I had never quite experienced the thrill of South Africa so acutely as when my Husband and I took a walk around the lovely Addo Afrique Estate. Being on foot and so close to marvellous Creatures such as Bush Buck, Kudu, Ostrich, Warthogs and Impala, we felt the exhilaration of the African Bush like never before. We'll have to save a close encounter with the 3 Giraffes for our next trip, we only saw them in the distance as they were the other side of the Estate.
Addo Afrique is situated with beautiful views of Addo National Park, and from our Bedroom Balcony we saw Elephant, Zebra and many Buck roaming the Open Plain in front of us. And at night, that African Sky...Wow! You've never truly seen the Milky Way until you've seen it from somewhere like this lovely Place.
The Lodge is decorated in a beautiful African Style, and is kitted out with everything you need. There is a TV complete with DSTV, although it never got switched on all the time we were there! There's just so much to enjoy of the African Night.
A Family Braai rounded the evening off beautifully for us, followed by Drinks on our Balcony, listening to the sounds of the African Bush and gazing up at that wonderful, wonderful Sky! A unique experience, we would recommend it to Everyone.
