Freshly made real fruit juice, coffee and tea. Served on our deck over looking Sundays River. (Supper at a local restaurant with good quality food at excellent prices, within walking distance, braai facilities are also available.)

Location

Dungbeetle River Lodge is your entry point to the world famous Addo Elephant National Park (just 5 minutes to the new gate), and some of the finest game reserves in the Eastern Cape. The owners / managers are qualified game / nature guides, and offer guided tours into Addo Elephant National Park, to our guests.

Situated on the banks of the Sundays River, our magnificent decks have sweeping river views, a perfect backdrop to your big five game viewing. Classified as one of the cleanest rivers in the Eastern Cape, swimming is safe, canoes are offered to our guests, as is fishing tackle for the guest who wants an all round “river experience”. A ferry operates on the river, taking guests to the river mouth.

• Situated on the banks of the Sundays River, our magnificent decks have sweeping river views, a perfect backdrop to big five game viewing. Classified as one of the cleanest rivers in the Eastern Cape, swimming is safe, canoes are offered to our guests, as is fishing tackle for the guest who wants an all round “river experience”. A ferry operates on the river, taking guests to the river mouth.

• Opposite the lodge is the famous Alexandria dune fields : the longest widest coastal dunes in the southern hemisphere, full of history and interesting facts. Use the canoes to access these dunes. Guests always enjoy the dune hikes. Perhaps you want to know more about the history, geology, flora and fauna of these amazing dunes. For a nominal fee a boat can collect guests at the lodge, drop you them off at the starting point, and with a G.P.S. system and detailed instructions do a “self guided tour” to the river mouth, where they will again be picked up by boat and brought back to the lodge. (Choose your degree of difficulty). Minimum of 4 persons or be prepared to pay the minimum fee. 24 hour notice required.

• Use the lodge’s cycles or drive to where the Sundays River flows into Algoa Bay. Take a couple of drinks and watch the sun go down over the dune fields, or walk along this beautiful beach. The only people you may see are the occasional fishermen.

• Let the Lodge owners assist in organising your client’s stay: Booking onto game drives at private game reserves, elephant back safaris, sea cruises on Algoa Bay (perhaps see whales).
