate list of animal species, from the largest animal on earth (the elephant), the oldest mammal (the black rhino), one of the largest mammals (the southern-right whale) and Africa’s iconic predator (the lion).
