7:30 am pick up at place of residence in Port Elizabeth and depart in the 4 x 4 Toyota Land cruiser safari vehicle for the Kabouga section, Greater Addo Elephant National Park. We travel via the picturesque town of Kirkwood before entering the rugged Northern areas of this famous National Park. This is a unique experience and one will meet with few if any other tourists.
We spend the day exploring the area while constantly heading North through changing scenery into a valley where we take a break for a cup of coffee or tea at the campsite on the banks of the Sundays River while stretching our legs in this wilderness area.
Checking in, we travel through increasingly rough terrain, keeping an eye out for species such as, Warthog and Eland, Red Hartebeest, Klipspringer and Zebra as well as the stately Kudu, the males with their huge horns blending into the background.
Continuing, we enter the 4 x 4 route, traversing undulating terrain, steep sided valleys and rocky streambeds, ever alert to the birds and beasts that inhabit the area.
We stop under the riverine trees in these steep valleys where we unpack our picnic lunch, after which, we summit the top of the Zuurberg Mountains, a place offering huge vistas both to the South towards the coast and the North into the Little Karoo, Lake Darlington and beyond.
From the summit we start descending into the Little Karoo, where we keep a watch for Ostrich, Zebra and the possibility of sighting a rare Black Rhino before reaching Lake Darlington and slowly make our way back to Port Elizabeth.
