Hi All

With the fence that was removed ( see here )between North and South is the road that runs from Addo Town towards the East now Closed? Does it aslo imply that the South Gate is now near Colechester?
And if all of the above is correct, when will the maps on the website be updated to reflect the above?

Looking forward to being in Addo in March :mrgreen:

Thanks
B

Hi BDM,
The road that runs between Addo Town and the N10 (east) is still open as it is a public road. There are now 2 gates on either side of the road. You cannot enter the park via this road but could exit the park here if you needed to. Of course, the road can still be used for public thoroughfare (subject to time limit and speed limit).

There is still the Matyholweni Gate in the south of the Park, 3km from the N2 at Colchester.

The map of the addo main game area & colchester here Addo maps is updated but I have just noticed the full map is not - thanks for pointing this out. We'll update it shortly.

Ah, thanks, now I see the yellow gates marked on the map you linked.
I had thought that more of the fence was open.

What would the travel time be from Matyholweni Gate to main camp, at a Scenic pace?

We will open more of the fence in time.

Its about 36km from Matyholweni to Main camp but I would say at least and hour and a half (or longer if you happen to see somehting really exciting like a lion kill).
