Addo Elephant Park

Star Attraction

Addo National Park offers the highest density of elephant in the world, with more annual visitors than East Africa’s Serengeti National Park. From its convenient location on the border of the park, Camp Figtree operates daily guided tours, at 08:30 and 14:00, using open Land Rovers to provide guests with some of the finest elephant viewing in the world. The introduction of lion into the park has added a great deal of excitement and elevated Addo National Park to Big 5 status. The trip generally takes 4 hours and is charged separately. Rate is R1290pp including park entrance fee and light snacks. Please note children under the age of 4 are not permitted on our game drives.  Babysitting service is available upon request.
