Just wanted to post on my very positive experience at Addo. We were concerned about the weather this time of year, but it worked out beautifully. We stayed in SANParks accommodations (Main Rest Camp) and were happy with everything there. We self drove part of the time and went on two of the park's game drives, one sunset, and one sunrise. We saw a lot of animals when self-driving but the game drives also seemed really worth it -- the vehicles went on some paths that cars aren't allowed on, and we saw larger families of animals (elephants, zebras) including youngsters up close. We didn't see the park's cats, but saw just about everything else. It was our first safari experience so we have nothing to compare it to, but the game viewing seemed excellent to us given the quantity and variety of animals, and how close we were to them. We were only there one night but spent the better part of two days in the park, and were able to see a lot in that amount of time.
