About De Old Drift Guest Farm

Come and relax in our tranquil environment, with only sounds of nature at your doorstep...

De Old Drift Guest Farm is located a short distance from the little village of Addo in South Africa’s malaria-free Eastern Cape province and only 15 minutes drive from the renowned Addo Elephant National Park, with its big seven, and numerous other species.

De Old Drift is a working citrus farm, one of the smallest but most peaceful farms in the area. Take a slow stroll through the orchards when the trees are in blossom and the smell of citrus permeates the air, venture down to The Sundays River, only a short 200 metres walk away, where Njala, Kudu’s and Rooibok can be seen on the ridge of the mountain or relax around the pool after an exciting day of adventures and game viewing in the Elephant Park.

Start your day with a wholesome, revitalising breakfast in our thatched roof lapa, overlooking the garden and swimming pool area. Adventure, fun and games await children, with Pumba (Labrador), Timone (Jack Russel) and Mufasa (Bullmastiff) who love to make new friends and play... a farm-style wonderland for all children.

Your hosts Neels & Juanita will make sure that your stay will be one to remember.
