About Addo Gateway Lodge

The 3 star graded Addo Gateway Lodge is ideally situated close to all major game parks, in a small village, Cannonville, near Addo, nestled along the banks of the beautiful Sundays River in the Colchester area.

Surrounded by a beautiful and tranquil garden, just off the N2, 35kms East of Port Elizabeth, Addo Gateway Lodge is only 4 km from the new South entrance of the Addo Elephant National Park (Camp Matyholweni) and is an ideal stop over for anyone who would like to visit the this park and other game reserves in the vicinity.


We offer Bed & Breakfast accommodation. All rooms have their own en suite shower / toilet and bathroom facilities, own entrance, TV, fan, fridge, microwave, heater, coffee / tea facilities

The lodge also has a fully equipped kitchen for self catering, an indoor braai in the thatched lapa, a lounge, dining room as well as an outside braai area, with exit to a huge open deck, overlooking the river and magnificent dunes across the road where a big public open space, gives you the tranquillity you need to wind down, whilst enjoying a glass of wine on the deck.

We also offer a lovely cottage behind the lodge with upmarket facilities and this is fully equipped with two bedrooms, full bathroom, lounge, kitchenette and an undercover braai adjacent to the cottage rooms. The main bedroom has a queen and single bed and the second bedroom a double bed plus double bunk. The cottage can sleep a total from 3 to 7 comfortably.


A scrumptious full farmhouse breakfast will be served which includes cereals, pancakes / muffins, fruit, yoghurt, coffee / juice / tea, fried / scrambled / boiled egg, mince / sausage / viennas, bacon, fried onions and tomatoes with cheese, mushrooms, beans or for the vegetarian a full vega-breakfast on order.

Activities and Attractions

Come and enjoy the most magnificent views of the Colchester / Alexandria dune fields which is the second largest coastal dune field in the world and the largest in the Southern Hemisphere. Explore the abundant birdlife along the estuary which at the last count was about 250 different species. The river also boasts a big variety of fish and kabeljou which weighed in at more that 65kg.

We welcome you with passion and pride to our lodge and offer you a memorable stay and an exiting visit to The Greater Addo Route.

Verified reviewvery good

Meggies Herzlichkeit und ihre mütterliche Verbalfürsorge sowie die Gelassenheit und Kompetenz ihres Mannes Les während unserer 4 Tage sind uns in angenehmer Erinnerung geblieben. Auch die Unterbringung in einem Appartement im Nebenhaus waren für meine Frau und unsere erwachsenen Töchter in Ordnung. Mit Tipps und Hilfsbereitschaft haben unsere Gastgeber unseren Aufenthalt prima unterstützt.
