About Elephants Footprint Lodge

This cosy lapa-style lodge, nestled under the Addo Heights foothills, offers 12 luxury suites with semi-open plan bathrooms and our Special Feature: open air ‘rock face’ showers, all under thatch.

Unwind on the deck next to our woodland style plunge pool; with a glass of wine chosen from our cellar. Full Continental /English breakfast included in our rate.

We are situated 1km off the N2, 30 km from Port Elizabeth & 2km from the Southern Gate (Camp Matyholweni) of the Addo Elephant National Park, close to the Alexandria Dunes, and the village of Colchester, close to the beach and the mouth of the charming Sundays River Valley.

Weather can change from hot in the day to cool in the evening - a warm jacket to be kept handy at all times.

Swimming costume and sunblock essential. Long trousers for evenings. Warm jacket for boat cruises in Autumn and Winter, sometimes in Mid Summer.

The East Cape weather is notoriously variable but the Sunshine Coast is so called as this area boasts the most sunshine hours in S.A.

The temperatures are very mild all year averaging 25 c in summer and 20 c in winter

                  Spacious rooms, the host was very nice, I felt very welcomed, the bathroom is quite fancy with a huge bathtub and outdoor shower.

                  Elephants Footprint Lodge is a comfortable small Lodge with easy access to Addo Elephant Park. This was my second visit, and although the rooms still remain clean and comfortable, I found that the quality of the food was not what it was a year ago. Room for improvement were that is concerned.   I would definitely consider staying again, but should the food not improve it will be my last stay.  The proximity to Addo is the big advantage.

                  We, a group of 10 people, stayed only one night at the lodge but would have liked to stay longer. Nie and clean rooms and a very friendly service from the nice owners couple. Good value for money!
