In Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth), along the Algoa Bay Whale Heritage Site and in the Eastern Cape’s malaria-free Addo region, South Africa.
Our day begins with a Whale, Dolphin, and Penguin Island Cruise searching for the seasonal Southern Right Whales and Great White Sharks, just two of our marine members who are part of the BIG 7. Circumnavigating St. Croix Island and its African Penguin colony, we return to the harbour for a tasty light lunch. We drive to the malaria-free Addo Elephant National Park to explore and observe the land-based members of the BIG 5. Among the many fascinating animals, birds, and reptile species in Addo are lions, buffalo, leopards, black rhinos, and over 700 free-roaming African elephants. Your guide will do his best to help you search for and spot as many of these magnificent land animals as possible.
Pick-up at 7:30 a.m. at your Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth) residence (rates for the other centres on request). Travel to the harbour where we board the catamaran for an exhilarating Marine Safari into the protected waters of Algoa Bay in search of Dolphins, Seals, Sharks, and the seasonal Humpback and Southern Right Whales. We will be circumnavigating St. Croix Island and its African Penguin colony.
We return to the harbour and a local restaurant for a light lunch. We then head out to the malaria-free Addo Elephant National Park for an exhilarating game drive in search of the more conventional members of the BIG 5.
After entering the park, we will immediately begin our game drive adventure to look for the many different types of wildlife hiding in the thickets and roaming on the broad plains. Your Addo guide will teach you about their environment and the reserve's more than 700 famous African Elephants. Buffalo, lions, leopards, zebras, warthogs, and numerous antelope species are among the animals to keep an eye out for. The park has a rich and diverse bird and reptile population that inhabit this spacious and third-largest National Park in South Africa.
After a long and exciting day of discovering the Big 7, we will drop you off at your residence in Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth).
*Please note that this combined tour is weather dependent.
The cruise operator cannot guarantee animal sightings on any cruise. The cruise operator offers guests the opportunity to view wild animals which will move around at their own will and therefore we cannot be held responsible for the movements of these animals. Guests who are taken to St Croix are guaranteed to see African penguins, and therefore no refund will be given if other marine animals are not spotted. If absolutely no animals are sighted compensation, in the form of a free ticket for the next boat trip, may be given at the discretion of the skipper.
