COMBO - TRIPLE - 2 Day Tour - Animals & River

Activity Information

Qualified guides will take you into the Addo Elephant National Park for 8 hours where you will enjoy this wonderful National Park and information from our guide. The next morning join a river cruise at 9.00 a.m. This will follow a river cruise of at least 2 to 2 1/2 hours on the river and be given exposure to the famous Alexandria Dune Fields. Leave the lodge afterwards and visit the Nanaga Farm Stall on your way to the Private Game Reserve.

Addo Elephant National Park is the third largest National Park in South Africa with a unique character of its own, placing it among the most bio diverse National Parks in the world. This big 5 park will be brought alive through your guide who will do their best to find you as many animals sightings as they can during your period in the Park. Be assured that between this amazing park and the Private Game Reserve where you will be in open vehicles, the next day, you will have as many varieties of animals as you could wish to see in two days.

The Sundays River starts beyond the mountains where the extremities of Addo Elephant National Park starts. Explore the section where the river flows between the villages of Colchester and Cannonville and the world famous Alexandria Dune Fields, to where it flows into Algoa Bay. One of the fastest in flowing (from the sea) and out flowing rivers in the Eastern Cape. Ecologically clean enough to swim, fish, canoe in. The ferry will take you to the river mouth and give you the opportunity of accessing the dune fields which are classified as the longest, widest coastal dune fields in the Southern Hemisphere.
