Whether you are looking at getting closer to nature, or just looking for someplace that is tranquil and quiet while still being close to a major city, then Nukakamma Guest House is for you.

The name Nukakamma is the Xhosa name given to the Sunday River, it refers to the banks of the river that are always lush and green, despite the arid terrain it runs through.

Accommodation offered consists of four beautifully furnished bedrooms, each uniquely styled with original wooden finishing, smooth cotton linen and an authentic African appeal. One room is fully equipped for self-catering and features a kitchen, lounge, dining room and private deck with barbecue.

Timeless view of the Addo Elephant Park are enjoyed from each room, while their private entrances allow guests free access and independence. A delicious breakfast is served each morning and is best enjoyed from your private deck while you watch the elephants graze.

The Sundays River can be traced back to its source in the Compassburg Mountains near Nieu-Bethesda. The small town of Colchester, situated east of Port Elizabeth, is the site where this magnificent river meets the Indian Ocean and is also the entrance to the world renowned Addo Elephant Park.
