More info about Addo
The tiny town of Addo is the gateway to the renowned Addo Elephant National Park in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. The town was first established as a railway junction in the 1930s and the area is today a major citrus producer. The origin of the town’s name is unclear. Aside from offering accommodation for visitors to the adjoining park, Addo has also become an adventure centre. The gorgeous Sundays River Valley nearby is the perfect setting for water- and acrophobic-related escapades.
Addo is an hour’s drive from Port Elizabeth, the region’s largest town inclusive of an international airport. There are several Big 5 reserves along the route.
Eastern Cape weather is temperate, the regional road to Addo is fairly well maintained and scenic, and visitors can expect a pleasant stay in Addo.
