Apart from Matthys, who likes the cold :wink:

Addo is a park where you see animals the whole day, not only early morning or evening. In the afternoon we had the ellies at the water hole in front of the rondavel in the morning we had ellies at all the other waterholes and in between jackals, buffaloes, red hartebeasts, warthogs and lots of birds. We did not see the black rhino which migh appear latist at the waterhole (we were probably sleeping :wink: ) nor lions that probably show up in the early morning, mostly at Carols rest. Also the Kudus came to the water hole in the late afternoon. We had it just in front of the terrasse :dance: :dance:

When you are at the main camp, do pay a visit to the bird hide and have a look at all the red bishops fluttering about. They are so lovely in the reeds :thumbs_up:

Differently from other Sanparks camps you eat very well at the main camp restaurant :thumbs_up:

Hi STF

Going to Addo in warmer weather will greatly enhance your chances of seeing major elephant activity at the waterholes, especially Hapoor!
When it is cold, they MAY come out of the thick bush for a quick drink, but they are reluctant to really play in the water and hang around for hours. In March, they will be there by 8 in the morning, and all day long... Can get quite hot, though.
Just don't go in school holidays....

God bless, and thanks for your lovely TR -- am loving it!

Friedrich von Hörsten

Micetta - What you and Friedrich are saying about Addo has made us make up our minds. Thank you so much for all that information. :thumbs_up:

Friedrich - Thanks once again for you detailed response. :thumbs_up: Between you and Micetta we are going to go in March. We also need to Kenton on Sea for 2 days to check up on the plot we have in Bathurst. We need to chat to some estate agents as we now want to sell it. Sorry - I am going off track.
