Our stay was nice but next time I will choose closer to the Addo Gate - it's 3km dirt road plus 23 km to the Addo Gate. As the surroundings are dead quiet (which is amazing) we could hear the staff giggling - one night late they were fighting - it overall they very much spoilt the bush feeling

We stayed here February 2016 and it was incredible. Such a beautiful place. Loved our quad bike drive in the morning. Everyone was so welcoming and helpful. We will definitely be visiting again! Thank you

Was very quiet which was good. End of season so availability on food etc was limited and notice was needed which we couldn't give. Very happy to help staff. Had ants in room but that wasn't too much for one night stay.

Excellent place to stay. Close to Addo Elephant park. Easy travelling from Port Elizabeth Giraffe up close... next to the chalet. Real wildlife atmosphere. No shower in Chalet.....perhaps investigate a out-side shower. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. Nice quiet evening next to the fire.

Stayed there for two nights in Jan 2017. Nice bungalows in the middle of a private game reserve. Giraffe, zebra and different antilopes can be observed, right in front of your bungalow. Staff was friendly, but not all that professional. No proper briefing to the facilities when we arrived, no key to the bungalow received. Bungalow clean, but trash-bin outside...

We stayed one night but wished it were longer. With just 3 chalets and a cottage for rent, it is an intimate and individualised game park. Our sunset game drive with Gunston showed us the range of buck and other herbivores to be seen - no predators here. Dinner was a home cooked meal in the lodge - no choice...

Giovanni and his staff are very friendly and helpful people, lodge is small, but that is why it makes intimate, you have direct contact with the staff and makes it a very nice place to stay with your family, I think for family even with young children it is a very good place to stay...To add elephant park it is...

Our family had an excellent stay at Charihandra Game Lodge. Super service, kind assistance, excellent housing facilities. Lots of game to see on guided tour at the estate and nearby Addo Elephant Park.

We had a wonderful stay at Charihandra! The accommodation was luxurious yet comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. The food we enjoyed at the restaurant was delicious. Other envenings we had a braai at our chalet. The lodge is a perfect base from which to explore the Addo area. Definitely recommend it.

Charihandra provides a peaceful setting with the typical natural setting. The chalets are comfortable and well provided. There is excellent staff on hand and the units are well maintained. Ask about Lucy the friendly giraffe.
