The malaria free Addo and Addo Elephant National Park, located in the Eastern Cape of South Africa is the perfect holiday destination and ideal for both adventure enthusiasts and nature lovers. Addo lies in the beautiful Sundays River Valley, which stretches from the Indian Ocean to the Zuurberg Mountains. The Sundays River Valley is home to the famous Addo elephants, as well as the famous Addo Citrus. The Greater Addo area is world renowned for its citrus fruit production and is South Africa's largest producer of lemons. The area is alive with citrus farms, wonderful Addo Roses and an abundance of animal and bird life. Found deep in the shadow of dense Addo Valley Bushveld, the Addo Elephant Park was proclaimed in the 1930's when only 11 elephants remained. Today it is a finely tuned Eco-system which is sanctuary to over 500 elephants, buffalo, black rhino, lion, leopard, hyena, antelope, small carnivores, over 480 bird species as well as the endangered flightless dung beetle, found almost exclusively in Addo. The Zuurberg Mountains, falling within the park, are home to interesting fauna and flora including three rare cycad and two yellowwood species. Plans to extend the current 185 000 ha Addo Elephant National Park into a 400 000 ha "Greater Addo Park" have been completed with the park having more than doubled in size over the past six years.
