We had some of the most spectacular encounters with ellies in Spekboom. We purposefully chose a tent near the perimeter and I literally eyeballed a HUGE ellie... my skin was tingling. As you sleep at night you hear them rumble, wander and munch on vegetation on the perimeter...and from the hide at night we saw a herd of at least 40 ellies at the waterhole.

If you stay over at Spekboom (highly recommended), the gate by the side of the toilet block is a great viewing space late at night to see owls, ellies and watch other nocturnal creatures.

Bird life at Spekboom is great too, from thick knees to sunbirds.

We also saw zebra, warthog and deer.I would return there in an instant if I could. We stayed 3 nights at Spekboom but would gladly do longer.
