Addo Game Reserve – Gorah Elephant Camp

Addo Elephant Park is absolutely amazing. I couldn’t believe all the elephants I saw there and the baby elephants were so cute! I highly recommend a visit to this amazing elephant sanctuary.

Elephants. Over 350 roaming elephants. What better selling point is there than that?

Addo Elephant Park was proclaimed in 1931 as a fortress for the 11 remaining African elephants in the area. As the elephant population increased and the park became more successful the surrounding land and adjacent farms were acquired and has resulted in the Addo National Park covering an impressive 492 000 hectares.

Great journal!

Palm trees make me smile!

Nice article!


Coming from Yorkshire I still get very excited when I see a palm tree as you certainly won’t find many, if any, there!   To me they depict tropical holidays and far away places!  “Where the wild things are!”  (One of my favourite childhood books).

I just came from Beach Street in Melbourne where the road was lined with palms and once again I find them right outside my front door here in Cape Town!  Isn’t life just one big tropical holiday all of a sudden!   Well not quite but I am trying to keep my chin up whilst going through the (to be expected) anxiety brought on from moving to a new country.  If you go back to some of my posts earlier in the year you will discover my excitement, trepidation and words of wisdom on how to settle in to a foreign land.  Well I…

Elephant mother saves her calf from near drowning

What a great story! Addo Elephant park is absolutely amazing. I would recommend any visitor to South Africa take the time to make this a part of their adventure. I’ve never seen so many amazing elephants!

African Travel Concept

Ian and Debbie McFarlane share their special sighting of an elephant herd helping a distressed calf.

Debbie and Ian live in Port Elizabeth and are regular visitors to Addo Elephant Park. They usually go for day trips, but a couple of weeks ago they camped at Addo for the weekend.

On Saturday morning 16 March, they went for an early game drive. They headed for the Hapoor Dam, via Gwarrie Pan and Rooidam. At Rooidam they saw a herd of buffalo wallowing in the mud. They got to Hapoor around 9 am and things were quite busy already. There were about 40 elephants in the vicinity of the waterhole.

Not long after the arrival, there was a commotion among a section of the herd that was standing at the edge of the dam. A lot of the ellies were very agitated, trumpeting and shuffling around. One of the SanParks
