Bathrooms are en-suite and have indoor and outdoor showers to suit your needs. There are also porcupine quills lamp shades found in the bathrooms and the lapa, which were handmade by the owner.

We had a lovely stay in one of the bush cabins where the bathroom and toilet are literally outside with views of the mountains. The kitchen was well equipped and there was wood for a braai or campfire. The game drive was special and the ranger had interesting facts and stories to share.

Addo Dung Beetle Guest Farm has beautiful surroundings, is well maintained and Rod and Magna are great hosts ensuring all your needs are met. The bush cabins are highly recommended should you want to get away from it all for a while.
