5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

As we booked one night in the old drift guest farm, we got contacted directly and they send us a list of things to do and tours we could book at Addo and Scotia. So we decided to book the tour directly with them that was very comfortable to us.
As we arrived we found our cottage freshly cleaned, with a large bathroom and a kitchen. The cottage itself is app. 50m away from the main house and pool. It was really quiet and we enjoined the beautiful surroundings. The place where you got served breakfast and the breakfast itself were also really great. We enjoyed our stay there, it's worth to spend more than one night at de old drift!

What joy to spend time at this beautiful facility. The rooms were great (the shower way above standard), staff, food and general environment excellent and to conclude - we left with a "this must be repeated" because it was simply to good to do only once.

Room Tip: Be aware of the variety that's available - guest house, self-catering, etc.

We arrived on Sunday and we were straight away welcomed into the De Old Drift family, after a lazy afternoon we had a wonderful supper with one of the finest steaks on offer with great wine. The next morning a sumptuous breakfast awaited us before we embarked on a day of game drives in Addo and surrounds. It is an ideal base to explore this area and the staff led by Biancke the manager are extremely helpful. We loved the three friendly dogs Pumba, Timone and Mustafa. A real home from home, could not recommend it more. Thanks a Million….

Very friendly staff and and a beautiful garden. The rooms are really good. The Old Drift is a perfect place for trips the Addo Elephant Park and other private parks in the surrounding. There are 3 very friendly dogs.

we had a wonderfull stay in the cottage of De old Drift Guest House. Our son liked the beautifull cottage with nice rooms and very well decorated. The personnel was welcoming friendly and helpful. The pool was perfect and clean, the garden really beautifull and done with a lot of love. So that you can feel in small paradise for some days. And a good start to different game drives.
Thank you!!!

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. Your hosts Neels, Juanita and Steffi, will make sure that your stay will be one to remember. ... more   less
