                              The two ladies in charge are helpful, pleasant and seem to be doing their best under trying circumstances. The facility is run down, needs a lot of attention, the lawn and gardens are in a poor state. In general, I cannot recommend the place at all.

                              The unique Eastern Cape bush setting in the secluded hills were enchanting. We arrived at the Mud Huts on a hill, but they looked different from the pictures of Safarinow.com, not as colourful. The stairs to the patio were crumbling and the patio did not appear secure. The door did not lock. The interior was neat and clean. Bedroom/diningroom, as well as the kitchenette and shower and running hot/cold water was available.

                              Good firm King size bed with clean bedding and clean towels. Curtains don't really block any light. Poor water pressure, but hot water. Not much to use for the "self catering" part.

                              Wir sind sehr herzlich empfangen worden. Das Personal ist sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich. Die Zimmer und auch der Speise- und Aufenthaltsraum waren im afikanischen Stil eingerichtet (sehr schön). Von der Terrasse aus hatte man einen wunderbaren Ausblick. Das servierte Essen war sehr gut. Allerdings ist die Unterkunft ca. 14 km von der Hauptsraße entfernt (Ausschilderung an der Hauptstraße vorhanden) und bis zum Addo Elefant Park sind es ca. 40 km.We were very warmly received. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Both the rooms and the dining room and lounge were set up in African style...
