We're a film crew from Germany and had the pleasure to spend a couple of nights with Eli - who took such good care of us! The rooms are cosy, spacious and make you feel like home, Eli's breakfast was delicious and we were not treated like guest, but like friends. If you ever go to Alicedale, that's the place... More

Thank you Maja and Team - and congratulations on the documentary you produced during your stay with us show-casing this beautiful part of the world and the wonders of MOHAIR!! Thanks also for the link http://www.arte.tv/guide/de/051485-016/360-geo-reportage. Not sure how we will be able to view and enjoy, but if all else fails, perhaps we could organise a copy on DVD?...

I don't think I will ever stay somewhere like this again. Staying at Addo Reach with John and Eli will be a memory that stays with me forever, I cannot put into words how welcome they made us feel and this is a trait throughout the town, we met a number of people while there, everyone was a pleasure too...

Staying with John and Eli was a pleasure! For the time we were there we felt incredibly welcomed by both of them and made our stay so much better. We were recommended to visit Addo elephant reserve and we travelled there with John. Every single location he chose to visit in the reserve was excellent and the picnic prepared for... More

Thanks much Conah - and what a pleasure it was to have you guys with us. Regrettably the 12 golf balls you lost during your game with John have never been recovered but we keep an eye out for them!! Have managed to lose the pics we had with you climbing the rock face with Paul Kuhne, so if you... More

I stayed with John and Eli in August this year, was an amazing stay and we managed to do so much, John and Eli are so informative and gave us a list of things to do. They recommended going to Addo elephant reserve and told us the best places to see wildlife. Our trip to addo was a fantastic one... More

If I were a writer I think this would be my retreat, quiet with no hustle and bustle. We opted for the little self catering unit at Addo Reach called Heins Cottage and what an absolute gem. John and Eli, our hosts, have managed to create an escape which lives up to anything you may wish for, solitude if you... More

This has to be one of the most beautiful places to stay for peace and tranquility. Our hosts John and Eli, could not do enough to make our stay more comfortable. Addo Elephant Park is easily within reach on a tar road all the way, golf is available on a challenging course at the Bushmans Sands Hotel. To be honest... More

We were apparently the first people to camp here ever, but you wouldn't have known it. Eli and John are simply the most welcoming and lovely people you could ever hope to meet.

We stayed with Eli and John in March, and were treated to fantastic hospitality with lovely accommodation. We have been visiting Alicedale for the past 10 years - normally staying at Bushman Sands Hotel, but Addo Reach is a much more friendly and more comfortable. We didn't want to leave. Eli and John are the perfect hosts and lovely people.

My boyfriend, Peter and I, stayed at Addo Reach from 24 to 26 Feb 2014, so that we could visit the Addo Elephant Park.

Whilst travelling in South Africa last month with a friend I was lucky enough to stay in Alicedale at Eli & Johns place. Lucky for me because my friend had stayed there before and knew we would be in good hands - however nothing had prepared me for the level of care and hospitality which I was to experience. The...
