Addo Elephant National Park was proclaimed in 1931 to provide a safe haven for the few wild elephants who survived the early 20th century. Today the elephants number in their hundreds, thanks to the efforts of the National Parks Board and a unique vegetation type - subtropical thicket, or valley bushveld. It is this thick, impenetrable vegetation that has not only provided protection for the elephants and buffalo in the area, but also provided a rich food source, supporting what is now the most dense population of wild elephants on the planet. Our tour concentrates on finding and viewing elephants. Buffalo, Rhino and Lion sightings are a definite bonus, while you may also be lucky enough to see dung beetles keeping the park tidy!
