Archie is a perfect host...his lodge is built with attention to detail, the cuisine is really fine. The safari drive with the ranger at Addo Elephant National Park was interesting! We suggest spending at least 2 nights in this fantastic location!

Top design and equipment of the separate African styled rotundas. Excellent service, breakfast and dinner. Guided Addo Elephant NP- tour very recommendable. Ground is located on the edge of a high plateau with a wonderful lookout.
