Reviewed March 21, 2013

We found the area very quiet and peaceful. The security and dogs made us comfortable enough to sleep with an open door. The chalet was spotless and had everything we needed except a TV and the owners were exceedingly helpful and friendly. Really felt at home there. Des and Gayle March 2013

During our vacations we spent two unforgettable days at De Old Drift Guest Farm around 15 km outside the Addo National Park. The Guest Farm is located directly at the R335 a few km's before the Addo village.
The area is really tranquil and perfect for spending a few relaxing days there. Our Family Suite was extremely comfortable with a huge Kingsize-Bed, a small kitchenette with fridge and a cushy couch.
The breakfast was absolutely sufficient with different cereals, cutted fruits and some bread with marmelade. Additionally you can order some eggs with bacon, mushrooms and tomatoes. It's really enough for everybody and perfect for a great start in the day.
Finally I would like to thank the manager, Steffi, for her helpful nature and her lovely grin ;) Hope to see you soon again.
Best wishes from Germany to your staff and to Thimone, Phumba and Mufasa!! :)

Room Tip: I really can recommend the Family Suites for couples, they are very comfortable and spacious

Charming setting in a citrus farm. Friendly staff and lovely breakfast. Ideally situated for exploring region, particularly Addo Elephant Park. Nicely furnished rooms, clean and good size. Staff was very helpful, extended our stay for 1 night without much problem.

We had a great stay at De Old Drift Guest Farm, where we were warmly welcomed by Steffi and the other staff. Fortunately we had the opportunity to stay one night more than we had booked for. We wish we'd had more time to spend at your place, for example for a swim in the pool. Thank you very much for your help with booking of the safari trip in the AEP and a dinner in a restaurant in the Addo village, and most notably for even mailing us some goods we left behind!

It was a pleasure staying again at this B&B, our 3rd time already. Its location is close to the Addo Elephant park and other game reserves. Welcomed this time by Steffi who manages this B&B together with Neels and Juanita, who are the owners. We had a wonderful stay, met some very nice people and evening meals are on request nowadays. Occasionally they arrange a "braai". Nearby there is a good restaurant (Lenmore). The rooms are spacious and well equiped, new family rooms are available. Various gamedrives can be arranged via Steffi, Neels or Juanita and we stayed an extra day and enjoyed an excellent gamedrive with Schotia Safari's, we can recommend this! Of course the elephant park is around the corner and you can drive with your own car in this park We advise to check the website of De Old Drift where we found all the necessary info there. Otherwise an email will solve your questions. We guaranty that Steffi and her staff make your stay a very pleasant one. We'll be back in the (near) future!

We enjoyed our stay very much and wished we could have stayed longer. Our 2 bed-roomed cottage was very clean with plenty of room. Breakfast was excellent and served in the delightful rondavel type building by the pool. We enjoyed the walk around the well kept gardens and down to the river and were accompanied by the owners friendly dogs who were adorable.
Steffi was very friendly and most helpful and booked us a wonderful trip to Addo elephant park and Schotia Safari reserve with a fantastic guide called Pete- a must do.

We have enjoyed our stay in the De Old Drift Guest Farm as we have been warmly welcomed by Steffi and staff working there! We stayed in the self Catering unit which was very clean and quite big and very well equipped as well. There is even a big bbq facility! It was close to the Addo Elephant park but a car is required as it is set in a quiet nature place and the next village is a few km away. If we ever go back to Addo we will definately stay there again!

COME AND RELAX IN OUR TRANQUIL ENVIRONMENT, WITH ONLY SOUNDS OF NATURE AT YOUR DOORSTEP... De Old Drift Guest Farm, a short distance from the little village of Addo in South Africa’s malaria-free Eastern Cape province and only 15min drive from the renowned Addo Elephant National Park, with its big Seven, and numerous other species. De Old Drift is a working citrus farm, one of the smallest but most peaceful farms in the area. Take a tour through the orchards and venture down to The Sundays river, only a short 2km away, where Njala, Kudu’s and Rooibok can be seen on the ridge of the mountain. Relax around the pool after a long day at the Elephant Park, or take a walk through the garden and orchards, when the trees are in blossom, the smell of citrus permeates the air. Enjoy our refreshing breakfast in our thatched roof lapa overlooking the garden and swimming pool area. Adventure, fun and games await children, where Pumba (Labrador), Timone (Jack Russel) and Mufasa (Bullmastiff) love to make new friends and play... a little paradise for all children.
