A great day out.

In February, we were on a cruise that called at Port Elizabeth, so we decided to do a full day excursion to Addo Elephant Park .

After looking at various web sites and reviews, we selected Alans Tours, and they were able to take us. We booked on line, and everything was done in a very friendly and efficient manner.

When we docked and left the ship, our vehicle and driver were waiting on the quay, and off we went on the 50 minute drive to the park. We were accompanied by Barry and Sonia, a couple from Brisbane who were great fun.

Out vehicle was clean , comfortable and spacious, and our driver/guide, Malcolm , was superb. Highly knowledgeable about all the animals, birds and flowers that we saw ,and always very pleasant and easy to listen to and talk with.

We stopped for an hour for lunch, which was included in the price, and this was another good experience. The restaurant was busy, but we had a table reserved for us , and Malcolm made some suggestions re the menu which we followed and had a good meal.

We got back to the ship in good time for the departure having had an extremely good excursion.

We saw plenty of wildlife in good company, with a splendid driver/ guide. I would recommend Alans Tours with no hesitation at all.
