Since there have been a number of misleading reports in the media and we have had concerned emails and phone calls from visitors, we would like to clarify that the recent attack on two German tourists did not take place in Addo Elephant National Park.
The attack took place at a bed & breakfast etsablishment near the town of Addo, and not in the Park. Many people, including the media, hear the word "Addo" and assume it refers to the national park while there is an area called Addo nearby the Park.
Although we are shocked at the incident, we would like to reassure visitors that we do have effective security measures in place at the Park, both to protect visitors and wildlife.
