I was very impressed by the beautiful rooms, bathrooms and entertainment area. Especially loved the outside shower! We had a good workshop in the Chapel and nice Master Chef experience around the fires.

Close to PE (40km) and with heaps of activities in the surrounding area, Africanos is a fantastic option in the Addo area. We were a party of 10 that booked for the Adam Tas show on a Friday evening...which included accommodation and meals. Everything is really pristine...the rooms are very well appointed and upmarket. The bathroom is palacial and sports...

A must stay if you are visiting the Addo Elephant Park or if you simply need a tranquil breakaway, fabulous luxurious rooms friendly staff and great food. Stunning signature deserts for the connoisseur sweet tooth and the best Sushi ever! I loved the outdoor shower and can highly recommend this venue.

We went for lunch and decided to return that night for dinner also. The menu had a good variety and the food was good. The staff were very welcoming and they had lots to keep our 2 small children entertained. They brought the children's food out first and it allowed us to eat our dinner while the children played. We...

I was there with my family from overseas. The ostrich steak roll I ordered medium rare was awful, cold, and I sent it back. When it was returned I noted it had been somehow heated so was well-done. The restaurant manager noted that the chef had said it was cold because of the cucumber sauce (I didn't feel that but...

We took a chance on the location of this hotel but it couldn't have been better placed to visit the Addo national park. We were also happy to find that the hotel could arrange an all day game drive for us with Crisscross adventures. The room was beautiful with the biggest shower I have ever seen as well as an...

Dear RobertC142015, Thank you for taking time to review our hotel. The showers always make a great impression! The outdoor shower is extremely nice in the summer months.

It was a lovely lodge with a magnificent room. The star-lights above the bed were delightful for my daughter. There was however a wedding being held at the venue on that day. Just a thought -perhaps you could inform guests before they make a booking if the venue is being used for a function. Although there was not a lot...

Good service, good food and value. It's an easy drive from Port Elizabeth and close to Addo Elephant National Park. Africanos has an extensive menu and we all found something (including vegetarian options).
