Those are the game viewing area gate times.

I have a hunch the outer Addo gate closes at 22h00. :hmz:

When I stayed at Matyholweni in September 2012, the gate to the ourside world stayed open 24 hours. Perhaps you should phone the gate or Matyholweni reception to double check?

Hi
My understanding is that you can only enter the area where wildlife is after 7am, however the main camp is not in the wildlife area and therefore you can leave at anytime by arrangement with the security staff.
You will not be able to depart from the Colchester gate.
Hope this helps
Enjoy your stay it is a wonderful park

Hi
Your English is very good and much better than my Spanish.
Yes you can leave from Addo Rest Camp at any time.
It is only the Game viewing area that is closed.
On arrival ensure that you tell the reception of your plans. Also speak to the security staff so that they know as you will also have to hand your accommodation key in at the gate.
Hope this helps
Regards
JDW

Hi all.
I would like to know if it is possible to make a check in after the 10 PM.
I'm thinking to make a reservation of a Forest Cabin but our Flight arrives to PE at 12 noon and we must to go directly to a Prívate Reserve for a Game Drive wich ends at 9 PM.
We should arrive to Addo main Camp around 10 PM. It's possible to do the check in at that time?
Thank you

Hi JDW

I'm not sure. According the Website the Main entrance Gate close at 19.00. and also "Entrance gates are staffed by security guards after closing time. Visitors with accommodation bookings can still enter and exit the gate after closing times but before 22:00 provided they inform reception of this. After 22:00, there is no access into the Park as gates are closed" :cry:
The Distance between The Private Reserve and Addo is 45 min. The Game Drive ends around 21.00.
