  • Our tour guide Sidwell was very experienced in spotting wildlife and worked very hard to ensure that we saw all that the park has to offer. We came close up to buffalos, elephants, zebras, lions and many other animals. He stopped the car whenever we wanted and always placed it at the right angle so we could take perfect pictures. Whenever we saw an animal, he knew interesting information about this species and some fun facts as well. We had an amazing day in Addo Elephant park with lots of fun. I can highly recommend Afroventures Tours & Safaris!
  • Our guide, Sidwell, worked hard to ensure that we saw all that the park has to offer. We got up close to lions, elephants, ostriches, zebras, monkeys and too many more to list. When photo angles were tough he would move the vehicle to accommodate and even take some shots for us. While leaving the park as the sun was setting a huge bull elephant walked up the road right at us to cap off a great experience.
  • Sidwell is a wonderful guide with a perfect eye for wildlife spotting! Other than that everything was perfect. Thanks a lot!
  • On a lovely day in August we went to Addo Elephant park with our private guide. He showed us around and was as excited as we were about all the animals and nature in the park. No effort too much for him to give us the best possible experience in the park. We highly recommend Afroventures Tours & Safaris!
  • It was a very good experience. The guided tour was amazing and our guide "king Elvis" was very experienced. It was very easy to contact the team and make the booking. Super happy with the experience we had in this package.
  • This was a very nice day trip in this beautiful park. We saw fantastic wildlife and scenery. The guide and overall service were excellent.
  • A perfect day from start to finish. Collected from accomodation by your guide in an enclosed, sturdy and comfortable vehicle so the blaring sun and chilly wind doesn’t affect you. A full day of incredible animal experiences. Our guide, Sidwell, was so knowledgeable about the park and the animals and made every effort to find the animals to make our day incredible, keeping in touch with the other guides about where animals had been sighted. A delicious fresh packed lunch was provided at a picnic area. I can’t fault this tour and highly recommend it to anyone.
  • It was a super day! John was a very pleasant guide who knew a huge amount about the Addo national park, very interesting. We were lucky to see very many animals (elephants, lions, Buffalo, zebras, hyena’s etc...). I definitely recommend this tour!
  • It was a cold day. The tour started off without many animals in sight. I another car stopped and ask is whether we have seen any animals because they have been touring for two hours without seeing any. Even the big water holes were deserted. However, we had such a great guide who was able to find lots of elephants, and many many other animals throughout the whole park. Except the lions, we saw almost all animals (apart from some birds) we wanted to see. It was great fun.
  • Beside the animal spotting, loved al the animal fun facts and the lovely lunch. Also very convenient to be picked up at your stay.
  • I took the Addo Elephant National Park Inclusive Full-day safari; the tour guide was John. It was the best safari I have ever had; he was knowledgeable about the animals and plants, including the vegetation, and knew a lot about the park's history. I would recommend it to everyone who would like to enjoy a relaxed safari with a well-informed guide who knows the places and areas where to find the best spots.
  • Allen was the best chauffeur for this trip. We got the best of what was to see that day… The downside was the trip was sold as the big five safari. That was not true, the leopard had not been seen since 2007
  • Was really good - would have loved to do more animal spotting. It's enough i don't want to add something else
  • Picked up at the cruise port and taken to Addo park , saw plenty of animals and had an excellent Brie (bbq) excellent guide and chef in wanele ,
  • A nice safari during which we saw elefants, zebras, buffalos, lions, warthogs, ostrich... We were 6 + driver in a minivan, so there was a good possibility to take pictures to both sides. We also had a nice lunch with out fellow guests. The driver was nice and helpful. The elefants and zebras you could find close to the van, but the lions were quite far, so I recommend a camera with a long-focus lens if possible (I had a 70-200 and 100-400). The starting time had changed from 9 to 7.30 am the night before and as we didn't have access to whatsapp then we had missed this info. Fortunatelly we got a phone call at 8.10 to ask where we were. Hakuna Matata in the end though. :)
  • We did the full day tour with Afroventures to Addo Elephant National Park leaving from our Cruise ship. Our guide (king) Elvis was great. On route to the park we were informed about the day ahead and what we might see. He proved knowledgeable about the park and animals and very funny. The vehicle we were in was comfortable and had big windows that opened wide for convenient photo taking. Sadly the weather was foul, with rain all day which meant the animal were under cover and although we saw other animals we saw very few elephants. The tour was well organised, we were picked up and dropped off at the port on time. Elvis was a great guide and he was as dissapointed as we all were in the vehicle that we saw so few animals.
  • All communications prior to tour were very good, prompt and clear. We were travelling on a cruise ship and found out the night before the tour that our ship was going to arrive in Port Elizabeth later than scheduled. We let them know and they messaged back to say it was ok and they would wait for us at the cruise terminal. Some fellow passengers who had booked with a different company weren't so lucky and missed their tour. Our transport was comfortable and plenty of cold water was provided. We had a really lovely day in the National Park seeing lots of different wildlife as well as numerous groups of elephants at close range. Our guide was very nice, very informative, drew our attention to lots of things that we wouldn't otherwise have noticed and prepared a very decent lunch including vegetarian options and a variety of drinks. Would definitely recommend them!
  • I really enjoyed the tour. We saw a lot of elephants and kudu, along with a few other species. Our guide was very knowledgeable, the truck was comfortable and the lunch was fantastic. They take you to an upmarket steak house and you order whatever you want from the menu, including the huge 600g steaks
  • We had a wonderfull day with our guide. Stafford was friendly and looked after us. We saw a lot of Elephants and other animals. We learned a lot about the animals who live in the park
  • Super Guide with tons of information about Flora and fauna in the NP. Highly recommended. IT was a great day in the Bush
  • We had a wonderful one-day Safari trip with our guide Stafford who knew a lot about the wildlife and good spotting locations in Addo. We were two of four people total in a nice comfortable ride, with a nice lunch and good communication regarding pickup/dropoff at our guest house in Port Elizabeth. Recommended!
  • It was an extremely amazing safari. I saw for the first time in my life many exotic animals (I come from the Italian mountains) and beautiful views. Kindly recommend King Elvis, a great guide, he is fun and full of joy, but he also has great knowledge and is very passionate in his work.
  • We had the most amazing day in Addo🤩 we saw many different animals like warthogs, tortoises, ostriches, buffaloes, bucks and A LOT OF elephants😍 but the best part of our trip was our amazing guide John, who brought laughter, great pictures and sightings and an amazing lunch to us❤️ So grateful and definetely would recommend going here even if you only have a few days in Port Elizabeth😊
  • Can't recommend John as a guide highly enough! He knows the park and where to take you, with a incredible knowledge of all the animals. Having him as a guide was the best part of my Addo trip Saw lions, elephants and loads more, got a flight to PE as the safari options around Cape Town were not so good.
