“African lodges in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed November 30, 2006

We have recently returned from our first visit to South Africa and we spent our very first night at the Chrislin African Lodges which are perfectly located to visit Addo Elephant Park and/or the game reserves on the Eastern Cape. The african style lodges are set in a lovely peaceful location approximately 1 mile from the main road. The accommodation is spacious, clean and comfortable - very good shower with great hot water and plenty of room to manoeuvre! We received a warm welcome and the evening meal and breakfast were both excellent. We were also lucky enough to be there on a night when a local dance troupe performed for the guests. Do try Chrislin's home produced marmalade - delicious. All in all, Chrislin Lodges are a 'different' style of accommodation and are very good value for money and would highly recommend. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - even though it was only for one night!

Chrislinbb is a super place to stay. Within 15 minutes from the main gate at Addo and less than 45 minutes from game reserves like Shamwari, Amakhala, Schotia and others. Chrislin offers superb accomodation and meals at very affordable prices. If you are in this area, Chrislin is a must. It also incudes a conference center and a wedding venue. A+
