Fantastically close to elephants!

We booked a one-day “Big 7” tour with Alan Tours. Alan picked us up at our accommodation (next door but one to his house in Seaview!) and delivered us to the port for our morning boat trip, provided by Raggy Charters.

Alan met us off the boat and we had a good filling lunch at the yacht club (included), then it was off to Addo, where we stayed until minutes before park closure.

Alan was friendly and informative throughout and took great care to ensure that everyone had a good view and took whatever photos they wanted, repositioning his vehicle as necessary.

Alan clearly has a great knowledge and experience of the animals in the park, as a result of which we were able to experience some extraordinarily close encounters, especially with elephants, without distressing the animals.
