We were very well received by Delano & his wife. Very clean and comfortable rooms, minibar with drinks. We only had 1/2 day to spend in Addo and Delano was such an enthusiastic and friendly host for the game drive that I would recommend this to all people who want to get the most out of their visit to Addo. We had the chance to see elephants & lions from very close, a jackhal, Uddu, Buffalo, a snake, turtles,... It is great that they take along a very nice pic-nic breakfast on the game drive.
Very nice place & extremely friendly hosts; I would definately recommend this place!
- 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
