You can drive yourself in the Park, but a game drive will insure you see a lot more animals and you can focus on seeing animals and not watching the road. We were pleased to see so many elephants, even babies, and so many other...More

The ark is amazing, so many animals to view. Highlight was seeing the vast amounts of elephants in the park, visitor centre is definitely worth a visit as this tells you the origin of the park as well as some fun facts. Lovely picnic areas...More

Addo Elephant National Park offers lots of opportunities to spot elephants, zebra and other animals from your own car. The park is beautiful and the entrance fee is acceptable although it can get a bit crowded.

With the huge African sky overhead, the Addo National Park was quite wonderful. Going on a jeep tour from the main lodge was well worth the extra rand. Not only did the guides share valuable information, they also took us along tracks not accessible to...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.
