Addo: How long should we stay?

Unread post by sander Hofman » Sun Nov 06, 2016 2:57 pm

Hi there! I am not new to the forum, but I am to Addo. Therefore I need a little piece of advise.
We visit Kruger every few years and we always stay for about a week. This time we will be on holiday between PE to CPT area and figured to include a week of safari, because not doing one is just no option. ;-)
It will be in May and we are travelling with 6. (two children age 3 and 7, grandparents, my wife and I). I was thinking about a couple of nights in one of the guesthouses in Addo Rest Camp. How many days do we need to get a good feel for the park?
Many thanks in advance!

I'm going for 3 nights in December - that gives me 2 full days. I would have loved 3 full days -I think anything less may be to short.

We were in Addo for 4 nights this past June. I think that was more than enough to experience the park. But it surely differs from person to person. My longest stay in Karoo National Park was 3 weeks (and a number of other long stays between 1 - 2 weeks). But I still cannot get enough of the park. I keep on returning (and some people cannot understand my intense love for this park).

After a number of day visits to Addo (many years ago), I thought I'll have to give this park a try as so many other forum members are so enthusiastic about the park. For some or other reason, it could not creep under my skin. But others love it and cannot get enough of it. Thus, maybe 4 nights will be too few for some people.

Thanks Stoffel. I'll give it a go for three nights and see what happens. :-)

sander,
I would say nothing less than 3 nights... :)
A few years ago we camped at Addo for 3 weeks :) :dance:
The camp ground is lovely, and the chalets look rather good too :thumbs_up:
We had a great time , and not once did we ever feel it was for too long...
We really enjoyed every day, and never got tired or bored...
Every drive into the game area presented something different... :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:
So hope you enjoy each day, however long you are able to stay :thumbs_up:
