Chalets are, elegantly decorated and equipped with air-conditioners with a heating option. All the bedside tables and headboards are made from a combination of local wood species found in the area, like Yellow Wood, Oak, Sneeze Wood, and Black Wood. The Sneeze Wood chandeliers found throughout the chalets and in the Lapa are made out of old fence posts that were in use a few years ago, and are termite prufe. 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.

Our 3 private wooden bush cabins are for those real nature lovers situated each on different levels on the hillside in our safari area. Walking distance from the main lodge and parking area.

                          It was wonderful! Such a warm welcome and attentiveness from the hosts throughout our stay. The peace and quiet, the birdsong throughout the day, the cozy, well equipped Bush cabin, all just fantastic. And of course, the smell of Jasmine, Citrus blossoms, and Spekboom flowers can't be described. 10 out of 10! You will definitely be seeing us again.

                          Addo Dung Beetle must once have been a gem capturing the heart of nature with their accommodations, situated very close to Addo Elephant Park. It is sad to see that upkeep is not kept up to standard. With a broken down jacuzzi, creaky walkways, and disabled water features, the lodge does not hold up as advertised.

                          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....
