About Addo Main Rest Camp Addo Elephant National Park SANParks

Addo Main Rest Camp is a popular main rest camp of the park and offers a wide variety of accommodation units to suit all tastes as well as plenty of activities to keep visitors busy. A unique feature is the waterhole lookout point within the camp, floodlit at night, and the underground hide allowing close encounters with wildlife at the waterhole.

Evenings are punctuated with the call of lions, spotted hyenas and jackals, while francolin and bokmakieries herald each dawn. Accommodation units are situated within easy walking distance of each other and facilities including a swimming pool, restaurant and shop.

Activities available include game drives, horse trails, 4x4 trails, hiking trails, and marine eco tours.

The climate is temperate to hot and temperatures in summer (November to February) may reach over 40 degrees Celsius. Winter days are mild but cold at night with frost occurring at times. The average annual rainfall is 450 mm and is spread throughout the year, although peaks do often occur in February/March and October/November.

Other useful information at this rest camp:

- Some loops of the tourist roads in the park are tarred while the others are graveled. The gravel roads are in good condition and can be accessed with a normal vehicle, but these may be closed in very wet weather. The main entrance road into the park is tarred.

- Vehicle fuel is available in all parks (or is available on the park periphery).

- Insect repellent is recommended, especially in summer.

- No immunisations are needed for travel to the park as it is situated in a malaria-free area.

The excellent view from the safari tent with game grazing in the valley below. Everything was clean, comfortable and in place.

No matter what time of the year you visit Addo it never fails to deliver. We didn't need to move from our safari tent at main camp as the elephants came to us and with it being so hot the best place to view the waterhole was in the hide!

The forest hut was not too clean. I moved the bed to pick up something that I dropped and was disgusted to see old tissues, sweet papers and loads of dust!

Of the 6 cooking stoves in the caravan rest camp only one was functional. Also the Hydroboil hot water systems were out of order.
