There are B&Bs closer to Addo than Lupus Den, but this is the only small drawback. The rooms are impeccable and there is a range... More

Our days at Lupus Den was one of the best we had during our trip through South Africa. Priscilla and Noel are excellent hosts and made us feel welcome and home from the first moments on. We stayed in the Kingfisher Room in the cottage, which is close to the main house. The location is stunning within the Citrus Farm,... More

Beautifully quiet garden, each room/suite with enough privacy. Enjoyable pool and sunbathing. Lovely breakfast done individually according to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The perfect place to unwind in a warm & friendly atmosphere, Lupus Den Country House is situated on our working citrus & cattle farm in the Sundays River Valley, approximately 25 minutes from the Addo Elephant Park. We offer comfortable to luxury accommodation in our Homestead & Garden Cottage set in a tranquil garden with large, sparkling pool, shaded by many beautiful trees. When not out exploring the local attractions, guests can enjoy the peace and quiet of a rural setting. In the evenings, on request, we serve a set 3-course candlelit, home-cooked dinner - a delicious way to end a day of exciting game-viewing. The enjoyment of our guests is a top priority so we will help where we can with bookings for safari outings to various game reserves in the vicinity or arrange the services of a private guide to the Addo Park. ... more   less
