Die 5-Sterne Lodge mit eigenem Tierbestand (Giraffen, Vogelsträusse, Kudu´s etc.) liegt direkt neben dem Addo Elephant Park und thront auf einem Hügel mit genialer Aussicht auf die Umgebung. Die Lodge besteht aus zwei Gebäuden, der Giraffe und der Elephant Lodge und wir waren in der Giraffe Lodge untergebracht. Diese besteht aus einem riesigen Wohnzimmer mit offener Küche zum Selbstversorgen. Die Zimmer sind alle sehr hell, gemütlich und in afrikanischem Stil eingerichtet. Teilweise verfügen diese auch über einer Aussendusche , sodass man beim Duschen die Tiere beobachten kann oder vielleicht auch umgekehrt :). Zwischen den Safaris kann man sich bei beiden Lodges am Pool erholen und die Aussicht auf Tiere und Busch genießen. Schon bei der Ankunft wurden wir von Moses, dem Butler, mit einem warmen Lächeln begrüßt. Während des ganzen Aufenthaltes hat uns Moses jeden Wunsch von den Augen abgelesen und uns mit seinem Charme und seiner Natürlichkeit verwöhnt. Es besteht in der Lodge die Möglichkeit, dass man selber kocht oder man kann alles Moses überlassen, was wir empfehlen würden . Denn nach unserer Rückkehr von der Safari knisterte schon das Holz im Lagerfeuer und wir wurden mit einem leckeren braai (Grillabend) und typisch afrikanischen Beilagen belohnt. Auf Wunsch bereitet Moses auch das Frühstück zu. Wir haben den kompletten Service in Anspruch genommen und einen wunderschönen Abend im Boma (typisch afrikanisch eingezäunter Platz mit Lagerfeuer) verbracht. Das Frühstück haben wir auf der Terrasse eingenommen und während wir noch unter der Dusche standen, stieg schon der Geruch von Kaffee und Speck mit Eiern hoch. Dieses hat Moses für uns auf Wunsch pünktlich zubereitet, damit wir zeitig auf Morgensafari gehen konnten. Wir können die Lodge wirklich empfehlen, auch wenn es ein paar Kilometer außerhalb des Parks liegt - es lohnt sich auf Fälle!!

We stayed in the elephant lodge for 3 nights, what is there to say. The lodge was amazing, the rooms were beautiful and we all had our own bathrooms. The lounge and kitchen was very comfortable. We felt at home straight away. Our food we ordered arrived and Gladys and Themba were so friendly and lovely and couldn't do enough for us that it felt like we had made some friends. The braais were lovely at night in the fire pit, so quiet except for all the animals!! We had a disappointment with our first safari at Addo Elephant Park being double booked but Themba took us for a walk around the grounds and we found the giraffes, which was a once in a lifetime and there was only us we are very thankful. Themba came with us to our elephant safaris (a must but you need a 4x4 for the road!) It was lovely waking up to the view and the pool was beautiful and the spot where I got engaged! Addo Afrique will always hold a place in my heart not just for this but because of how breathtaking it was and I hope to return there as soon as I can. The price is reasonable, but you get so much more.
