Addo Elephant Park is perfect a short visit – the park is not too large and it is easy to have very good game viewing, and a good chance to see Lions as well at one of the waterholes. The kudus in this region of the country are the most magnificent of the species with beautiful horns. Rooihartebees, Eland, Springbok, Rhinos, Black backed Jackal, Zebras and Buffaloes are other frequently spotted animals. The Cape Buffaloes love the water at Carols Waterhole; often they lie in the water for hours making the other animals wait. The best animal sighting are at the waterholes as it is quite a dry region.
