Close to Addo's Elephant park and far enough away from the hectic of daily life, you will find your rest here. Personal hospitality is their standard and the pool is a welcome treat in a hot Summer day. Camping in big tents(with good beds) or a luxury stay in the guest rooms, you will like it.

We had a great stay at our touroperators own bed and breakfast. Yvonne & Aad are very warmhearted people and our teens had so much fun with their kids, they really didn't like it to leave after 2 nights. The bed and breakfast is surrounded by a lovely garden with big trees (lots of birdlife), a nice pool and 4... More

We stayed at Magnolia as a base for our exploration of Addo park. Yvonne was very knowledgeable about the area and went out of her way to make sure we had all the information we needed. We stayed in a safari tent and had a nice restful, quiet sleep. If you're on a budget this is a great alternative to... More

We stayed in the safari tent in the garden and it was very comfortable and clean. Yvonne and Aad, the owners, are friendly and kind. The airlines lost our lugguge and besides helping us to get it back, they gave us towels, soap, toothbrush, and all that we needed. I definitely recommend it.

Excellent & knowledgeable service and just a 45 min drive from Addo Elephant National Park. Room basic but good breakfast does the job with free wi-fi for people just looking for somewhere to rest. Would definitely recommend to others.

Very friendly and helpful, they even brought us a free wine/beer whilst enjoying the pool. But for the price the tents are sturdy but facilities are quite poor and cleanliness around the outdoor kitchen area is not great.

The aim for our trip was to rest, and that we did in a safari tent in full shadow the whole day with temperatures round 35'. The tent has 2 single beds, with good mattresses and enough space left to bear our luggage We experienced that their heart was in the work at the guesthouse i.e. by the way they... More
