We were greeted at the gate by the 3 giraffes that they have on the park - an amazing start. The rooms are beautiful and...

Myself and 7 other friends booked a weekend away at Addo Afrique - Elephant Lodge during December 2010. We were welcomed by Gladys and Moses and taken directly to our BEAUTIFUL four bedroom house. The outside entertainment area was secluded, allowing us to feel as if we were the only people in the area. The view was spectacular with daily...
