About Fort D' Acre Reserve
Fort D' Acre Reserve offers luxury Bed & Breakfast accommodation on the Sunshine Coast of South Africas Eastern Cape, uniquely situated adjacent to the Gary Player designed Fish River Sun Golf Course. Enjoy a well-deserved holiday or stopover at this luxurious, secure, private coastal game reserve situated between Port Elizabeth and East London.
Fort D Acre is an exclusive thatched safari lodge situated at the mouth of the Great Fish River, 25km from Port Alfred. Its unique positioning, with sweeping views of bush and coastline, invites the visitor to explore contrasting habitats for grassland bushveld, wild seaside and riverine forest. Game drives into the reserve offer opportunities to view 19 different species including Cape buffalo and giraffe.
Our stylish lodge is elegantly furnished capturing the spirit of Africa. The comfortable lounge with open fires and indoor dining area offers a cosy alternative in the evening. The 4 en-suite bedrooms (three double rooms and one twin room) all have sweeping views. Relax in the beautiful and peaceful indigenous gardens with huge Coral trees, large swimming pool and braai area. The lodge offers DSTV, DVD player and WiFi.
A wonderful new development is the oceanside lapa, overlooking the beach it is a very special place for a picnic lunch or family barbecue. In the evening relax with a drink while the sun sets and a million stars sparkle in the southern sky. By day watch dolphins and whales and be lulled by the sound of waves washing the white sand.
