Having lived in this country 4 years now, Addo Elephant National Park was on our must do list. Last minute trip and came across Addo Afrique Estate as a place we can stay for two nights. We lucked out getting the lodge to ourselves, which I would recommend for a family of 4 or more and worth the extra money... More

We enjoyed our visit to Addo Afrique. I have read the negative reviews and understand them but we found the following to be positives. Firstly we liked the lodge. It is not shabby or run down as others have suggested so maybe has been upgraded. It is self catering (as well as providing breakfasts and evening meals) so presumably is... More

We booked the 3-day package and thorouhly enjoyed ourselves. The animals inside the domain (giraffes, ostriches, wart hogs, etc.) were fun to watch during the small walks we took inside the property. Moses and Prisca looked after us and we were amazed by Moses' culinary skills - the food was simply excellent. We recommend Addo Afrique as comfortable 'home base'... More

We have really good memories from Addo Afrique Estate. The place was wonderful. Only 3 guest rooms and we were spoiled by our butler who took care of us and prepared lovely food , both breakfast and dinner.

The room and living room are very comfortable. We had a nice evening and two game drives. One to ADDO Elephant park where we saw a lot of wild life and several elephant families around the water place. It was a sunny dry day begin december 2015. The second game drive was to nearby Addo Scotia park where we saw... More

We stayed in the top room--I believe that they called it the large honeymoon suite. Beautifully decorated room. Comfortable bed. Outdoor shower. Nice view. Good location. Could see the buffalo and zebra far across the way in Addo Elephant Park. There are also animals--giraffes, ostrich--on the property itself. The service was okay, though not really to our taste. Moses, the... More

Three bedrooms – we had the “Tranquility Suite”, which is on the first floor and is a large Bedroom with King-sized Double Bed, Bathroom (Jacuzzi), Safe and an external Shower (no-one can see you, apart from their three Giraffes that might be...

We took the 3 night package that included a scotia safari drive, an addo safari (which we were not permitted on due to the children's age) so we had an elephant back ride at Kwantu instead. The lodge is well situated from Addo- probably 10 minutes from the main gate. There are views into Addo- just across the road and... More

Well, I have waited over a year to write this review. I hoped my huge sense of disappointment would have subsided. I book my holidays by looking at reviews on this site and feel for the sake of fairness to other travellers the over riding positive reviews on this premises somewhat outweigh reality. Stayed two nights. No wifi. The place... More
