About Orange Elephant Backpackers and Restaurant

The Orange Elephant Backpackers is situated a short 45 minute drive from Port Elizabeth on the R335. We are about 5 minutes from the main gate of the Addo National Elephant Park and our property borders on the Addo Park.

Join us in the small but well stocked pub for a few drinks. Luckily the rooms are within crawling distance from the pub so you don't have to hold back. Meet the locals and listen to some of the folklore and have a good laugh.

Orange Elephant has much to offer in the way of activities. Visit the Addo Raptor and Reptile Rehab center, going on a game drive at a private reserve, Schotia Safari's. Ride an Elephant at the Elephant Back Safari's, go canoeing or quad biking, hiking, mountain biking and much more.
