About Avoca River Cabins
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.

Beautiful setting and a relaxed environment with a warm welcome. Thank you for a lovely stay!
Great, stunning place.Friendly people. Stunning scenery.
We had an awesome stay at Avoca , well priced and great value for money. Only wish we could have stayed there longer. An ideal launch pad for visiting Addo . Will certainly be back !!!
Perfect stopover after a day in Addo, lovely setting amongst citrus farms overlooking the valley and reasonably priced.
We spent 3 nights recently in the mud hut, which was pleasant.
