We (a couple of Australians) are picking up a hire car from Port Elizabeth Airport and will be heading straight to Addo Rest Camp (next weekend! Yippee!!!). We would like to stop enroute to collect some food supplies. Can somebody suggest a good place to stop, preferably not in PE if possible? Also, is there much variety available in the park in terms of purchasing supplies for self catering? Many, many thanks! Jules

Although this reply is a bit late for you jules, if anyone else is looking for the same information, there is a shop in Addo rest camp which sells some basic supplies. There is also a shop called Lenmore, about 10 minutes drive from the Park (in the direction of Addo town), which sells fresh vegetables, salads, fruit, home-made bread, cakes and other supplies.
