The word Addo immediately reminds one of the Addo Elephant National Park near Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. The Addo, area, however, has much more to offer. Addo accommodation is plentiful and ranges from hotels to luxurious guest houses, lodges, B&B accommodation and even backpackers.
Addo Elephant National Park has an elephant population in excess of 400. Lions have been brought in from the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park and now for the first time since 1879 the 'Big Five' can be seen at the park.
Apart from the Addo Elephant National Park, the Addo Area is an agricultural centre where citrus is intensively farmed.
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.
Private Game Reserves abound in the area and Addo's neighbouring town, Kirkwood, hosts the well known annual "Wildsfees". (Game Festival) in June.
Addo accommodation is offered in various options ranging from upmarket luxurious lodges to guest houses and self catering guest accommodation. These are ideal to explore the Addo Area in general and the Addo Elephant Park.
