Southern right whales are also usually seen very close inshore nearby to the harbor during July to October as they enter the safety of the bay to give birth. These whales are the most frequ...

What people are saying about Port Elizabeth

We had a great full day tour with our guide Joel. From the pick-up in our accommodation to lunch (delicious South African "braai") everything was organized very well. Joel knew all the tricks on how to best find the animals and we saw lots of elephants, kudus, zebras, buffalo, turtles and even a few lions. Of course, it's always a matter of luck with the animals, but Joel just got everything out for us. Thanks for that!

If you want to see lots of elephants, Addo is your place. We saw lots of other wild animals too. Our driver was difficult to hear (open jeep) but whenever we said 'stop' to look closer or shoot pictures, he stopped. He was also able to spot lions which we had no way of spotting, as they were far away.

We really enjoyed the tour with them. John was a great guide, he knew a lot about the animals and we always safe. The Picnic was awsome. Unfortunately some roads in the park were closed. Thanks a lot John!
