We were wanting to explore the Addo Elephant National Park/Sunland Valley area in mid October and were looking for a comfortable guest house with good food and interesting surroundings. Boy did we find all of this and more! We arrived in appalling weather conditions (very un-seasonal apparantly) to find the drive to the accomodation wheel deep in thick glutenous mud but the owners has provided an alternative approach through the orchard which worked! Despite a large tree having been tipped over just missing guests vehicles we were made welcome and were looked after all the way. Believe the food reviews, it is as good as every one has said, beautifully presented and delicious! Kobus arranged our trips- a canoe paddle up the Sundays river which was very swollen and on the face of it intimidating. However the company we booked with, Crisscross, were excellent and made the whole experience enthralling. If you want a safari go to Schotia Private Game Reserve and book the "Tooth & Claw" game drive with almost guaranted big game. We only had a full day in the area and were more than happy with the room, food, level of comfort and experience. Thanks Kobus and Gert!!
