The Eastern Cape region of South Africa is the traditional homeland of the Xhosa people. The most notable of these is the iconic peacemaker and Nobel Prize winner, Nelson Mandela. Mr. Mandela is from an area mentioned in his book called Qunu, which is in the area called the Transkei. Throughout this region, elephants were once prevalent all along the coastal belt. However, now on two pockets exist for their survival. The greatest experience is getting to see these animals in numbers in their family-type groupings: mothers and calves and the great big bulls.
The only place in the Eastern Cape which is entirely malaria-free, where you can enjoy the beauty of these magnificent animals, is Addo Elephant Park. The Addo Elephant Park is about a 1-hour drive from the major centre Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape region of South Africa. The region boasts many attractions, but why not take in the elephants while you are roaming about the homeland of Nelson Mandela. And like the great 'Madiba' (Nelson Mandela), these animals will draw you into the peaceful heart of Africa!
