We stayed at Barefoot for 3 nights and it was so special! We stayed at Fynbos and although it was quite a way to walk in the 35 to 40 degree heat it was worth every drop of sweat. The view is beautiful with the resident elephants in clear view from our " tent" and lots of game to see through the binoculars. Everything was very clean and staff friendly. Had a lovely game drive as well. Worth every cent!

This was a wonderful stay. We loved the tent lodges and the area itself. At the beginning we were a bit shocked that they offer Elephant rides, as in Europe this is out of favor and animal welfare activists say this is a cruelty to animals. But at the lodge we've learned the opposite! The Elephants are in a good mood and treated very well! Apart from that the lodge is a hidden gem. Hopefully they keep on going like it is!

I could not ask for a better birthday, this weekend was awesome. The staff and everyone made me and my mother feel so at home, the view we had was absolutely phenomenal, the elephants were big and friendly giants (that we miss dearly) and the food was delicious!! It is so strange being back in Port Elizabeth, You hear the noises and wish to be back there with peace and quiet. The special places i miss are also the veranda and jacuzzi.I will definitely come visit again, hope it will be as soon as I wish! Thank you for your hospitality.

Absolutely fantastic 3 days spent in this most beautiful of places. Got to ride and interact with elephants ,which has certainly been on our wish list. All the staff were very friendly, welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Food was lovely and plenty of it. The lodges were amazing especially the jacuzzi and verandas, with fantastic views of the surrounding hills. Even the squabbling monkeys who woke us up in the early hours, didn't dampen the enjoyment. If we get the chance we will definitely going back.

We would like to thank all the staff members who made it possible for us to have the most wonderful experience of a lifetime on Saturday, 20 September 2008. Your enthusiasm and love for the elephants and kindness will always be remembered and we have now ticked off “interacting with elephants” which we thought was a far away dream, from our bucket list and thank you for making it so special. Of course a special thank you to the gentle giants is also in order.
