Make the MOST of Addo - Nature rewards the prepared mind

The hidden treasures at Addo Elephant National Park can pass you by if you haven’t prepared to receive them. But if you plan your self-drive tour beforehand and take time to discover what awaits you, you'll be richly rewarded!

Less than an hour’s drive from Coral Tree Guest House, Addo is so much more than 600 elephants in an African Big Sky setting, and we want to help you have the full experience and make it a truly memorable one...

So before you head out there, it’s our great pleasure to offer our guests some eye-opening books and maps as 'Addo homework'!
