Addo Honeymoon Itinerary

The Eastern Cape of South Africa is the second largest of nine provinces. It is rich in history and some of the most powerful political figures, including Nelson Mandela, were born here. The region is the ancestral stronghold for the Xhosa people. Geographically our province boasts superb beaches with some 800 km of coastline.

The Greater Addo is a beautiful area of the Eastern Cape, most famous for the Big 5 Addo Elephant National Park. The boundaries of the park run from the Zuurberg mountains down to the coast incorporating the Sundays River Valley. The Addo Elephant National Park is the third largest national park in South Africa and home to over 600 African elephant as well as lion, buffalo, rhino and leopard.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. The Addo region has so much more to offer. In fact, it ticks all the boxes for honeymooners looking for a range of fun-filled adventurous activities to enjoy together.

We recommend booking a three to four day stay at our Addo safari lodge when planning your itinerary in this area. This is the perfect length of time to explore the Addo Elephant National Park, experience Addo’s wide range of activities while also spending enough time relaxing together.
