Zuurberg Mountain Village is a 160-year-old haven of historical delight situated high up on the Zuurberg Pass in malaria-free Addo. We are an exclusive mountain top Hotel, set in 160 hectares of indigenous vegetation with breath-taking views of the famous Addo Elephant National Park. A mere one hour’s drive from Port Elizabeth we offer our guests nature, wildlife, and tranquility in the most majestic African setting.


The 145 000-hectare Greater Addo National Park surrounds our hotel. As the third largest National Park in Southern Africa, the variety of wildlife found in the park is astounding. With 417 species of birds, 95 kinds of mammals, including the Big 5 and of course our 600 elephants that roam there, it’s an absolute treat for nature lovers. Mountain zebra, eland, kudu, bushbuck, duiker, red hartebeest, and other endemic game of the area can be encountered, as well as prolific birdlife.
