I'm thinking about making a reservation for the day December 6 in Addo Rest Camp.Otherwise my flight leaves the 7th from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town at 8:45 AM.I wonder if it is possible to leave the park early to get to the airport on time.I've been reading the schedules and show that the park opens at 7 AM.I'ts Possible leave The Park before 7 Am?
Thank you.

Hi
My understanding is that you can only enter the area where wildlife is after 7am, however the main camp is not in the wildlife area and therefore you can leave at anytime by arrangement with the security staff.
You will not be able to depart from the Colchester gate.
Hope this helps
Enjoy your stay it is a wonderful park

Hi
Your English is very good and much better than my Spanish.
Yes you can leave from Addo Rest Camp at any time.
It is only the Game viewing area that is closed.
On arrival ensure that you tell the reception of your plans. Also speak to the security staff so that they know as you will also have to hand your accommodation key in at the gate.
Hope this helps
Regards
JDW
