we booked 2 nights at the selfcatering unit for doing the addo elephant park and a safari at schotia private reserve. we even added one extra night at the old drift to relaxe a bit before doing the garden route, as we liked it that much there! breakfast was delicious and set up really lovely! the area of the farm is great to walk round and relax! the pool is small but really lovely, clean and refreshing - and there are always fresh towels ready to grab for the guests. the staff is really helpful and nice. the furniture at our room was lovely and the bbq spot just right with all the stuff set up, that could be needed for it. also we loved the dogs of the owners, which were always around, chilling in front of our door or in our garden! we would love to come back one day!!!!
- 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
