The Greater Addo Route stretches across the Sundays River to the Zuurberg Mountains in the Karoo and includes many activities along the way, with the Addo Elephant Park right at the heart of it. The route consists of the villages of Addo, Colchester, Canonville, Kirkwood and Paterson which each offer various adventure activities such as game drives, horse-back rides, hiking, canoeing and much more.
The Addo Elephant National Park is definitely the gem of the route and makes an incredible safari adventure. Consisting of over 600 elephants as well as the rest of the Big 5 (lion, buffalo, rhino, leopard) as well as the extended Big 7 (southern right whale and great white shark), it is well worth the visit. The valley of citrus tree in the Sundays River Valley which starts to bloom in October is also an excellent sight to see. Kirkwood is also known for its expansive 4x4 trail perfect for those craving some adventure.
The greater Addo Route makes a perfect road trip route that can be taken with family, friends, or anyone who wants to explore part of the Garden Route.
