This safari vacation will take place in Addo Elephant National Park, South Africa. Addo Elephant National Park is situated in the beautiful Sundays River Valley. The accessibility of this area, being close to "The Garden Route" to the southwest and to "Settler Country" and "The Wild Coast" to the east makes this malaria free area a very desirable destination for international visitors.
This is one of the world's great conservation that embraces one of the highest concentrations of big game in Africa. In addition to the famous elephants of Addo, the park also has lions, black rhinos, buffalos, hyenas, jackals, and a variety of antelope whilst over 165 species of birds have been recorded as well as the flightless dung beetle which is almost endemic to Addo.
The prominent vegetation in the area is a subtropical thicket commonly known as "Valley Bushveld" – this is a biome unique to the river valleys of the Eastern Cape where the plants are tough and drought resistant (the average annual rainfall is only 385mm).
