Cantwait- For what
I was in Addo in December, and also grew up in the city of Port Elizabeth (PE). Depending on where you stay in PE, it is a relatively short trip to Addo, about 45min at most, which, if budgets are a constraint (which it was for me) then travel to the park every day. Having said that, staying overnight in the park is the best, especially if you can stay in the rondavels overlooking the waterhole-nothing beats seeing a herd of Elephants coming for a drink at night. I saw them drinking during the day, but that was many moons ago, and still to this day I remember that experience. Lifetime memories. As far as game drives/self drives-both have their advantage. Nothing quite like seeing an animal that is the result of your own searching. Game drives on the other hand gives you opportunity to see animals you would perhaps not see. I prefer the self drive, you can get out at many of the places -and there are many- where it is allowed, which you may not be able to do on a game drive? When I was there, I stopped at one of these places and was pleasantly surprised to watch a paiar of hawks struggling against prevailing winds, as they tried to make headway as well as hunt.
PE is a great place for a honeymoon, though I'd guess this is just part of a bigger trip.
Did anyone tell you that by joining this Forum, you are obliged to present a Trip Report of your time there, complete with photos, journals, photos, experiences, photos, scary moments, photos etc etc. Ok, I think i've covered it.
Have a fabulous trip- You never know, I might just be there too! You know about the yellow ribbon?
