We spent 4 nights at this lovely, peaceful guest house which was truly a highlight of our 4 week trip to South Africa. Priscilla and Noel have done a remarkable job of making Lupus Den such an exceptionally comfortable and relaxing place.
We stayed in the Kingfisher Suite which provided us with everything you might expect from a guesthouse of this high quality. The suite was suprisingly large, immaculately clean, very bright and such a delight to stay in. The bed was amazing, the shower so large and the patio so nicely done with comfortable chairs and tables in a very serene setting just steps from the citrus groves. Our breakfasts were sumptuous and delicious as were the dinners that we were provided with during our stay.
Priscilla is a very caring and charming hostess and from our very first contact with her, we knew we would be staying with someone who would truly ensure that our stay and our experiences in the area would be everything we wanted them to be. She made all our arrangements for Addo Park, Schotia Game Reserve and Amakhala Game Reserve before our arrival and provided us, on arrival, with a terrific map showing us all the directions, roads and distances to these places. We found this map so helpful that we never ventured out without it.
If you want to take a tour of Addo, I would highly recommend that you ask Priscilla to book Sorita for your tour as we had the most amazing day with this lovely person.
We will always remember our stay at beautiful Lupus Den and we would,without hesitation, most highly recommend.a stay here.
