The lodge has 3 rooms, we've stayed at the big suite with outdoor showers and a bathtub. The view of the room is simply amazing. You see a part of the Addo Park and the sunset is beautiful! The furniture seem to be traditional African. It is a house made of wood. The location of the lodge is in the...

We stayed here for 3 days and we're so glad that we did. It's a charming little lodge with 3 guest rooms a lounge area and fantastic views out across the Addo plains. We found Moses and his wife Prieska to be the perfect hosts cooking up full breakfasts and fantastic braai for us in the evening. The room we...

I don't know why the reviews are in general positive. The pictures on the website are completely misleading. The place is a rundown joke. I would even say its at best a 2 star. The place is located between the main road and the main train line. Tranquillity??? The rooms are jumble of old furniture, no charms at all. You...

The best way to describe this guesthouse is to go stay there and see for yourself. It's nature and luxury at its best. Moses the butler was on hand 24hrs a day and only too happy to help with whatever you need. Bertie the owner was so quick to respond to any emails and also sent us a list of...

We had very delicious Barbecue Dinner and breakfast prepared by Moses. Wonderful outdoor Shower and indoor Whirlpool. Unfortunately, no wifi at all available, no TV in the...

This is an absolutely wonderful place to stay. Easy to book. The owner organised our day trips to Addo Elephant park and the gamereserve for us at very reasonable prices. We were welcomed with a delicious barbecue in this special location. Nice room. We slept like larks. Everything just turned out better than we antivipated. A beautiful stay.

Having lived in this country 4 years now, Addo Elephant National Park was on our must do list. Last minute trip and came across Addo Afrique Estate as a place we can stay for two nights. We lucked out getting the lodge to ourselves, which I would recommend for a family of 4 or more and worth the extra money...

We enjoyed our visit to Addo Afrique. I have read the negative reviews and understand them but we found the following to be positives. Firstly we liked the lodge. It is not shabby or run down as others have suggested so maybe has been upgraded. It is self catering (as well as providing breakfasts and evening meals) so presumably is...

We booked the 3-day package and thorouhly enjoyed ourselves. The animals inside the domain (giraffes, ostriches, wart hogs, etc.) were fun to watch during the small walks we took inside the property. Moses and Prisca looked after us and we were amazed by Moses' culinary skills - the food was simply excellent. We recommend Addo Afrique as comfortable 'home base'...

We have really good memories from Addo Afrique Estate. The place was wonderful. Only 3 guest rooms and we were spoiled by our butler who took care of us and prepared lovely food , both breakfast and dinner.
