          Addo Elephant National Park - Home to the 'Big 5' and one of the densest Elephant populations in Africa. Addo offers unrivaled biodiversity and a magnificent game viewing experience in a Malaria free environment. Spend a full day exploring the 3rd largest National Park in South Africa with our expert guides! The original elephant section of the park was proclaimed in 1931, when only eleven elephants remained in the area. Today this finely-tuned ecosystem is home to one of the densest elephant populations on earth, with over 700 elephant, lion, buffalo, the endangered black rhino, spotted hyena, leopard, a variety of antelope and zebra species, as well as the unique Addo flightless dung beetle, found almost exclusively in Addo. The park can exclusively claim to be the only national park in the world to conserve the “Big 7” – the Big 5 as well as the southern right whale and great white shark off the Algoa Bay coast.

          The best of everything in 5 days 😊
          Did the 5 days Garden Route tour from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town including Addo Elephant park. The communication was easy, extremely friendly and highly responsive. There where supposed to be 4 people on the tour but the 3 others canceled so it was only me. I highly appreciate that they still did the tour with only me participating. Sidwell was my guide and he did an amazing job. I enjoyed every minute of the tour and had a great time. Also worth mentioning all the accommodations, which where all really really nice and I would stay in each of them again. I wish I could have stayed longer in most of the stops but I had only so much time. Thanks to Afroventures I feel I made the most of my time though. 5 thumbs up and 5 starts. Will recommend them to my friends 😊

          South African Safari - Choose this one!
          What a wonderful way to spend three days in South Africa. The amazing and personable Sidwell was our primary guide for an extended 3-day safari journey that took us from the Addo Elephant Park to the Bellevue Giraffe Walk and finished up at the Zebra National Park. Our guide Sidwell was knowledgable and helped make us all comfortable during our three-day trek. Bradley at Bellevue was equally able to impart his knowledge and understanding to us while walking within yards of giraffes. And Andrew the Cheetah Tracker at the Zebra Park was phenomenal. Accommodations were first-rate, as was the food and narration at each of the venues. Leigh, the tour organizer, was capable, responsive and flexible, as he was able to satisfy our multi-generational group, ranging in age from 8 to 77.

          Best Trip Ever!
          Our 4-day South African safari with guide John was an unforgettable experience. Day 1 at Addo Elephant Park showcased diverse wildlife, from lions to zebras. Day 2's Zebra National Park revealed hidden beauty and a thrilling cheetah walk. The valley of desolation on Day 3, followed by a night in Karoo, added a unique touch. Exploring the owl house and fossil tour on Day 4 was a delight. Fantastic views, superb food, and top-notch accommodation enhanced the journey, but John's expertise made it truly exceptional. Highly recommend this adventure and Afro Tours as THE place to book your tour! Best Regards, Clement and Chantal

          Afroventures transported my Bachelorette party around Gqeberha and Addo. We were able to let our hair down while enjoying all the sites and beauty of our city. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made sure we were safe and sound. Thank you, Afroventures, for an unforgettable experience!

          Kudos to whoever came up with the idea of booking Afroventures to escort us to the most amazing spots around Gqeberha and Addo for our bachelorette party. We literally let our hair down and enjoyed the rides! Our guide was both knowledgeable and entertaining with fascinating stories of the local traditions. I'm thinking up my next 'reason' to go afroventuring again.

          John is an excellent guide who knows his way around and made us feel safe during our entire trip. I would definitely book with afroventures again. Thank you for the amazing trip. John can tell a lot about the history of South Africa and Port Elizabeth specifically. He really got my attention with his stories

          Very good service and everything was taken care of! Would definitely do it again if I get the chance. The people were very friendly and they made sure we had everything we wanted! Also felt very safe in Africa because of the good service.

          Amazing experience
          I had the best time in South Africa together with our lovely group leader John, who made our experience even better. I did a two week trip from Port Elizabeth to Johannesburg and saw the best highlights of South Africa. Everything was well organised and the places where we stayed were really nice. We could really laugh with John and he made sure everyone was okay. Would definitely recommend this organisation !

          Great tour - can only recommend
          We really enjoyed the walking tour with John. He was a great guide, provided a lot of insights and explanations and showed us some very nice places in paw central. A place not everyone would go to, but a place everyone should go to in our opinion - it’s perfectly safe. Everything is super well organised and the communication with Afroventures is super quick and easy. We can only recommend Afroventures, the tour and John as a guide😊

          Brilliant Safari experience
          We had a fantastic experience in Addo National Park. Our guide John was exceptional - knowledgable, passionate and hilarious, he made the experience. We saw loads of animals (Elephants, zebras, buffalo, cudu, baboon, hyena, a rhino and luckily a lion!). The accommodation was a delightful cottage just outside the National park and the Sunday river cruise was a great addition. Brilliant experience start to finish would highly recommend!

