We are booked in to Matyholweni for 2 nights in late August and would like to do either an evening or early morning guided drive. Which is best at that time of year.? How long does it take to drive from the camp to where the guided tours start? :?

Hi Cleenpin
The early morning drives start before the gates to the game viewing area is open to the public. additionally the night game drive finishes after the gates close for the night.
Transiting through the park is therefore not possible before and after the two drives.
Travel using roads outside the park is posible but would take considerably longer. You should also consider your safety travelling during darkness.
Forum members from the area should be able to advise you better than me.
Addo is a very special place - enjoy your trip
Regards
JDW

Hi cleenpin,
To drive through the Park from Matyholweni to main camp takes about 1 and a half hours for the 36km (because of the speed limit in the park). You will first need to check the current game area gate closing times before seeing if it is possible to drive through at that time. Alternatively, you can travel on the roads outside the Park, via Paterson and the R342. This will take you about 45 minutes for 65km.
