Walking with elephants

The Addo Elephant National Park is one of Port Elizabeth’s biggest attractions. There is very few game viewing experiences that get close to having a big herd of elephants passing within arm’s length of your car. But for those who wants a more personal elephant experience, a visit to Addo Elephants Back Safaris in the Zuurberg Mountains is a must. Although the main activity there is riding the elephants, my favorite experience was walking with them. It gives you the opportunity to get close to them in their natural environment and even better, get photos that you can’t get from a game drive vehicle.

    Looks fantastic. At one stage of my life, all I wanted to do was join Ian Douglas Hamilton and work with elephants so I think I should visit this place to live my teenage fantasy.Thanks for the comments on my blog – I use walking as my main form of exercise – very lucky to have Table Mt on our doorstep.

    I'd like to walk with the elephants. Wouldn't mind a ride either. Must have been fun.

    The elephants are my favorites of all seen in ZA. I really want to do this! I just won't wear a hat. 😉
