Stayed at DungBeetle river lodge for a couple of nights as a base to explore the Addo area.
The lodge itself is very well presented with lovely feature rooms and nice views out onto the Sundays river. Rooms and public areas were always spotless and the breakfast was delicious, especially the home made bread (fresh mushrooms instead of tinned would have made it even better).
When we left early on our day of departure we were even given breakfast supplies for our journey, staff couldn't do enough to help and give advice. Even though Derek & Etta weren't there, everything ran perfectly.
Grunters bar 200m down the road is fine for a bite to eat and a drink at very reasonable prices.
If in the area, give this place a try.
