Thanks so much for the info PJL. I only wish the Park weren't so full at all the times we want to go! Still, I am sure we will get there somehow :hmz:

Wow PJL, just read your 2 amazing days in Addo.

We're also PE residents and have also seen many animals in our various visits, but never such a variety in two days. Very fortunate.

Thanks for taking the time to share with us, even though it was some time ago.

Hi sjordan,
The best option would be a forest cabin (4 single beds in one room, own shower and toilet, communal kitchen) or a family chalet (room with 2 beds plus sleeper couch and 2 single beds in the open plan lounge/kitchen - but there is only one of these in the park) or a chalet with sleeper couch (sleeper couch and 2 single beds in the open plan lounge/kitchen). Or if you want the luxury option, there are the two 4-star guesthouses which have two bedrooms and two bathrooms and sleep 6.

Hi Megan (Addo Elephant)
Thanks for the information. Is the sleeper couch in the chalet ok for 2 small kids?

Yes, the couch can accommodate two children.

or...if you like to "rough it" - The camp sites can accommodate a family sized tent, with Braai Facilities, restaurant, and electricity....communal bathroom etc.

Kids will love that, kinda like camping in the backyard, but your neighbours are the big 5

If you take the forest cabina, during teh afternoon the live bush shrikes visit, as do the francolins....amazing.... :mrgreen:
