Barefoot Addo Elephant Lodge offers both day visitors and lodge guests elephant safaris throughout the distinct plains, valleys and forests of the bushveld.

Game Viewing

Elephant encounters on the reserve include observing the Elephants in their natural environment and also include feeding these gentle giants. Elephant Encounters depart three times a day and are approximately 1.5 hours in duration, and is the best place to see Elephants in South Africa.

A private half day or full day tour to Addo Elephant National Park can be pre-booked. This option is available for guests eager to view the popular Big 5 wildlife and includes lunch and refreshments.
