The word Addo immediately reminds one of the Addo Elephant National Park near Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. Addo, however, has much more to offer. Addo accommodation is plentiful and ranges from a hotel to luxurious guest houses, lodges, B&B accommodation to backpackers.
Addo Elephant National Park has an elephant population in excess of 400. Lions have recently been brought in from the Kgaligadi Transfrontier Park and now for the first time since 1879 the 'Big Five' can be seen at the park.
Apart from the Addo Elephant the area is an agricultural centre where citrus is intensively farmed.
A trip to Addo is also not complete without a visit to Addo Croc and Lion Ranch where the visitor can come face to face with crocodiles, lions, tigers as well as with other species of wild animals. Here you can also find chalets, a restaurant and tea garden in lush, shady surroundings.
The climate and soil are also ideally suited to farming with roses and the annual Addo Rose & Garden Show held in Addo during October is well worth visiting.
Game farms abound in the area and Addo's neighbouring town, Kirkwood, hosts the well known annual "Wildsfees". (Game Festival) in June.
Addo accommodation offers upmarket to luxurious options ranging from hotels, to guest houses to other guest accommodation from which Addo and the area can be explored. To see some select Addo accommodation, please visit the Where to Stay page.
One of these, Africanos Inn is a well known hotel venue for large country style functions and weddings.

It also offers the best meals in the Sundays River Valley at its grill.
