No one can never know what encounters nature has to offer. In fact, in the Kariega Game Reserve* near to Port Elizabeth more than 25 species of game and more than 200 types of birds live. Perhaps you will spot buffalos, giraffes or zebras at the waterholes while a pride of lions prowls well camouflaged through the undergrowth. The Addo Elephant Park* is totally devoted to the colossal pachyderms. Although the population was almost extinct when the park was founded in 1931, today more than 300 elephants live there.
