Addo Elephant National Park

Deep within the shadows of the dense valley bushveld of the Sundays River region of the Eastern Cape in South Africa lies the famous Addo Elephant National Park.  The original Elephant section of the park was proclaimed in 1932 when only eleven elephants remained in this region.  Today, this unique ecosystem in South Africa is a sanctuary to over 455 elephants, Cape buffalo, black rhino, a variety of antelope species, as well as the flightless dung beetle, found almost exclusively in the Addo Elephant National Park.

Plans exist to expand the now 165 000 ha Addo National Elephant Park into a 362 000 ha national park. Also, projects include the proposed proclamation of a 125 000 ha marine reserve that includes islands that are home to the world's most significant breeding populations of Cape gannets and the second largest breeding population of African penguins.
