Addo Trip

One morning in mid July, our Suzuki Jimny packed to the brim with assorted camping gear, map in hand and with just enough savings, Imar and I departed on a week-long camping trip to Addo Elephant National Park in the Eastern Cape. We had been dying to go camping for a while, and despite our recent streak of bad-weather-luck, we decided to take the risk and go camping anyway.

En route to Addo, we stayed overnight at the ever-picturesque Ebb and Flow rest camp at Wilderness National Park. The following day we traveled via Jeffrey’s Bay to see if we could catch a glimpse of the ASP J-Bay Open.

We had amazing weather in Addo with temperatures reaching 28 degrees – a welcome break from the cold Cape of Storms. We saw so much and felt very blessed. We had the best site in the camp, complete with a big tree and surrounded by a sheltering Spekboom hedge. On the way back, we stayed over in Wilderness again where we managed to snap a picture of the colourful little Malachite Kingfisher.
