It is so amazing to see the animals in their natural surroundings. This is one of the smaller reserves (in comparison to Kreuger etc) but it's still a huge place. it took us 2 days to drive most of it but we saw so much....More

Amazing, absolutely amazing. Started at the south gate near Colchester and meandered through the park to the Main gate. Huge amount of wildlife with the culmination being a herd of elephants sauntering across the road directly in front of car. Brilliant

We loved visiting Addo. So many animals and they made us smile for days afterwards. We were lucky that the weather was hot and dry so that the elephants had to come out of the forest to the waterholes. One morning there were just 3...More

Seeing so many elephants together on an en route trip to the Eastern Cape was very eye opening. One cannot think that an elephant safari is so accessable right on your doorstep. The park is in excellent condition and serve as a care-free feeding, mating...More

The knysna Elephant park is really for kids where you can get up close to the elephants and feed them, Addo is huge and has a far greater range of animals but they are wild so you can't get near them like you can at Knysna.

4 is fine. I went with my 2 year old. You are in your car most of the time, unless you are at a picnic spot. They do not allow kids under 12 on the game drives.
