The good rain of the last weeks changed Addo's grasslands into a green carpet with lots of yellow and pink flowers....

Hi JJ

Thanks for sharing the splendours of Addo with us! I was wondering when somebody would do that. We were there on Sunday, and behind Carol's Rest the whole field is purple with vygies:

Beautiful pics. I am going to visit Addo (first time in 30 years), for a couple of days in December, and will not be camping, nor can I afford fancy private camp prices - any suggestions as to accommodation options would be appreciated.

Wow all these photos are fantastic - what time of year were these taken? We are visiting 8 December and my amateur photographer husband will be in his element if it is like this. We visited Kruger 2 years ago and cant wait to see our large friends again. It was desparately needing rain though and very arid. This is beautiful.

We visited Addo on Saturday and besides seeing a lot of game, what was so special was the wonderland of flowers. It was so spectacular :gflower: :dance: :gflower:

We were totally in awe at the beautiful splendour
