Hi Emanuel

When driving that route, at Paterson, turn off the N10 onto the R342 (left turn if you are traveling north) and about 12km on you will come to the main gate of Addo.

I did not express myself properly :doh: :redface:
We wanted to get into Addo from the N10 and then through the Addo transit gravel road.

Meanwhile, I know that you can only use the one at the main camp at the Southern Entrance near Colchester.

Ah, ok. The 'farm' road that divides Addo (main) from the Colchester section.

I am not sure, I will try find out for you.

Hi,
The farm road to Addo has never been used for acces to the park. You have to enter at Colchester or the Main camp.
Enjoy,

Hi

As Dinkybird mentioned, best would be to take the R342 from Paterson to get to Main Camp. Alternatively, if you're in no rush to get to Main Camp, and prefer to work your way through the Park first, the Matyholweni Gate in the southern section of the park is your better bet, off the N2.

I hope this answers your question.
