Wunderbarer Aufenthalt in der Nähe verschiedener Game Reserve. Hatten die einfache Variante mit den Bush Camps - wunderbares Africa Feeling mit viel Romantik. Wer bemängelt, dass man vielleicht da und dort durch Ritzen in der Unterkunft sieht, soll sich selbst an der Nase nehmen und dann die Luxusvariante buchen oder zahlen. Ich würde diese einfachere Variante jederzeit wieder wählen. Nach einem Dinner in guten Restaurant in der Nähe kann man hier gemütlich auf der Terrasse sitzen und im Grill ein wunderbares Feuer entfachen und in den Nachthimmel schauen. Es besteht ach eine Kochmöglichkeit....

We had our own private space in a bush cabin. It reminded us on early tent vacations but now with cozy warm comfortable beds! Staying in the fresh air, sitting on the balcony, having a fire, looking over the bright landscape; just great.  One of the best showers during our vacation!

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.
