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

We spent 4 nights at Addo Affrique. Upon arrival, we were greeted by our absolutely brilliant host, Moses. From when we arrived, he made us feel welcome. We stayed in the Giraffe Lodge - Tranquility Suite (The master honeymoon suite) which I can only describe as Colonial Grandeur. A large, comfortable 4 poster bed, spacious luxurious room, sufficient cupboard space,... More

Out in the Eastern Cape with two other couples of French friends, we spent two nights in the Addo Afrique Estate as we visited the adjacent park. As we came through the gate we were welcomed by two giraffe and several ostriches in the estate; then we arrived at the lodge where we were welcomed by Moses, the manager of... More
