As well as being a malaria-free province, the Eastern Cape is one of the most captivating regions of South Africa owing to its deep-rooted cultural traditions, the colour of its vegetation, its wildlife and the contrast of its landscapes: sea, mountain and savannah bush veldt.
The magnificent Eastern Cape environmental conditions have fostered the creation of some of the most important reserves and natural parks of South Africa, offering a unique setting to Addo Palace as its limits border the famous reserve of the Addo Elephant National Park that houses one of the largest populations of elephants on the continent, as well as antelope and big cats.
Addo Elephant National Park is the third largest reserve in South Africa and the only one in the world which is home to the "big seven": elephant, lion, leopard, rhinoceros, buffalo, whale and white shark, the last two being found in maritime zones located close to the area.
