Addo Elephant Park Full Day Tour 

We booked in advance by email and received an excellent rapid response from Angelika who was extremely efficient and obliging and gave us full details.

When we docked we were greeted by our tour guide Malcolm who was waiting for us in a smart vehicle.

Since it was just my wife Angela and me on the tour we set off for a pleasant drive to Addo Elephant Park.

Malcolm is a Park ranger and was fantastic throughout the day. He knew exactly where to go to see animals and was in touch constantly with other guides re sightings.We were delighted to see 15 different species of animals; elephant,zebra,kudu,lion,lioness,buffalo,warthog,rhino,dung beetle,tortoise,buzzard,and more.

We were amazed that the lion and elephants came right up to our vehicle.

Malcolm took us for a very nice lunch in the park before we visited other parts of the park and then returned us to our ship, Silver Cloud, at the required time for sailing.

A totally fantastic day throughout which we would recommend to anyone, and we send our thanks to all involved at Alan Tours.
