Proof of Identification for Addo National Park

Visitors planning to visit Addo Elephant Park during their stay with us at Chrislin African Lodge are required to show some form of identification when entering the park.

This is a message from Addo Elephant National Park management”

“With immediate effect all guests entering into AENP (Addo Elephant National Park) will have to provide proof of identity. Guests entering on open game viewers, closed vehicles and self drives all need to have either passports, identification documents or a driver’s license with them.”

Something for Everyone in Addo National Park & Surrounds

Addo Elephant Park is home to the Big 7 – lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, rhino, the Southern right whale and the great white shark. The only park in the world to house all seven species.

Various options are available to guests who would like to enjoy some time exploring the diverse wilderness area just a 14 km away from Chrislin African Lodge.  We would be happy to help you to book a guided day tour of Addo, or perhaps a mountain safari through the more remote Zuurberg section of the reserve.

If you are looking for some adventure when not visiting Addo park, consider a visit to the dynamic Alexandria sand dunes. They are a sight to behold, some reaching as much as 120m in height. Enjoy the day exploring this wild playground on a sandboard or perhaps a more sedate afternoon of bird spotting along the banks of the Sundays River from the comfort of a canoe is more your thing?

There really is something for everyone to do in the Addo region!

Be sure to bring one of the accepted forms of identification so that you can have access to the Addo Elephant National Park.
