Fantastic place to stay! Service was top shelf (thanks Lilly and Daniel) and rooms are upmarket modern, clean and comfortable. Pool was a huge hit. The communal dining room and recreation areas also modern and very comfortable. Highly recommended for large groups but would also come back with just family or as solo visitor.

Just loved staying at Addo African Home. They had just opened and we stayed there as a group of four (youngest 7, oldest 82). The accommodation ranges from Glamping tents, to family accommodation, to air-conditioned lodge rooms. We stayed in a family room equipped with a brilliant indoor and spacious shared kitchen - like one would get in the best...

Our hosts took care of us and gave us many information to enjoy our stay. Beds are very confortable and we enjoyed to live in this kind of room with straw on the roof. We were the last customers and despite this, we were very well welcomed. New managers are also very kind and ready to give us information to...

We had two very nice round houses and could use extra facilities in the nearby lodge. Nice staff and good breakfast. The road was nearby and sometimes a lot of noice, otherwise it was nice to see which (strange) vehicules were driving by

We stayed in a family room (for four) in the main house. Very comfortable room and nice to have the shared lounge with fireplace. Very friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast. Hope the transition to new owner will it impact quality.

Really nice place a couple of minutes from Addo Elephant Park. BBQ and kitchen available for guests. Garden and rondavell rooms are enjoyable. Can be cold during the night. Strongly recommended. There is a shop quite close.

The best about this self catering establishment is its close proximity to Addo. It is very basic and run in a very environment-friendly manner. They like to recycle. Well stocked but the building work was done on a strict low budget and unfortunately it shows. Friendly owners and clean rooms, but expect most to be low budget.

Thank you for your review. Hope you had a comfortable stay with us, unfortunately it is not easy to offer reasonable rates and build expensive buildings.... Perhaps should have stayed at the referral accommodation ;)

Conveniently located just outside of Addo, this place provides a pleasant alternative to camping. Large braai pit, kitchen, and multiple common areas. Beautiful landscape. Perfect for groups or families looking for a getaway.
