  • Description
  • Facilities
In the beautiful citrus and rose growing area of the Sundays River Valley, 25 minutes from the Addo Elephant Park, Dave and Judy Smith welcome you to their farm. Avoca, which means ' The meeting of the waters '. Ideal for nature lovers and bird watchers.

Luxury fully-equipped chalets along the river. Sleeps two to five people. Four thatch and mud huts with two hot shower/toilets and a fully-equipped ' Lapa ' (Kitchen) alongside the river where there is an abundance of fish and birdlife. Plenty of scenic walks through the citrus orchards, and canoeing on the river , which is inclusive of the price.

A path leads down from the lush garden to a small bush camp overlooking the river where two wooden cabins nestle in a sheltered clearing. We now have a new chalet on this site.

They share a hot shower/toilet and a fully equipped 'Lapa'. The camp leads out onto a deck that looks out over the river and mountains. A great place for sundowners.

We also have access to a private game lodge at R1400 per person per day, which includes dinner, drinks and breakfast and a night and morning game drive. The wildlife includes Lions, Rhinos, Hippos, Giraffes and several Antelope

Although our rates are per unit on the site we do welcome singles and couples to enquire about better options. Our self-catering units are not serviced, except by prior arrangement. Units not being serviced, except by arrangement. We also cater for backpackers.

A beautiful place to stay. Lovely scenery and well equipped rooms.

Adam Gerber, South Africa
12 April 2014

We stayed in the forest cabins. The cabins are very nice. The swimming pool is near and the meals on the terras at the swimming pool were superb. The shared lapa has only one fridge for two cabins and the stove has only two pits. Since we were the only guests that used the stove, this was no problem.

Peter Leersnijder, Netherlands

We enjoyed our stay, but we had hoped we good have a braai or something like that with other guests. The chalet was clean but very basic. The swimming pool was very nice and also the people who work here.

It was a dream to stay in this wonderful river cabin gymnogene and also in cabin sunbird. We would only be too pleased to come again to Dave with his dog Maximus.
