Addo Adventures and Things To Do.

The town of Addo, overshadowed by its famous neighbour The Addo Elephant National Park, is a tranquil little hamlet in the Sundays River Valley. Apart from serving the surrounding citrus farming community, Addo also provides excellent accommodation for visitors to the park. Addo is a springboard to many exciting adventures and activities eg. Big Swing, Boat Trips, Quad Biking, Zip Line and is less than an hour from Port Elizabeth.  With the serpentine Sundays River nearby, the rugged Zuurberg mountain range all around and a diverse wonderland of distinctive natural environments to play in, the region of Addo is worth visiting either as an adjunct to your Garden Route tour or as a destination in itself.

Addo is a biologically rich area and the chance of spotting game or bird life, whether intended or not, adds an exciting dimension to all outdoor activities. Chattering vervet monkeys are constant companions, while glimpses of bushbuck and bush pig are not uncommon. Of course, any trip to this area, will feature its biggest and most beloved drawcard, the African elephant, but there is so much more to be discovered here.
