Addo Elephant Park 13 September

This Wednesday was our day to go to Addo.
We drove from Port Elizabeth to the main gate and arrived there at about 10 am.

We started our trip seeing an elephant and soon after that some zebra.

This one held an eye on us.

The next animals we met where two blue cranes, a secretary bird and some warthogs.

Image

Image

We saw lots of kudu and a group of red hartebeest laying lazy in the grass.

Image

Image

There were lot of ostriches and dung beetles (and of course lots of dung)

Image



We also saw a group of eland, vervetmonkey, meerkat,black headed heron,cape grijsbok,leopard tortoise, hoepoe and last but not least buffalo.

Image

That was very special for us, because when we were in KNP 3 years ago whe only saw a buffalo kill near a group of lions,. but never a buffalo alive.
I must say that Addo is a beautiful camp with a variety of vegetation which makes it sometimes difficult to find something because of the thick bush, but at other spots it is very open and you can look very far.
Addo is a park you can’t see in one day but I am glad we visited this park and hope to come back once for a longer period.

Mark we saw the leftovers of a Kudu male in Addo next to the road but no cats. I think that had to be caused by lion but I am not sure.

I'm glad you all liked the report. Our visit was only for one day but is a beautiful camp, so green and so different from Kruger. And because there are so few reports from Addo I thought I give it a bit attention. It was the first time I used my birthday gift the Canon 350 and I'm glad you like the pics.
Mark I think you will have a great time over there.
Agnes.
