Easy Aardvark Living
errol paul, South Africa - 06 July 2015
Great venue, comfortable accommodation, good location, laid back, no rush and easy life style attitude. Staff very accommodating. A tremendous place to stay. Will use it again when in the area.

We very much enjoyed our brief stay at the Aardvark in December 2014. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful - they even brought out big chalks for our grand-daughters to draw on the paved path on our last day! Charming and interesting décor.

Nice garden, nice place to stay and really next to addo elephant gate. I'll recommend the restaurant next door! Fresh vegetables from the garden

Great place and good service.
Alan Edwards, South Africa - 07 July 2014
The only thing that I would change about my holiday, would be the guesthouse. 1. Broken shower 2. Chipped coffee cups 3. Light fitting hanging loose from ceiling 4. Filthy communal kitchen 5. Algae growth on bathroom ceiling My impression is that the guesthouse is not managed properly

Dear Alan Edwards, We are sincerely sorry you had such a dreadful stay with us and would like to thank you for your comments, the necessary improvements will be done shortly. • Leaking shower-head will be replaced once more. • Out of 6 cups in the room, we found one with a very small chip - has been replaced. • Yes, there are traces of mildew on the shower's ceiling, we have cleaned this. • We are still looking for filth in the communal kitchen, kindly help us finding it. It is a pity that you wasted so much time in the search for default and most likely spoiled your holiday in Addo.
Excellent Place to Stay
Yvonne Cattrall Russell, South Africa - 11 April 2014
We had a very comfortable stay at the Aardvark in April 2014. Our rondavel room was clean and comfortable and we particularly enjoyed the large, clean kitchen facilities where we could prepare and enjoy our own cooked meals. After being on the road for three months, we decided to stay an extra day and take advantage of the comforts of home like facilities.

Surprise gem of Addo
Heyn De Kock, Australia - 31 December 2013
We were pleasantly surprised with this accommodation. The rondavels were very neat, clean and authentically decorated. Our stay was great value for money in this tourist hot spot. There are shared self-catering facilities in a separate building, however, there was adequate space and we didn't ever feel as though we were cramped. Only thing that would make the rooms even better would be to have a small bar fridge.
Comfortable stay
Tim Perks, South Africa - 28 December 2013
We spent a lovely night at the Aardvark Guest House. Our room was comfortable. The breakfast was suitable for our early start in Addo. Very good access to the Addo Elephant Park.

The book in procedure was very efficient and the owners made us feel welcome in explaining everything on our welcome tour. The rooms are nicely decorated, nicely cleaned and well equipt for the cold. Overall a nice stay and we will use Aardvark again.

We enjoyed our stay at the Aardvark Guest House in the safari tent very much. Their kitchen is well equipped and the bathrooms clean. Unfortunately hot water seems to be a problem some times. Their tariffs are very affordable.
Kim Jansson, South Africa - 25 March 2013
Nice and clean place, good location, excellent breakfast. Extra bonus for the superb restaurant next door.
Hiddo Kuipers, Netherlands - 23 March 2013
We zijn erg tevreden over de accommodatie. Hier en daar zijn enkele verbeteringen in de toiletruimte aan te brengen, hetgeen aan de eigenaar is verteld. Het bleek echter dat wij via meer hebben betaald, dan ter plaatse wordt aangeboden. Het verschil ad. R 120 zien we graag teruggeboekt. Hiddo Kuipers
Overnight stay at Aardvark Guest House
Jeanette & Berend Visser, South Africa - 19 February 2013
We found our stay most enjoyable. Our host met us and took us on a tour of his establishment. The interior of the chalets is well appointed. With the extreme heat we were experiencing we especially appreciated the fans which ran all night. Somehow this photo doesn't do justice to the accommodation.
Overnight accommodation
Saville Jankelowitz, South Africa - 31 December 2012
Very very pleasant, although it was difficult to communicate with owner - french and we are english. She was very kind and helpful - room was clean and atmosphere great. The restaurant on the premises was amazing.
Very nice

Very friendly owners, relativley new to South Africa, with very good tips what is interesting for us (tourists) to visit.
Awesome venue
lyle van muylwyk, South Africa - 10 January 2012
This is a great venue. We had a wonderful time, and it is a safe place for the children to unwind after a day in the car.
Wynand Dunn, South Africa - 03 January 2012
An excellent establishment. Value for money.
Highly recommended
Maria Compion, South Africa - 14 May 2011
We enjoyed our stay to the max with friendly hosts and comfortable, neat and clean accommodation where we felt very safe. Think the one restaurant and shop nearby is called Lenmore - they are highly recommended and their quiche is a must eat, they are also very helpful and friendly. The Elephant Park is also really close by and we enjoyed our visit.
Sanet van der Walt, South Africa - 03 May 2011
Thank you for a lovely stay in Addo. The hosts at The Aardvark are helpful and friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere.

We stayed at this place specifically to visit the Addo Elephant Reserve and it was the perfect location. The owners were very helpful. The facilities in the main house were good and the Rondavel itself was wonderful.
Wonderful holiday
Christina Schnell, Switzerland - 13 January 2011
Die Aardvark Guest House is a wonderful, neat place run by a Swiss-French couple and its helpful staff. We stayed in a Rondavel and admired all the little decor details. The place has a nice garden to relax in, a very clean shared kittchen, a living area and braai facilities. It is only a short drive to the Addo National Park. We liked the Aardvark Guest House very much and can highly recommend it!
Nice place
Trude Leenders-Eimers, Netherlands - 26 December 2010
We stayed with six adults and it was a good and nice place for two nights.

Charlene Heynes - 27 September 2010
It was short but relaxing and enjoyable. Will consider staying there again in future.
Excellent springboard for Addo Elephant Park
Patrick Seeton, South Africa - 24 September 2010
We were unable to find a suitable combination of accommodation inside Addo Park; a Google search drew our attention to Aardvark. We never looked back. Daniel and Claude were very accommodating to our needs. Two couples, one single adult and an infant for three nights. Brilliant, friendly and all fellow visitors were on the same wavelength. Relaxed, laid-back and interesting.
Very enjoyable
Salome Smuts, South Africa - 14 July 2010
Our stay was very enjoyable and we have already referred our friends - we will definitely return.
Melita and family
Melita Mvula, South Africa - 30 March 2010
Just do not not know where to start expressing my gratitude for the awesome stay I had at Aardvark guesthouse with my family. Firstly let me say the place was great and had a family feel, we felt as part of the Aardvark family though we were guests. Secondly the hosts were great to the kids, my kids were free as if were at home. I will definitely recommend it to family and friends. We really had a nice stay.
Most enjoyable Aardvark
Jan Bosch, South Africa - 18 March 2010
We stayed for 3 nights and wish it could be longer. Everything spotlessly clean and tidy; peaceful atmosphere; we could hear the hyenas laughing at night! Our Aardvark hosts were very friendly and helpful and very relaxed about the use of their facilities. We spent a full day in the Addo Park and the next day hiking through the spectacular Zuurberg mountains with its display of variety of vegetation types. All in all a stunning few days.
Very good, well located accommodation
Anonymous, South Africa - 24 February 2010
The Aardvark is excellent value for money. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the facilities (kitchen, BBQ area etc) are all very useful and well maintained. Great location for the Addo elephant park. Only thing this place is lacking is a pool as Addo is VERY hot however I'd definitely stay here again and would definitely recommend this accommodation.
Very nice
