Getting Around Addo Elephant National Park

The gate to the park is open from 7am to 7pm throughout the year. Activities permitted are game viewing from your own vehicle; bird watching from designated areas in rest camps, guided night drives and illuminated waterholes to observe nocturnal animals. Within the park are two walking trails, down which walking safaris are conducted by experienced guides. In addition, there are horse trails, and there’s usually a waterhole close to whichever camp you’re staying at; invariably, you’ll be able to see some wildlife by just sitting on the verandah and keeping a sharp lookout.

The gate hours of Zuurberg Nature Reserve are 7:30am to 4:30pm throughout the year.
