About Addo Elephant Park
Addo Elephant Park, a sanctuary for a wide range of South Africa's Wildlife, is located in the thick bushveld of the Sundays River, in the Eastern Cape. The original section of the park was founded in 1931, in part due to the efforts of Sydney Skaife, in order to provide a sanctuary for the eleven remaining elephants in the area. Situated in a malaria free area just one hour\'s drive from Port Elizabeth, the park now has over 450 elephants, as well as Cape buffalo, a variety of antelope species and the unique flightless dung beetle.Read More
