We enjoyed our stay. Comfortable, clean accommodation - great service especially from Nandipa. But not sure it is really the 4 star accommodation it is listed as.
Being billed as such sets one up for initial disappointment. I'd rate it as perfectly adequate 3 star accommodation. 
3 night stay
Jimmy Catsavis, South Africa - 23 July 2014
Accommodation, food and location in Addo was great. We will definitely use De Old Drift again.

amanda boocock, South Africa - 13 January 2014
What a superb place to stay, the staff were so helpful, the self catering cottages were delightful set in a beautiful garden - only wish we could've stayed for longer!
Very enjoyable

Great stay
Lisa Hollstegge, South Africa - 22 September 2013
De Old Drift is the best accommodation when you long for a cosy, tranquil day to chill or when you´re looking for a good starting point to Addo. It´s just 15 minutes to drive to the main gate. We stayed in a self-catering cottage with our three-year old son. The facilities are really perfect. The surrounding is more than beautiful. We will come back for sure.
Comfortable and welcoming
Len Schaller, South Africa - 13 July 2013
Lovely place, warm and friendly welcome. great dinner recommendation and excellent advice for our trip onward. Juanita went out of her way to pack a lovely breakfast/brunch because we had to leave early. Thanks for all the effort.
Well maintained
Connie Marais, South Africa - 23 March 2013

Great place! Lovely breakfast and close to park. Loved the garden and friendly people
Cindy De Wit, Netherlands - 13 November 2012
The room was beautiful and so were all the facilities such as the swimming pool, garden and breakfast area. The hosts were excellent and very helpful. We enjoyed our stay immensely and would recommend this place to everyone visiting this area.
Great two days
Eric Buysse, Belgium - 13 April 2012
This is our second time round and everthing was just right. The price, the rooms, the breakfast, the braai, the trip to Addo Park - that was a bonus. You ask for something extra and they will try to accommodate you.
Thoroughly enjoyed
christine wilmshurst, United Kingdom - 08 March 2012
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The accommodation was comfortable and thoughtfully decorated and nothing was too much trouble for our hosts Delano and Lisa. Food was also delicious. The all day safari organised and lead by Delano was an absolute highlight; exciting, informative and fun. We would highly recommend this B and B.
Amazing stay
Gabriele Würger, Austria - 13 April 2011
It was an amazing stay. Delano and Liz were such friendly hosts. One day was just too short!
A unique place!
Jean-Paul Schuller, Canada - 28 March 2011
We felt quite pampered here. We had a beautiful, large room with a nice patio. The whole setting was tranquil and the hosts Lize and Delano were very welcoming and friendly. Wish we could have stayed longer!
Very nice

Diane Forster, United Kingdom - 04 February 2011
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were lovely and the hosts were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. We definitely recommend you to take a game drive with Delano. It was excellent!
Wonderful Stay in Addo

De Old Drift Guest Farm Self Catering unit was fabulous. Clean and bright bedrooms, very well equipped kitchen and a shower with power! However, it was the views and gardens that we most enjoyed. If we visit Addo again, we shall certainly stay at the De Old Drift Guest Farm.
Homey atmosphere

Good place to rest
Bert Groen, Netherlands - 10 August 2009
We had a good stay in the Old Firm Guest House, and the people were friendly. It is very quiet and a good place to rest.
Fantastic place!
Monica Pettersson, South Africa - 22 April 2009

Great Place
Detlef stober - 08 March 2009
I stayed at the Addo De Old Drift Guest Farm with two friends of mine at end Feb 09. I was a great place to stay and very close to Addo Park. Only, that we missed an A/C in our little cottage (but: such A/C was available in other rooms).
Eric Buysse, Belgium - 02 March 2009
The Weather was terrible , the whole town's electricity fell out , but it was still a wonderful but short stay.the farm , the ( what I call ) bird village over the water.This makes for wonderful memories.
The most beautiful farm so far!
Maarten Brussen, Netherlands - 10 January 2009
Lovely picturesque farm, complete with a short explanation of historic events of the farm. Lovely staff who made us feel at home! Lots of activities to do, all can be arranged from within the farm.
Paul Ribchester, United Kingdom - 15 October 2008
Lovely people who made us feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. Fresh lemons from the trees whenever we wanted. Lovely weather so we sunbathed in August! Only one restaurant in Addo, but it was good. Good though few other local attraction - crocs and baby lions, elephant park and the 3 hour horse ride was brilliant. Lovely thatched cottage set away from the main house was delightful. Own BBQ area. Two lovely dogs welcomed us every arrival, but they were very safe, obedient and well behaved.
sara doherty, United Kingdom - 14 April 2008
FANTASTIC in every way. The accommodation was perfect, facilities brilliant, Liza and her husband were so accommodating and friendly, nothing was too much bother. Homemade breakfast muffins were particularly delicious. For their first year in business this couple have excelled themselves. As a family we holiday around the world 3-4 times a year and Olde Drifte has made it into our top 5 places where we have stayed. Excellent value for money. Very close to Addo Elephant reserve. Our 2 children, aged 3 and 7 loved the farm, they were able to roam round with freedom, enjoyed fishing and quad biking. We originally only booked 2 nights but extended our stay because it was such a perfect start to our holiday. We would definitely recommend to friends and can't wait to return. Excursions to Scotia safari, Daniels Cheetah Centre and Reptile Centre in Addo were FABULOUS. Our children and ourselves did not want to leave. Thank you so much

The website probably does this place a disservice as it is a lovely establishment. It really is idyllic but a possible downside for some may be a lack of TV-which when the weather is poor - is something nice to fall back on. BUT-that probably does not suit the general selling point of the establishment!
Great value for money
Karen Earnshaw, United Kingdom - 10 March 2008
The farm was great, so peaceful with lovely modern pool area and restaurant with Lizl's great home cooking. The owners could not have been more friendly or helpful and our self catering cottage was very well equipped and great value for money. We even had our own 'bodyguards' in Timon and Pumba, the resident dogs who were a very cute pair! It only took about 20 mins to Addo park entrance from here. NOTE: If you are self catering drive to Lenmore Deli shop - just before the Addo park entrance, it's well stocked with fresh food and much nicer than the supermarket in the small town.
Very good
Niels Blankenburg, United States of America - 10 February 2008
I enjoyed it, neat and clean, very friendly. If Im ever in the area Id gladly come by again.
Janelle Stokker, South Africa - 10 February 2008
What a lovely peaceful setting, the perfect place to get away from it all! Will definitely recommend it to anybody!
Lekker gekuier
hannes cilliers, South Africa - 02 July 2007

A short distance from the little village of Addo in South Africa's malaria-free Eastern Cape and only a 20 minute's drive from the renowned Addo Elephant National Park with its Big 5 and numerous other species, is found a variety of lovely accommodation at De Old Drift Guest Farm.

You are cordially invited to come and enjoy the tranquil environment at De Old Drift Guest Farm either as a break on your travels or as a base for your holiday. We are situated next to the Sunday River, which is convenient for guests who enjoy fishing.

You can sit on your private patio and experience the tranquility of nature. Sometimes Kudu, Nyala and Rooibok come down from the hills to drink at the river.

Short walking trails and a rich birdlife can be enjoyed. As mentioned, we are only 10 minutes drive from the Addo Elephant National Park. Game drives can be organized for you.
