Award-Winning Luxury Accommodation, Elephant Encounters & Game Drives in Addo, Eastern Cape
Situated within the Greater Addo region, adjoining the Addo Elephant National Park, just a short distance from Nelson Mandela Bay metropole, our fully fenced game reserve is both malaria free and tourist friendly.
Whether you just want to relax, or are looking for an action-packed adventure trip, we also offer you a unique elephant experience. Our lodge has been awarded 4 stars by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa.
Nature conservation is the idea behind our safaris – and also our commitment.
Addo Elephant Lodge and Safaris is committed to protecting and preserving the natural environment as effectively as possible. When planning our resort we were determined that every effort would be made not to disturb the finely balanced ecosystem of our region.
Consequently, we constructed both the supporting pillars and the extensive viewing decks of our luxurious lodges from recycled boxwood that was used by Daimler to transport car components.
Our resolute commitment to the protection of resources also means that we use an eco reed bed system to treat all our wastewater. The wastewater slowly seeps through an immense root system that purifies it so efficiently that the resulting water can be used again.
To further safeguard the environment all of our lodges are equipped with energy-efficient, wood burning fireplaces, a solar-powered water heating system and energy-saving light bulbs.
