    Addo Elephant Park I

    January 5 in South Africa

    Even though my camera kept refusing to work during today's Safari through Addo Elephant Park on South Africa's Eastern Cape, I still have definitely too many pictures of too many different animals, so there are going to be more than one every for today.

    Addo Elephant Park

    April 2, 2017 in South Africa

    Efter en god morgenmad på vores hotel tog vi afsted fra East London med retning mod Port Elizabeth. Kort før Port Elizabeth havde vi planlagt at besøge Addo Elephant National Park. Addo er en af de officielle sydafrikanske nationalparker, og i lige præcis denne skulle de have over 550 elefanter. Vi så selvfølgelig ikke dem alle sammen, men vi så rigtig mange, og vi kom helt tæt på dem og på mange af de andre dyr - igen en helt fantastisk oplevelse. Vi valgte at køre selv i Addo Elephant Park i stedet for at tage på en guidet tur. Udover de mange elefanter, så vi også vortesvin, kuduer, springbukke, impalaer, strudse, skildpadder, zebraer og bøfler samt nogle mega store biller (kuduer og impalaer er en slags antiloper). Alt i alt en super oplevelse.
    Efter Addo kørte vi ned til Port Elizabeth og fandt Mangolds Guesthouse, som vi havde reserveret for de næste to nætter. Aftenen gik med ren afslapning efter et par travle dage.
    Dagen får 4 skønne stjerner.
    Road trip: 387 km på dagen - 3.166 km i alt.

    Addo Elephant National Park

    August 7, 2012 in South Africa

    We woke at 5.40am, freezing, to find that the electricity was still out. That meant packing in complete darkness. Rain was falling heavily outside. After breakfast we said goodbye (with little regret) to the Wildcoast, and set off towards Addo Elephant National Park.
    Lunch was at Georgetown, a pretty city built in 1820. It displayed a combination of Dutch and English architecture as well as a few very nice cathedrals. We took some time to walk around the city, exploring a cathedral and noting a loud protest going on at the Town Hall.

    We arrived at Addo around 2pm, our accomodation here being small forest cabins located in the Main Camp. The camp was a fenced off area, from the surrounding game park, nearby to a reception, shop, bar and restaurant. There were also viewing areas on the camp perimeter, with a hyde near a drinking hole. We attempted an afternoon game drive, but with the rain well and truly persistent and steady, there were few animals active. For a place renowned for its elephant sightings, we managed just the one. We did manage to see some Jackal, Zebra, and a massive herd of Buffalo.

    Dinner at camp was lamb and vegetables. From there, Nat and I headed to the bar for some rest, enjoying some red and white wine, a chocolate mousse for dessert and some Olympic Viewing. We took one final attempt to spot animals at the waterhole hyde around 9pm, but with the rain still falling, there was nothing about. We put up our umbrella and made the trek back to our cabin to sleep.
