Hello,
What is the best gate to enter for the Zuurberg section of Addo, particularly to access the hiking trails and the horseback riding? And, can I sign up for the horseback riding ahead of time? I'd also like to visit the main camp, so would you recommend one area before the other? I'm coming from/going back to Port Elizabeth.
Thank you,
Katie

Yes, you may book ahead of time for all the activities by calling (042) 233 8657. I'd suggest you come through to the Main Camp first, as you'll need to pay for and sign indemnity forms for the activities at the Game Drives Reception office.

The best entrance to the Main Camp would probably be to use the Main Gate:

Take the N2 highway towards Grahamstown. Take the turnoff to the left signposted “Motherwell” and “Addo Elephant National Park”. Turn left at the top of the off-ramp and proceed through Motherwell. Follow this road until you see the entrance to the park on the right. Distance: about 72 km or one hour travelling time.

Thereafter, directions from Main Camp to Zuurberg:

•Exit the Main Camp and turn left. About 1 km down the road, turn off towards Zuurberg Mountain Inn.
•Follow this gravel road (the Zuurberg Pass) for about 15km. Please take care when driving on the Zuurberg Pass as the road is fairly narrow and winding. You will see the Zuurberg Inn/Hotel on your right and the turnoff to the Park offices on your left.
•Follow this narrow gravel road until you reach the Park offices where you park your vehicle.
•The trip will take about 30 minutes.

Enjoy the trip!

Hi,
I don't find much info on Zuurberg section on Addo website, how is it?
We are planning a tour for end of Dec 2013 / beginning of Jan, about 14 days, start and end in Cape Town, and we would like to visit Addo, Karoo and some other park in the area, we arer still deciding.
Do you suggest to consider also this section, or only the main section and leave time for other parks?
thanks! :mrgreen:
