The Addo Elephant Game Park is in the Eastern Cape, on the South Coast of South Africa. It's closest city is Port Elizabeth, which is 72kms away.

We came here on honeymoon and absolutely loved it!!!!

We stayed in a thatch-roofed Dutch-colonial styled bungalow, were the last in a row, so we had extra privacy, which was wonderful. We were so close to the animals (fenced off).

It sleeps four, so with just the two of us, it was so spacious!

It has a bathroom (where I made my husband a lovely petal bath), and an open plan living are and kitchen, which led onto the veranda.

Everything was very comfortable, clean and inviting. It was serviced daily with fresh bedding and towels.

They do have a campground area where you can stay too, as well as rondavels which cater for different amounts of people..
