This is an absolutely wonderful place to stay. Easy to book. The owner organised our day trips to Addo Elephant park and the gamereserve for us at very reasonable prices. We were welcomed with a delicious barbecue in this special location. Nice room. We slept like larks. Everything just turned out better than we antivipated. A beautiful stay.

Having lived in this country 4 years now, Addo Elephant National Park was on our must do list. Last minute trip and came across Addo Afrique Estate as a place we can stay for two nights. We lucked out getting the lodge to ourselves, which I would recommend for a family of 4 or more and worth the extra money...

We enjoyed our visit to Addo Afrique. I have read the negative reviews and understand them but we found the following to be positives. Firstly we liked the lodge. It is not shabby or run down as others have suggested so maybe has been upgraded. It is self catering (as well as providing breakfasts and evening meals) so presumably is...

We booked the 3-day package and thorouhly enjoyed ourselves. The animals inside the domain (giraffes, ostriches, wart hogs, etc.) were fun to watch during the small walks we took inside the property. Moses and Prisca looked after us and we were amazed by Moses' culinary skills - the food was simply excellent. We recommend Addo Afrique as comfortable 'home base'...

The room and living room are very comfortable. We had a nice evening and two game drives. One to ADDO Elephant park where we saw a lot of wild life and several elephant families around the water place. It was a sunny dry day begin december 2015. The second game drive was to nearby Addo Scotia park where we saw...

We stayed in the top room--I believe that they called it the large honeymoon suite. Beautifully decorated room. Comfortable bed. Outdoor shower. Nice view. Good location. Could see the buffalo and zebra far across the way in Addo Elephant Park. There are also animals--giraffes, ostrich--on the property itself. The service was okay, though not really to our taste.
