Verified reviewexcellent

We really enjoyed our stay! Great breakfast, great supper, great location, great hosts! If you want to visit Addo Elephant Park this is the perfect place to stay. The owners are nature guides and really know a lot. What I liked most was the fresh juice in the morning, the home baked bread and the great hospitality.