          Experience of a lifetime
          I really enjoyed the whole experience. The guide knew a lot, so I did learn much about South-Africa and the diffent cultures they have. The program was filled with activities and traveling through the country. There was a good balance between activities, traveling and moments to relax. It was an experience of a lifetime!

        I did the full day tour with afroventures to Addo Elephant National Park. The tour started from my hostel which was a plus and our guide (king) Elvis was delightful. On route to the park we were told informed about some of the history of PE and in the park Elvis proved a knowledgeable and very funny guide with a keen eye for spotting wildlife. The car we were in was comfortable and had big windows that opened wide for convenient photo taking opportunities. The provided lunch was plentiful and delicious. We saw many elephants, buffaloes, zebras, kudus, red hartebeests and many more. Sadly no feline animals for us but we absolutely got our moneys worth and have a splendid day to look back. Would fully recommend this tour and try to get Elvis as your guide because he will make sure you have a great time.

        Elvis is a high spirited guide who seems to have a lot of knowledge about Addo and its animals and where they use to gather at each time of the day. Thanks to his experienced, trained eyes and network with other guides we could see not only many elephants and zebras (that seem easy to spot all around the park), but also a lion and two lionesses, besides many other animals. I guess it's always a matter of luck as well, yet he did know where to stop, watch and search. The "light" lunch (which happened to be a lot, and far from my definition of light, with a variety of meat freshly grilled) was also delicious and included beer, wine, fruits, salad and garlic bread, which didn't leave vegetarians hungry either. As a vegetarian, though, I'd recommend informing this to the agency the moment you book your tour. Reliable and knowledgeable, I had a great day and would recommend this guy.

        I want to share my experience on the addo elephant national park tour I went on with the Afroventures company.

        We spend a full day in the park exploring the beauty
        Of addo .we spotted lot of animals it was fantastic to know about the stories of all the animals. From the smallest animal upto the biggest. And the history of addo national park is so amazing, I must say our guide (John mothiba ) was so knowledgeable and he is spot on with the animals it was good to listen when he is explaining. This was one of the best tours I been on i can recommend it to anyone.

        We did the full day tour with Afroventures to Addo Elephant National Park leaving from our Cruise ship. Our guide (king) Elvis was great. On route to the park we were informed about the day ahead and what we might see. He proved knowledgeable about the park and animals and very funny. The vehicle we were in was comfortable and had big windows that opened wide for convenient photo taking.
        Sadly the weather was foul, with rain all day which meant the animal were under cover and although we saw other animals we saw very few elephants.
        The tour was well organised, we were picked up and dropped off at the port on time. Elvis was a great guide and he was as dissapointed as we all were in the vehicle that we saw so few animals.

        Dear Keith Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us. The main game viewing area of the Addo Elephant National Park is vast and with the unfortunate weather and the natural movement of wild animals it is not always possible to find them all in a day. We hope you visit us again soon to experience all the elephants on a much better weather day. The Afroventures team

        I took the Addo Elephant National Park Inclusive Full-day safari; the tour guide was John. It was the best safari I have ever had; he was knowledgeable about the animals and plants, including the vegetation, and knew a lot about the park's history. I would recommend it to everyone who would like to enjoy a relaxed safari with a well-informed guide who knows the places and areas where to find the best spots.

        My GF and I had an amazing day, John is an incredible nice tourguide, he knew the best places to spot the animals and we had the opportunity to take a lot of nice pictures. The tourguide also provided us with a very nice lunch. We heard that there were people that went to the park by themselves and didn’t even see elephants, well that won’t happen if you book this tour! We saw hundreds, and John could tell us interesting facts about all the other animals we saw. Recommend!!

        Our tour guide Sidwell was very experienced in spotting wildlife and worked very hard to ensure that we saw all that the park has to offer. We came close up to buffalos, elephants, zebras, lions and many other animals. He stopped the car whenever we wanted and always placed it at the right angle so we could take perfect pictures. Whenever we saw an animal, he knew interesting information about this species and some fun facts as well. We had an amazing day in Addo Elephant park with lots of fun. I can highly recommend Afroventures Tours & Safaris!

        Our guide, Sidwell, worked hard to ensure that we saw all that the park has to offer. We got up close to lions, elephants, ostriches, zebras, monkeys and too many more to list. When photo angles were tough he would move the vehicle to accommodate and even take some shots for us. While leaving the park as the sun was setting a huge bull elephant walked up the road right at us to cap off a great experience.

        A perfect day from start to finish. Collected from accomodation by your guide in an enclosed, sturdy and comfortable vehicle so the blaring sun and chilly wind doesn’t affect you. A full day of incredible animal experiences. Our guide, Sidwell, was so knowledgeable about the park and the animals and made every effort to find the animals to make our day incredible, keeping in touch with the other guides about where animals had been sighted. A delicious fresh packed lunch was provided at a picnic area. I can’t fault this tour and highly recommend it to anyone.
