About The Colonial On Arundel

The Colonial on Arundel is a magnificent old colonial home, dating back to the 1930s, set in the heart of the Sundays River Valley, at Sunlands, near Addo in the Eastern Cape and owned by your hosts, Molly and Conor O’Hagan Ward.

Sunlands lies in a world famous citrus producing part of South Africa and Arundel is the name of the working farm on which The Colonial is situated. Wander through the orchards of oranges and lemons at your leisure and encounter the peace and tranquility of the abundant bird-life on the Coerney River, which borders the property.

In a malaria free area, it is just 15kms. from the Addo Elephant Park, and many other private game reserves which offer you the Big Five right on your doorstep.

Conor who is a qualified and experienced guide, and passionately interested in the South African history pertaining to this part of the Eastern Cape, can organise private drives into the Addo Elephant Park in the afternoons, in an air-conditioned Landrover TD5 Defender. Please request his rates, which include all entrance and conservation fees, as well as drinks and snacks.

The Zuurberg Mountains, also just 15kms from your doorstep, and which can be seen in the distance, offer hiking and horse trails, and elephant back safaris, can be booked. During the month of October, the valley is home to the famous Addo Rose Day.
