There were three of us and we stayed for three nights at Addo Afrique in two rooms. Spectacular views from the huge gorgeous rooms. The accommodation is truly wonderful! Huge bedrooms, with big bathrooms (and our had a wonderful outdoor shower!) that are fully equipped and immaculately clean. The whole place is incredibly clean and well kept! The service from...

Moses gave us a very warm welcome and allowed us to store our bags in the room even though only one had been cleaned. The house is stunning, as are the rooms. The rooms are very comfortable with huge beds! Nice sized bathrooms. The braii pit outside is one of the highlights of the 3 nights! The grounds are full... More

I had never quite experienced the thrill of South Africa so acutely as when my Husband and I took a walk around the lovely Addo Afrique Estate. Being on foot and so close to marvellous Creatures such as Bush Buck, Kudu, Ostrich, Warthogs and Impala, we felt the exhilaration of the African Bush like never before. We'll have to save... More

It has generally good facilities slightly above the general BnB standard, Property was neatly maintained The best part is the location, overlooking the area of addo elephant park and provides you complete isolation with all...

We stayed for 2 nights to explore the close by Addo Elephant National Park and were a little disappointed. The place is not manged by the owners, what may explain why it lacks all the attention to detail that we found in the many other (cheaper) BnBs we stayed at in South Africa. It has generally good facilities slightly above... More

We have just had a 2-night package and what can we say! This is such a special place nestled on the hillside overlooking part of Addo. The lodge is amazing and our room on the upper floor was just perfect (we even braved the early-morning outside shower on the balcony with only the monkeys and giraffe watching!). Moses and his...

Thanks to Moses, our wonderful host: We had a great stay and a very good time in the Addo Afrique. I would definitely recommend the 3-night-package and the Honeymoon-Suite to relax in the whirlpool after an exciting day :-) . Hope to be back soon: cu Moses...

Moses is a wonderful host and we had a perfect two nights. The rooms are very comfortable, tastefully decorated and offer a real wildlife experience with game (and monkeys) right outside. A perfect base for visiting the nearby Addo Elephant park or private game parks in the area. Moses is an excellent (and attentive) cook, and prepares a range of... More
