People from all over the world travel to Africa on a daily basis to, amongst many things, see elephants in the wild. Here in Port Elizabeth we are extremely privileged to have Addo Elephant National Park as well as many private game reserves right on our doorstep. I could easily hop in my car and within an hour be watching wild elephants in their natural environment in Addo. From 9 - 13 September is South African National Parks Week and South Africans can visit any SAN Park for free. Mahala. Pasella. It will cost you absolutely nothing to get in the gate. Pity though that they don't extend the offer for the weekend as well.
