SANParks: Addo Elephant Park

Addo Elephant National Park is a diverse wildlife conservation park situated close to Gqeberha in South Africa and is one of the country's 20 national parks. It currently ranks third in size after Kruger National Park and the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. I was born in Port Elizabeth and this is one of the trips we use to do with my dad. When he died it all got a bit much and after his funeral and this haven was the perfect respite ...

The marine section proclaimed in 2005 makes the Addo Elephant National Park unique in that it conserves the Big 7 that includes the Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Buffalo as well as the southern right whale and great white shark.

Like most South African children, I have memories of sitting on my Dad’s lap and ‘driving’ us through the Park…

It seemed fitting that after his passing I spent a day going solo and enjoying the company of these gentle giants – so good for the soul. The photos can do the talking.
