Situated just 3km from the southern gate of the famous Eastern Cape, Addo Elephant Park, the villages of Colchester / Cannonville lie on the banks of the Eastern Cape, Sundays River, nestling between magnificent sand dunes known as the Alexandria Dunefields. Teeming with wildlife such as bushbuck, bush pig, meercat and mongoose, these imposing, ancient Eastern Cape sand dunes reach incredible heights of 140m, and have stood tall for about 10 000 years, resting upon even older dunes dating back 100 000 years.
