After 5 days in Addo there is no compression to the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff here. No effort is to much to make your stay better. Game seems less than in past years but still interesting sightings. Got to see most of the...More

Brilliant wide open Karoo landscapes and stunning Karoo night skies to gaze at. Excellent accommodation and efficient management add to the experience. We spent a few days here and explored the whole park. Stunning scenery and one of the nicest of our national parks.

We stayed in one of the family cottages, perfectly appointed. The scenery is breathtaking, the park was beautifully green after some recent rains. The game viewing was very good, overall high on the list of places to return to!

The wide open spaces of the Karoo are quite dramatic with the back drop of the mountains. The park is semi arid as you can see from some of the photos , yet diverse with some lush sections. The plains are home to several types...More

Yes you can but I dont think you can do the 4x4 trails - and they are really interesting. The road is tarred or fairly good dirt road most of the way.
HI, We will be over-nighting at Mountain Zebra Park in December. We will be spending one night there on our way to Stormsriver Mouth. As I will be towing a medium sized caravan I want to enquire the condition of the road to the Park. the caravan is not an offroad caravan. Will I be able to tow the caravan on this stretch of road?

I want to spend a day there and start with the morning game drives which I think means I have to enter before the gates open. How do I do this from the UK?

If you want to do an early morning game drive it seems you will have to stay in the park. Please check with sanparks for further assistance
