We really enjoyed our three nights here, the mud huts are simple but comfortable with fans to keep them cool and the grounds around the place are lovely. Although you cannot get wifi in the rooms there is good reception round the swimming pool area. The restaurant is very good and as the lodge is down a fairly long roughish...

We had a comfortable two night stay here making use of Crisscross adventures who picked us up and took us in to Addo for a whole day (highly recommended). The mud huts are basic but have everything you need and we slept well. Breakfasts and dinners were pretty good. I would stay again.

Highly recommend this place for anyone wishing to visit Addo. The breakfast (eggs in particular) was immense. The accommodation itself is first class, they have created a truly authentic place for their guests. The service is brilliant and they are always available to help. And the in-house pets are awesome (particularly the 2 German Shepherds)

Perfect Accomodation for trips into Addo Park, good breakfast, clean and very friendly. The option to book the dinner is something you should´t miss. The host Madi is super helpful and happy to give you tips for the surrounding. If you´re planning to drive into Addo Park by yourself, i made very good experiences to go through the south gate...

We were looking for accommodation close to Addo and chose Chrislin because of its good reviews. We were not disappointed. My only reservation was that we arrived on a hot day, the curtains were open and the room baking in the hot summer sun, and there was no air conditioner in the room. We managed to escape to the east...

Chrislin African Lodge is unlike any other accommodation I have ever stayed, but is probably one of the best. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, and even the animals provide entertainment. Jack the German Shephard took a liking to my boyfriend and he often guarded us when we ate and slept outside our hut! The huts are fabulous to...

We stayed at Chrislin Sunset huts for three nights and enjoyed the lodge facilities. There is a small swimming pool surrounded by comfortable covered sitting areas. AC had just been installed and we were the first ones to try it out in our hut (worked perfectly). The dinners we took in the lodge; you need to order the dinner beforehand...

We had a very nice one night stay at Chrislin, and found it to be a great value. We later had lunch at nearby Africano's Country House, and although it is very lux and high-end (good lunch), we thought Chrislin had way more character to spend the night. Be aware there is a fan but no AC in the cute...

We stayed at the Chrislin for two nights whilst exploring Addo Elephant Park, which is approx 11k away - a very easy drive. Addo itself is not great, and very small. The Lodge was lovely, quite basically furnished, but with a warm welcome and the beds were very comfortable. We were there when it was very hot but the room...

We stayed one night at Chrislin during our honeymoon in August 2016. At first you think your lost in the village, then lost between the fields, and then you arrive in this wonderful place! All trees were heavy with oranges, the staff was very friendly and helpfull (and advised us wisely about their best wines!). We stayed in one personal...
