Addo Elephant National Park All Inclusive Full-Day Safari

1. Addo Elephant National Park All Inclusive Full-Day Safari

Get picked up from your hotel in Port Elizabeth, Bluewater Bay, or Colchester. Spend a full day exploring the third largest National Park in South Africa with an expert local guide. The original elephant section of the park was proclaimed in 1931, when only eleven elephants remained in the area.  Today you can see a variety of predators, antelope, zebra species, endangered black rhino as well as the unique Addo flightless dung beetle, found almost exclusively in Addo.  The park is also the only one in the world to conserve the “Big 7” – the Big 5 as well as the southern right whale and great white shark off the Algoa Bay coast.  An excursion to the Addo Elephant park is a must when visiting this unique area.

Jeffreys Bay: Learn to Surf Group Lesson

3. Jeffreys Bay: Learn to Surf Group Lesson

This learn-to-surf program is an all-inclusive lesson plan for beginner surfers. Follow a five-step program, with the ultimate goal of the lesson being to paddle, catch the wave, stand up and finally ride the wave toward the beach. For these lessons to be successful, groups are kept small so that each individual learner gets the necessary attention they require. Steps one to three are first explained and demonstrated on the beach, following this, they are put to practice in the ocean (in waist-deep water). Once steps one to three have been practiced successfully, you'll once again return to the beach with your instructor and go through the final two steps. Return to the ocean and practice these steps in order to achieve the ultimate goal of the surf lesson; standing up and riding a wave. At the end of the lesson, you'll be equipped with the necessary skills to practice basic surfing on your own.

What people are saying about Jeffreys Bay

King Elvis was our driver and it was an extraordinary day. Not only we got to see plenty of animals but Elvis was really professional and knowledgeable. Would recommend this experience to anyone and if you are lucky and get King Elvis as a driver then it is the cherry on the cake.

Wonderful full day safari experience with our guide Weslie. We spent a marvelous day at Addo Elephant Park, which is a must if you are around Port Elizabeth. We saw most animals during the day and really enjoyed the experience!

A perfect day with super nice hosts! The elephants come up to 3 meters from our vehicle. The snack was tasty and so was the beefburger!

We had a wonderful time. We saw lots of animals, even the lions. Our guide was great at spotting the wild animals.

It was an excellent excursion. Saw a lot of animals, the food was great and the guide was just great
