Christmas in Addo Elephant National Park

09 December 2013

Restaurant Manager, Wayne Range, says the three-course meal, featuring a three-meat main course, was well-received by patrons last year.  “Judging by the reviews, it made sense for us to offer Christmas Day lunch again this year, and it only costs R160 per person,” he said.

It’s an alternate way to spending Christmas.  Visitors can choose to work their way through the Park from the Camp Matyholweni gate near Colchester before ending up at the main rest camp for lunch, or they could opt to exit that way afterwards while enjoying the Park’s sights and sounds along the way.  All-in-all, the day’s outing will prove to be a leisurely alternative to those wanting to do something a bit different this Christmas.

The two sittings are at 12:00 and 14:00 and the restaurant will close at 16:00.  Bookings are essential to avoid disappointment.  To book your table contact (042) 233 8674 or e-mail
