Although I found the camp quite large, there are a few options as far as accommodation go. we stayed in a cottage overlooking the park. It was not on the waterhole but the view of an open area of the park in front of the cottage was good. The reception staff were helpful and friendly, the shop well stocked with... More

We have stayed in the Kruger National Park many times and in various rest camps or bushveld camps and this one in Addo is our favourite. It is a smallish camp but superbly run. All of the staff - every single one we met - were helpful and friendly. The cottage was wonderful and modern and clean. The verandah was... More

We stayed in a two person cottage at Addo – it was the best accommodation of the rest camps we’ve stayed at in the national parks. Instead of a rondavel, it was a spacious Cape Dutch style cottage, with a large braai area and patio. Nicely secluded from the surrounding cottages. For photos, check out our blog post about Addo:...

We stayed in the Rondavels for 2 nights and thought it was a great place to stay and relax. I do not know the chales looked, but would def say that the rondavels are better located, being close to the water hole as well as the restaurant. Simply put, I would recommend staying in a rondavel for anyone who is... More

We were only there for two nights, but it was a very comfortable and well-maintained place. We drove there so that we could explore the park on our own which was very easy with the map provided. The night tour was also worth the money. The room itself was great for a good night's sleep, but we could not stand... More

We settled in here a few months for a few nights. Loved the place, just so peaceful and we loved that we cooked our food and were self sufficient. Friendly staff, cabin sheets and other things, etc. were a little dated and old but otherwise very nice.

As recommended by Mom, we entered Addo Elephant Park from the south, driving slowly north to check in. VERY friendly Lee-Marque, who had been extremely helpful previously on the telephone, checked us in to our Chalet # 27. The units are being revamped and our bathroom was new and clean. Unfortunately the tops of the cupboards (where we stored our... More

They were sort of clean, but our sheets had huge holes in them and the bathroom had rotted out and felt like you were going to fall through the floor. Staff were friendly and helpful. Restaurant was nice, I would avoid the game drives but the horse back ride was EXCELLENT and worth the money. Our guide was funny and... More

This was our second visit to Addo. We were not sure what to expect after a 12 years absence, but we were pleasantly surprised. We stayed in one of the rondavels overlooking the waterhole. Although the chalets may offer better quality accommodation, the positioning of the rondavels is far superior. Addo offers excellent opportunity for game viewing in a scenic... More
