          Addo Elephant National Park
          Stop: 9 hours - Admission included
          Our experienced and enthusiastic Guide will do his best to locate as much of the game available in the area during your drive and interpret their behaviour. The first few hours are usually good to see antelope, zebra and lion. As this Safari covers all time periods of the day you should have the opportunity to see most game species. We will stop for a Tea/Coffee break at around 10h30. We continue and usually have good sightings of elephant and buffalo nearer the waterholes. At lunch time when we serve a delicious South African “braai” with juice, mineral water, beer and white wine. After lunch we continue with the safari. We will leave the park at 18h00 and return to your place of accommodation. Refreshments will be served throughout the drive.

          Amazing half day tour with Allan!
          Our half day tour with our guide Allan was truely amazing! Allan had great knowledge about the park and all the animals. He picked us up at our apartment at 08:20 am (really punctually) with his nice Safari vehicle. Already within the first half hour of our tour, we saw kudos, zebras, elefants and 4 lions. While the guides in the other cars did not spot the lions, Allan recognized them in the bush at first sight. During the entire tour, Allan provided us interesting information about the animals and knew the right spots to go to. When we told him the need to search for a restroom, he immediately brought us to the bathroom area within the park. At 11:30 we had a nice picnic with freshly baked bread in the picnic area. We spent some time at the water holes where elephants passed approx 50cm in front of our car and we took many nice pictures. We left the park at 13:15 and had a wonderful stay! Allan even organized with the park crew that we could reuse our ticket to re-enter the park with our own vehicle in the afternoon. We would definitely book this trip once again and highly recommend it! Greetings to Allan, thanks again for this nice experience!

          Excellent up close encounters with elephants, as well as multiple sightings of other animals at the numerous waterholes.
          It was amazing to see so many elephants congregated at the waterholes, as well as small groups travelling along the road/track. To experience an elephant gaze into your soul from only a metre away was unforgettable. So many other animal encounters on the day - monkeys, baboons, tortoises, wide array of antelope, zebras and bird life. Lots of Pumba the warthog! No lions today, but three additional lions were to be released the next day. An unforgettable day, I fully recommend this tour with a very informative tour guide.

          Address Game Drives is really good
          Our first visit to the South African bush at Addo Elephant National Park was a wonderful excursion from our cruise ship call in Port Elizabeth. Steve was a very good guide and we saw many of the Big Five. However, the elephants were the stars of the day. Addo Game Drives also provided a terrific traditional South African BBQ lunch . We highly recommend this tour.

          Wonderful Safari to Addo Elephant park
          Edson Mashawa was our fabulous driver and guide. We were picked up from the cruise ship terminal when there were 3 ships at Port Elizabeth. Our vehicle had 4 couples in it. It took about 45mins to get to the park, using mainly dual carriageways. It was a very hot day, but we were able to open the windows, which was also better for photographs. We were certainly thrilled with the many elephants we saw, as well as zebra, warthogs, red hartebeest, kudu and eland. Eddie gave us a coffee break as well as taking us into Jack's Picnic Site (with Jurassic Park style entrance gates!) for a wonderful Braai lunch. Eddie is a very knowledgeable guide and clearly loves his job. We had a great day, thank you. We got back to the ship: tired, hot and dusty, but soon recovered and we have memories that will last a lifetime.

          Elephants galore! Excellent tour guide! And good times!
          The trip was amazing! Our tour guide Stephan was spectacular, had a wealth of knowledge and was very accommodating. We must have seen about 150 elephants or more! The picnic was fantastic thanks to Stephan. A very nice treat indeed. Finally I would recommend this trip to anyone who is looking for a 5 hour safari trip if you are in and around the Eastern Cape area.

          Well organized and wonderful guides
          We did the full day Addo drive which started with us being collected from our hotel and driven to the park with 3 other tourists. Langton, our driver and guide, was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and gave us information on the park and the various animals. The highlight was spending time at a water hole that had many elephants bathing and preparing for a warm day by wallowing in the mud. A huge lunch (South African BBQ or braai) was included which I couldn't finish. My wife, a vegetarian, was well catered for. Communication with Clint was very good where plans and times were arranged. All in all, a great experience that I'd recommend.

          Amazing experience!!
          This tour was truly amazing! Altough it was a quite rainy day, we had a blast at the 5 h morning safari! We are beyond happy to have had Siya as our guide! She is such a nice person and has so much knowledge - incredible! We felt very comfortable with her and we saw so so many amazing animals, which we are very grateful for! Also the communication with Clint was really friendly and easy! Thank you again!

