In the 'hood, Paterson as a destination

Stay in one of the Paterson accommodation venues to be close to Addo and its world-renowned elephant park, just an hour away from the best hotels in Port Elizabeth. In the foothills of the Zuurberg Mountains, bang in the middle of game reserve country, lies the little village of Paterson - named after its founder, John Paterson.

Kromrivier Road, Paterson, Greater Addo, Eastern Cape, South Africa

Directions to Addo Ndebele Palace Bush Lodge

Traveling from Port Elizabeth, take the N2 Highway towards Cradock. At one stage the road will split – stay on the N10 towards Cradock. Approximately 75km from Port Elizabeth you will find the town of Paterson on the right. Continue past Paterson in the Cradock direction for an additional 13.2km. You will find the Addo Palace and Kromrivier road signs on your left. Turn left on the gravel road and travel 14.5km. This gravel road has distance signs for Addo Palace. Travel until you reach the Addo Ndebele Palace Bush Lodge on the left. Enter the Lodge and escape into a wonderful world of peace and tranquility.

We highly recommend this route as the route through Motherwell going past the Addo Elephant National Park Main Gate via the Zuurberg mountain pass is in very poor condition.
