Patterson is a small town in the Greater Addo area of the Eastern Cape province of South Africa.  The almost forgotten town of Paterson is situated close to the North East border of the Addo Elephant National Park adjacent to the N10 main road which links the Greater Addo Route to the Free State. The village was laid out in 1879 at Sand Flats railway station, which had been reached by the Midland System of the Cape Government Railways on 1 April 1876.   The new town was named after John Paterson (1822–1880), member of Parliament and founder of the Eastern Province Herald and of the Grey Institute for Boys, who established the town.

Patterson is centrally situated between 8 of the most renowned and luxurious private game reserves in the Eastern Cape. The view from the Olifantskop Pass, just north of the town, seems to last forever and will linger in the memory of any traveller.
