Where is Addo Dung Beetle Guest Farm
Home of a unique flightless dung beetle and the Big Seven animals is the
Addo Elephant National Park in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. It now has over 450 Elephant as well as Lion, Buffalo, Rhino and the reclusive Leopard. The park is set to include coastal areas and therefore adds the Southern Right Whale and Great White Shark to its portfolio.
Large or small, a range of magnificent African wildlife can be seen in this National Park in Addo, Eastern Cape, South Africa apart from the most talked about species. Long range plans will increase the varieties further and bring in other animals such as the Cheetah and Wild Dog. This entire region is a malaria free area.
Addo Dung Beetle Guest Farm is the home of a special dung beetle breeding station. Built by the owner to ensure the future of the Addo Flightless Dung Beetle, the breeding station is a delightful way to learn about this humble little creature and its amazing way of life.
A working citrus farm covering 263 hectares and with about 151 000 trees, Addo Dung Beetle Guest Farm also has Succulent Valley Bushveld, one of the 7 biomes. This area is ideal for the re-stocking of animals that historically lived here. Plans include the re-introduction of Kudu, Zebra, Nyala, Giraffe and Eland.
