We spent 3-days at DRL and we booked the 3-day special which we highly recommend. We were 4 in our party - Husband and I from California, USA and my brother and nephew from Cape Town, South Africa. Etta and Derek made sure all our bookings were arranged and had a lovely meal waiting when we arrived around 8pm from Cape Town. Etta also upgraded us to the Big Five Room at no extra charge! It was very homey and welcoming and we were able to retire soon after the long drive and woke up refreshed to a lovely breakfast on the deck overlooking the Sundays River before Etta drove us through Addo for our Game Drive. We loved it! we saw so many animals. The next morning after another scrumptious breakfast we went on the ferry down the river to the sand dunes which we climbed to the top (part of the 3-day special) accompanied by Tombie (Cute!) - later that day at 2pm to Schotia where we did the safari and dinner around the lapa. The whole experience was so great and well organized and we highly recommend it when visiting Addo. You will not be sorry. My nephew hopes to return in December this year with my niece who was not able to join us on our trip due to work commitments. Mary - Oakland CA
