Addo


The colossal elephants and dunes of the Addo region


The Eastern Cape’s Addo region is nearly synonymous with the Addo Elephant National Park, home to the Big 7 and one of the highest densities of elephants on the planet. Yet, most of the region, which extends all the way from the Zuurberg Mountains to the mouth of the Sundays River, lies untouched. Visitors are sure to be enthralled by this incredibly diverse Karoo landscape of succulents and shrubs, rolling plains, and subtropical forest brimming with a wild variety of fauna.

One of these undiscovered places include the colossal, white dunes of the Alexandria dune fields, the largest and best-preserved coastal dune field in the southern hemisphere. Some of the undulating dunes even reach the heights of those in the Namib Desert. Walk through a sea of orange trees in the Sundays River Valley - one of South Africa’s major citrus producers. Enjoy guided hikes, horseback riding, and traditional safaris among the Addo Elephant National Park’s gentle giants.

The small and picturesque towns in the area are charming places to experience small-town life and serve as ideal bases for exploring the surrounding area. On top of all this, the Addo region’s proximity to the town of Port Elizabeth allows for easy access to all major points of interest.
