    I enjoyed revisiting Addo through your pictures and tips. I understand your mom's feelings when she just wanted you to drive when surrounded by elephants. I felt the same way.

    Excellent photos and tips on the Elephants of Addo!! I would love to get back to a game park again! Oh yes, those earthen roads get very slippery when wet! I remember driving on them in Zambia - just like on ice in Canada!!

    This would be an amazing park to get too. Amazing animals, to bad about the oranges though, that is a sin. Cheers :-)
