Clean chalet with lovely braai area on deck overlooking hills.

Everything was perfect except the braai grid which is designed to slide around as well as up and down so that one can adjust the level at which one prefers to braai. The up and down aduster was so rusted that it could not be moved. Most annoying. Otherwise a very well run camp.

Very nice time spent at Addo! Our chalet was neat and clean and we have enjoyed the scenery. Lots of wild animals were seen and we've even been so lucky to see the lions!

The house I stayed in was perfect. Everybody helped when I asked something. I had a very pleasant stay at Addo.
