The Addo Elephant National Park is situated just outside Port Elizabeth. The Southern Gate is only 30 minutes from town while the main rest camp is 75km away. Addo is the third largest National Park in South Africa and home to nearly 500 elephants. Addo is probably the best place in the world where one can see wild African elephants in big numbers and up close. Addo is also tagged as the first Big 7 game reserve in the world. It boasts the Big 5 (elephant, lion, buffalo, rhino and leopard) as well as the Great White Shark and Southern Right Whale (in season) within its Marine Coastal Reserve.
