Thank you all for your kind comments and reading about our Addo adventures.
This was indeed a fantastic time at Addo Elephant National Park. :D
We expected to see elephants, zebras and kudus, we hoped to see the lions during a morning drive,
but looking at all the wonderful pictures shows there was so much more.
Who expects to see Blackies, suricates and hyenas which are so relaxed?
We had three very entertaining days and were blessed with a variety of special sightings.

Thank you all, maybe you are now ready for the West Coast Adventures .:wink:

Hi Sable

I really did not expect to see such great sightings in Addo. You are right, elephants are a given along with zebras and other general game but your Travel Tale surprised me. Hyenas and black rhinos....Wow did not expect to see that. Thank you for sharing your wonderful adventure.

hilda, we really had three very busy days, with a lot of moments of the category "Expect the unexpected!"
The animals are often so close that it doesn't matter when you don't have your zoom lens. :wink:

Hi Sable,
Great TR, lovely photos, especially loving the baby ellies! Been thinking about including Addo on my wishlist for my next trip. Your TR is really making me feel like that's the right call. And making my itchy feet even itchier! Thank you so much for sharing!

Thank you Mez for your kind comment, glad you enjoyed my report.

You definitely should add a visit to the Addo Elephants to your next route.
Those little ellies are real cuties. :lol:
