If anyone is ever looking for a memorable wildlife experience without visiting South Africa's 'big' game park of the Kruger National Park, then we can highly recommend Addo Elephant Park, in the couth of the country (near Port Elizabeth).

It does have elephants, as you would expect (a LOT of elephants!), but the extensive park (the third largest in South Africa) boasts just about everything else, from warthogs to rhinos, and kudu (LOTS of kudu) to lions.

We will have a lot more to say about it in due course, but suffice it to say, with its unique coastal aspect as well as the interior elephant savannah, Addo is a truly amazing experience and is well worth putting on anyone's travel bucket list.
