Addo Elephant National Park, Eastern Cape, South Africa - Classic 4
The Elephant House is an exclusive thatched lodge set in the Sundays River Valley, only minutes away from the Addo Elephant National Park. After a hot day in the bush, return for a refreshing dip in the swimming pool or retreat to one of the deep verandas or to the map room.
Eight spacious bedrooms are beautifully decorated opening out onto courtyards and private verandas. Sip a sundowner before a sumptuous candle-lit dinner; prepared with great flair and personal attention.
The in-house field guide, an elephant expert with many years experience with the elephants of Addo, conducts daily game drives through the National Park in open Land Cruiser, departing and ending at The Elephant House. Drinks and snacks are provided on the game drive.
Addo is situated in the beautiful Sundays River Valley, only 40 minutes from Port Elizabeth airport. The accessibility of this area coupled with its close proximity to the Garden Route and Cape Town makes the Addo Elephant Park and its surrounding areas an extremely desirable destination.
Two kilometres away from the Elephant House is the Addo Polo Club where Polo is played in the cooler winter months and cricket in summer.
Plettenberg Bay and Knysna are only 3-hours away and Cape St Francis, which has beautiful beaches, is only an hour and a half.