          WoW!!! Totally worth it.
          Fantastic experience. All the way from the initial communications with Clint. Our guide Steven was amazing. From the pickup at our hotel to the unbelievable amount of knowledge and insight he gave us throughout the Safari. The picnic was amazing. I thought we’d get sandwiches in bags but no. Fully laid out table with place setting for each of us. Really well worth it and HIGHLY recommended.

          Amazing Experience
          We had an absolutely wonderful experience. We had great support from Clint getting the 1/2 day game drive set up. We flew in from Cape Town that day, and Clint and our guide Sia picked us up at the airport. She was so knowledgeable about the park, and stopped frequently to point things out. We saw so many animals and over 100 elephants. A member of our group had food allergies and they were able to accommodate for our picnic. Cannot recommend this enough!!

          Great day in Addo
          On time Pickup in Summerstrand at our guesthouse. Great communication prior to booking with the owner Clinton. We had a fantastic day and saw nearly all kinds of animals. Even giraffes outside the park during pickup of another couple. Steve is a great guide, answered all our questions with his great wisdom. And not enough… he is a great cook and braai Chef. We can recommend the day tour to everybody

          A great safari team.
          What an absolute fantastic experience,from a family run business. From when we collected at the port,and transferred to the ideal Safari jeeps, great views and ventilation all round,and our guide Steve was so knowledgeable on all the animals that we spotted, through out the whole day. Stopping for refreshments and when we pulled into the stunning picnic area, where Taren had prepared a stunning South African BRAAI (bbq) ,with lots to eat and choose from and lots to drink as well . We also purchased some bits from the Toy Project , which Taren supports to help underprivileged ladies. And off again scouring the huge National Park for more animals to see. I must say from collection to drop off we had an absolute stunning day with Clint and Taren and the Team. Very Professional outfit, and we had a fantastic day , we highly recommend if you are in the Port Elizabeth area, and when we do return to South Africa from England we will definitely be booking again.

          Book this tour!!
          What an amazing experience! As cruise passengers we had a much better time in our smaller group that Clint organized so well compared to what the tour groups from the cruise ship experienced. Do not book with the cruise ship, book with Clint and Addo Safaris! Our guide for the day was Langston and he was superb, from spotting animals, to giving us history of the National park, to how to identify animals and how old they are, he was so down to earth and friendly. Clint and his wife cooked an amazing lunch for us in the park. Overall I would highly recommend this tour!

        We had an amazing experience with our guide Stephen. The full day was arranged for us, and we only had to look out for the most amazing animals. Stephen drove us to the best places, which ensured us to see have the best views. We even saw two lions very close to the car! The braai also was amazing, it was very varied and more than enough. Thanks again Stephen for this wonderful day!

        We booked a private full day tour of Addo Elephant Park.

        Mustaph our driver and guide picked us up from the cruise ship dock.
        His knowledge of the animals and his ability to find them was outstanding.

        We stopped for lunch at a wonderful restaurant right in the middle of the park. The Kudu stew was amazing!

        It was definitely worth paying the extra for the private tour, as there appeared to be lots of people on the larger trucks that we saw.

        We booked direct with Addo as the cruise ship options were much more expensive.

        What an amazing experience. We had already done a safari in Pilanesberg which was excellent so were a bit worried it would just be the same but it was very different. So cool to see large groups at the watering holes and we even saw a buffalo, elephants and a hyena all interacting together. Eddie was a great guide and we loved our braai where we got to mix with other groups, they even catered for our coeliac member of the group!

        We travelled as a family.

        Although we did not see many animals because of the day's wheather, it was an amazing tour.

        The sightings were beautiful and we were privilleged to see a baby and mama elephant close by our car, as well as a group of zebras.

        Our guide (Steven) was very comunicative, knowleagable of the wildlife and kind.

        The braai was very delicious and well served! We were very pleased!

        It is a very special tour! We recompend it highly!

        I had a middle seat in the safari car, squeezed between two other people and basically had no access to any window to take good shots. Feel unnecessary to fly 14.000 km and pay sufficient sum for safari for this. Very upset. The guide was ok, the braii was good.

        We had a really good experience with Addo Game Drives. We got picked up from our accommodation although it was a bit out of Port Elizabeth. From that point our safari adventure got better and better. Our guide was very friendly and had a lot to tell about the wildlife and animals in the National Park. The BBQ was really tasty.

        I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone who is interested in the nature and wildlife in South Africa.

        Thank you Addo Game Drives. We had a blast on your tour!
