AMAZING ADDO │10 PHOTOS THAT YOU WON'T BELIEVE ARE ADDO
Sunday, 3rd May 2020
Addo National Park is best known for its elephant population, one of the largest in South Africa and, more recently with the inclusion of the coastal section, as the only African Big Seven national park on the planet. Visitors can expect wildlife sightings, marine wildlife, adventure, nature, mountains, coastline, dunes and, believe it or not, citrus orchards and some of the most charming farm-stays in the Greater Addo region.
Here are ten photos that you won't believe are from Addo...

MORE THAN ELEPHANTS
Addo's elephants are, without a doubt, the main attraction (along with lions, rhino and other four-legged African wonders) but the Zuurberg Mountains offer a range of hiking and biking activities for adventurous families.
