Elephant House Addo Elephant Park


"Rathambore for tigers, The Varungas for mountain gorillas and ADDO FOR ELEPHANTS!"

Indeed, Addo is famed for some of the finest elephant viewing on the planet! Elephant House is situated just 8km from the main entrance to Addo Elephant National Park where one can self-drive or go on a guided safari with The Elephant House Safari Co. which operates excellent daily game drives into Addo on an open Land Cruiser.

The Addo Elephant National Park is one of the world's great conservation success stories and embraces one of the highest concentrations of big game in Africa. In addition to the famous elephants of Addo the park also has lion, black rhino, buffalo, hyena, jackal and a variety of antelope whilst over 165 species of birds have been recorded as well as the flightless dung beetle which is almost endemic to Addo.

The prominent vegetation in the area is a subtropical thicket commonly known as "Valley Bushveld" this is a biome unique to the river valleys of the Eastern Cape where the plants are tough and drought resistant (the average annual rainfall is only 385mm).
