Addo Main Camp is located in the Eastern Cape region of South Africa. The camp is situated deep within the bushveld of the Sundays River Valley in the Addo Elephant National Park. A safari in this region is characterized by a malaria-free environment that is known for its high density of elephant. About 450 of these giants inhabit the area. The region is also home to the 'Big 7', which includes lion, buffalo, elephant, rhino, leopard, whale and the great white shark. Various antelope species occur throughout Addo. Visitors should look out for the flightless dung beetle, which is found almost nowhere else.

Addo Main Camp offers a variety of accommodation types, ranging from guest houses to chalets. Every room procured through African Sky is private with an en suite bathroom. Guests have the option to choose between double, twin or single beds when booking a stay at the camp. A few multi-bedroom units are also available. All accommodation types are serviced daily. The structures have been built in the traditional style of 'rondavels' under thatch.

The rondavels overlook a floodlit waterhole. Guests can relax on the verandah of their rondavel while observing animals arriving to quench their thirst. Guests are also welcome to make use of the lookout platform or underground hide, where an even closer encounter may be savored. An a la carte restaurant is available for dining. Additionally, the camp also hosts a small shop where basic amenities and curios can be purchased. Guests on safari in Addo can enjoy guided game drives, horse trails and 4x4 trails.

Riaan's Review

The serviced lodgings provided at Addo Main Camp are of a high standard when compared to the camps in South Africa's other national parks. It is, however, still basic, but comfortable accommodation, conveniently located inside the Addo Elephant National Park itself. The camp offers a restaurant and a small shop, and is an ideal overnight destination for those wishing to enjoy the wildlife of Addo from nice, clean, comfortable and affordable accommodation.
