Addo Elephant National Park was established in 1931 to safeguard the remaining 11 elephants in the region. Today, over 600 elephants inhabit the park. This magnificent park encompasses the seven major vegetation zones and is the only park in the entire world that offers protection to Africa's "big 7" - lion, buffalo, elephant, rhino, leopard, whale and great white shark.
Addo also contains St. Croix and Bird Island, a marine protected area that is of vital importance for penguins and gannets, as this is where the breeding process takes place. Addo Elephant National Park is not only known for the famous Addo elephants, but also for the dense vegetation that surrounds this territory and the animals and birds that live here, making this place even more impressive. Addo is the third largest national park in South Africa after Kruger National Park and Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.

St. Francis Bay
A picturesque coastal village
For the ultimate golf outing or a romantic getaway for two, a day trip to St Francis Bay is idyllic. St Francis Bay is also known as "Little Venice" and describes a series of small man-made canals and waterways perfect for boating, swimming, and other water sports.
The Bay is an architectural uniqueness in South Africa, as almost all the houses are roofed with thatched roofs, with the exception of the harbor quarter, which is built in the mediterranean style. The small town with its fine sandy white beaches is considered a water sports and fishing paradise.
Cape St Francis is also home to four nature reserves - Cape St Francis Nature Reserve, Seal Point Nature Reserve, Seal Bay Nature Reserve, Irma Booysen Flora Reserve - where a variety of hiking trails can be explored.
In the limestone-rich and sandy coastal strips, the rare St. Francis fynbos finds excellent conditions, however, since the immigration of the first Europeans, great damage has been done, so that the entire region is now protected.
About 20 years ago, a group of volunteers established a rehabilitation station for the African penguins at Cape St. Francis. These are the only penguins still living in the wild in Africa today. The reason for this was that due to tanker routes and oil spills, the original population of the animals shrank to only about 10% at the beginning of the 20th century and therefore the animals are under strict conservation.
Visiting the penguins with a guided tour of the station is highly recommended.
Jeffreys Bay is a favored tourist destination because of its surfing opportunities and Blue Flag beach. Jeffreys Bay is world-famous for its abundance of shellfish, great seafood and calamari, and the most vibrant waves in the world.
Jeffreys Bay transformed from a sleepy fishing village into an insanely fantastic surfer's paradise. Around Jbay, in various nature reserves, it is not only possible to discover whales and dolphins above and below the surface of the sea but also to climb great hiking trails and discover breathtaking bird species.
