Fort d'Acre is not just a B&B, it is a beautiful old, well kept, comfortable house in a private game reserve, managed by Lesley and Ian Thomson. Lesley gave us a hearty welcome and we felt immediately at home. Due to the season, we had the lodge to ourselves and we enjoyed the space and the luxury of the colonial... More

It was so lovely having you both to stay. We look forward to returning when you are next in South Africa - maybe next year - and enjoying another game drive with you. So nice to take people onto the reserve that really enjoy it - so a big thank you to you too! Lesley and Ian More

It has been such a pleasure to stay in the picturesque Lodge on Fort D'Acre Reserve. Well worth it! Warm people and excellent view! The rain was well experienced as well. Thank you so much Lesley and Ian!

We spent 8 nights in this lovely lodge and were extremely well looked after by Ian and Lesley who proved to be friendly, welcoming and extremely knowledgable hosts. We were lucky enough to have the lodge to ourselves and really enjoyed the space and wonderful views from our upstairs bedroom over the reserve and on to the river mouth and... More

Fort D'Acre is set in a beautiful reserve and not to far from the beach. The view from our room was amazing! We were greeted with warm smiles and felt very welcome and at home. Communication up until our visit to the lodge was always very friendly and helpful and Lesley and Ian (the managers) went out of their way... More

What excellent service. From the time of arrival to departure! The accommodation was clean, crisp linen, wonderful view and friendliness all around! The drive down to the beach was a bit windy, but what we discovered down below was absolutely worth the drive!

Unfortunately we stayed only one night in this amazing safari-themed lodge but Lamy and her team made our stay unforgettable! Even though we booked the standard double room Lamy gave us a free upgrade to one of the suite on the first floor as she had availability and said she wanted to treat us! And the view from the suite... More

We arrived after having a very lengthy drive from Port St.Johns to be greeted by Lammy who looked after us extremely well. We were the only people staying there so we were very spoilt. On our first night we ate at a local hotel and on our drive back to Fort D'Acre we had only just entered the gate when... More

This place is not cheap, but it is a place you'll remember. The lodge is beautifully situated, with most of the rooms having beautiful views towards the Great Fish River Mouth (try to avoid the twin room!). One can easlily forget that the road is so close. The beach is fabulous (but the road is tough!), and the pool is... More
