The accomodation is more basic but totally sufficient if you stay for a few nights. The spacious chalet had a well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. They could renovate the bathrooms soon, but they are 100% clean. The camp has a little shop and a mediocre restaurant, but we would recommend to do your own barbecue (all chalets have barbecue...

We have recently returned from a trip to South Africa where we stayed in Addo for one night in the forest huts. This was excellent value for 8 people. We had wanted a family chalet but only the forest huts, with a shared kitchen, were available. And what a gem they were! It's like glamping. All bedding and towels provided.... More

Good restcamp, with a store and restaurant (food is okay, not great). Book a rondavel overlooking the floodlit waterhole: we saw elephants from the comfort of our porch. We did a self-drive, so can't comment on the guided game-drives. The chances of seeing all the Big Five in Addo are second to none, but it is still a beautiful park... More

The chalet was beautiful and well laid out. You may need a car to get to the restuarant. Kitchen facilities good if self catering. The food shop was well stocked with food stuffs as well as gifts, books, clothes. Planned trips can be arranged and game drives etc.

This review is on the accommodation which needs a facelift but you've got to remember it's run by the government so change moves slowly. We had a Rondavel for 1 night (all that was available with only 2 months notice in prime season). This Rondavel is described as overlooking a floodlit watering hole, well the Rondavels were numbed 1-6 and... More

We spent 5 nights camping at the main rest camp at Addo. The camping sites are nice, although they have no view which is a bit of a shame. Each site has a plug-point for electricity and a braai (barbecue). The ablution facilities are very well maintained, as is the communal kitchen. The campsite has a petrol station, shop, swimming...

Stayed in a Forest Chalet for one night in October 2014. Had a very nice day and a half in the park, and found everything about the accommodation very good. The check in process was done efficiently and by very friendly staff and the Chalet was spotlessly clean and equipped with all we needed. The setting is perfect. The Park... More

Convenient Internet booking, reasonable price. Check-in at reception was swift and professional. The restaurant is excellent, local food supply and the best we have experienced in SANPARK locations. The park (game drive) is mediocre, but worth doing it for 1 day.

We stayed in one of the cottages which we found clean and well equiped . It is an excellent well run camp and we would recommend Addo. You are free to visit the park at any time between 6 am and 6 pm, we also booked a night drive. The elephants were wonderful, we also saw plenty of different animals... More
