They offer different types of accommodation, we had Bush Cabin 3, with a magnificent view over the valley. From the main building you walk three minutes through the bush and there is the cottage with an outdoor kitchen, outdoor shower and toilet. you just feel the freedom. The cottages themselves are self-catering so bring enough food, next shop / restaurant...

When reading recommendations of hotels I always say if 8 people give a good review and 2 don’t then the place is probably OK. I also look at the persons previous reviews to see if moaning is a trend. In this case my review is a negative one. We arrived at the Addo Dung Beetle for a 3 night stay...

We really enjoyed out 3 night stay. The welcome and the whole interaction with Rod and Magna was warm and enthusiastic, they were lovely hosts. The room was spacious, the outside shower was a great touch, especially after a long and hot day in the park. The bed was comfortable. Just be aware of lots of harmless bugs having a...

Wonderful accommodation in a beautiful and peaceful setting overlooking a valley full of citrus groves and stunning mountains as a backdrop. The staff were all lovely and the evening meal was amazing! Beautifully prepared African based dishes layed out on a wood fire inglenook fireplace, so good we did not feel the need to go elsewhere! Great wine selection too!...

We were visiting the Addo Elephant Park and this is the perfect place to stay; a few minutes drive from the park's main entrance, yet remote and tranquil. It's also a good base to explore other attractions in the region and there is plenty of expert advice and guidance offered for this. We stayed in one of the generous and...

Bushcabin 3 is about 300 footsteps away from your car so pack light. The best thing about the cabin is that it is secluded. You can get from your bed to the shower butnaked without anybody seeing it. What a freedom, and what a view! You can use the braai & there is a fridge to store your food. If...

We stayed in one of the bush cabins and a dung beetle room. Both were small but very cute, with the dung beetle room being a fun but very comfortable (and well stocked) novelty room. The outdoor shower and deck overlooking the citrus grove in the bush cabin were particularly nice! The location of the dung beetle is excellent, not...

Rod and Magda saved our holiday when our car broke down on the way from their lovely guest farm to the park. Rod is a guide extraordinaire- that kind of person who loves and lives for the bush and animals. Magda is a gracious host. We loved the chalets- well appointed, outdoor showers and beautiful views. Overall a wonderful time,...
