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...

Nice garden/pool. Silent. Very tasty food. Safe. Good help with logistics, safaria, experiences. Friendly straff. Clean and tidy rooms. We were 12 people, adults and children. Important to be in a safe place, to let the children run and play. We got good help with experiences, tried safaridrives, riversafari, riding. Food was delicate and tasty.
