About Bydand B&B
Bydand B&B is situated on a working citrus farm in the heart of the beautiful Sundays River Valley close to the famous Addo Elephant National Park which is home to over 400 African elephants and many other wild animal species, including lion.
Margaret, Colin and John welcome you to Bydand B&B. We pride ourselves on personal service to ensure that your stay is a memorable one.
Our three spacious, tastefully decorated, double en-suite rooms, overlook the orchards. Each has its own private entrance and opens onto a sunny deck. All are air-conditioned and have ceiling fans. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided.
Two large en-suite family units, with all of the above facilities, sleep mom and dad and up to three children comfortably.
A delicious, full breakfast is served in the dining-room and it is here, round the table, where many stories are swapped and tips and advice given. Dinner is available at any of the nearby restaurants.
What to do while at Bydand
A sparkling swimming pool, a stones throw from the bedroom doors, is there for your enjoyment. Laze beside it on a pool lounger, or cool off with a refreshing swim after a day of sightseeing or game viewing. Guests are free to walk about on the farm as they wish. Pick your own juicy export quality oranges in season!
Feeling more adventurous! Tour the farm on a quad-bike. Enjoy the blossom in spring time. Watch the pickers at work during harvest time. Splash through the river - prepare to get wet!
Attractions & Activities
Tour the Sundays River Citrus Company’s packhouse during the picking season and see how the fruit is washed, waxed, sorted and packed for export. The Addo Animal Rehabilitation Centre is close by and well worth a visit.
Paddle down the Sundays River in a canoe and marvel at the abundant birdlife! Visit one of the other nearby Game Parks such as Schotia Safaris, where you will enjoy a typical South African meal served in their boma, or Amakhala. Both are unique and offer wonderful day trips.
Ride amongst the animals in the Elephant Park on horseback. Drive to the Zuurberg Mountains (+-25km), and ride on an elephant. Visit the Daniell Cheetah Project and meet Africa’s big cats, lion, leopard and cheetah and also the smaller species such as servals and caracals . You can even touch the tame cheetahs!
Port Elizabeth, the closest city to Addo (+-70km), has some of the finest beaches in South Africa as well as many places of interest to visit.
