The Elephant House is on the doorstep of the Addo National Park, which is sanctuary to the Big 5 (Elephant, Lion, Buffalo, and Black Rhino & Leopard) as well as the extended park that is home to the Great White shark, and the Southern Write Whale. The park was proclaimed in 1931 to protect the near threatened Elephant and today is home to over 400 of these magnificent animals.
