Nelson Mandela Bay Pass: Addo Elephant Park

While hearing about something and actually looking at the benefits in detail are two different things, after further encouragement, we touched base with the tourism office when we got to Port Elizabeth and found out some more about it.

One of the places the Pass allows you free access to is Addo Elephant Park. I must admit that I’m not a safari junkie and I probably wouldn’t have bothered but people in PE are really passionate about elephants. According to the SANPARKS website, it will cost R58 per adult and R29 per child (with South Africa ID) to just enter the Park so it was a no brainer really that this would be the first thing we used our pass for.

They will get you a reference number which you will quote at reception when you get there. All I can say is WOW! You HAVE to do this! And from this point on, I’m just going to let the pictures convince you.

Hi! Welcome to our family travel blog. We hope you enjoy the content we share here. We tried the nomad life in 2016 and, while we loved exploring 7 of the 9 regions in South Africa, we found it tough. We are back in Cape Town and enjoy going on mini adventures as a family. Our kids will soon be 11 and 14 years old, and they love the outdoors. Anton is a stay at home dad and helps me to home school the kids, while I hold down a job and find time to write. One day when the kids are older and have settled into their own lives, we plan to explore the rest of South Africa in a 4x4, so that we can also visit Zimbabwe, Zambia and Namibia. Contact us for unique, family-friendly content about Cape Town, most of South Africa and what we have learned from our travels so far. You are most welcome to check us out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (@tazzdiscovers) to see what we share on a day to day basis. We look forward to working with you.
