We stayed for 3 nights in a self catering unit. We had a terrace, small kitchen, nice bedroom and a large bathroom. Everything was very clean and lovely. There is a pool and nice pool area and since the farm isn't that big, the pool is never crowded. The setting and atmosphere of the farm is absolutely amazing with the small paths, the lemon trees, the river and the mountain.
The owners and staff (including the dogs!) were very warm, helpful and welcoming. We had dinner at the farm restaurant one night and got a great meal with meat, grilled exactly just we wanted it, and a good wine.
We visited Addo Elephant National Park and Amakhala Game Reserve while staying at the farm. They were both great for one day excursions.
We would love to return to this farm and will recommend it to anyone who is going to this area. It's simply amazing!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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
