Happy Lands Safaris

Exclusively for our guests only, Happy Lands offers private full day safaris to the Addo Elephant National Park from the vantage of our own open-air high clearance safari jeep. Led by Emmanuel – our highly experienced guide with intimate knowledge of the park – these safaris provide guests with the best opportunity of seeing the ‘Big Five’ in Addo. Allowing a full day to explore the Addo Park means that there is time enough to explore the North and South sections of the park - both beautiful but uniquely different – and increases the likelihood of seeing all the wildlife that Addo has to offer. Our safaris also include a traditional South African lunchtime Braai (barbeque) in the African bushveld.
