We loved the rondavels. They were cool on a hot day and warm on a cold night. My son said he could live in one forever. I was very happy with the service we received. Everything was very efficient. We got our rooms early. And the dinner - the 3 course dinner was the best food I had in my...

Everything was really wonderfull at Chrislin African Lodge! Food & Service was amazing, BUT be aware of the bats in the Luxury room. We didn't sleep at all and when we reported there were bats in the room they said this happens once in a while.. Tip for the staff: Write a instruction for dealing with bats.

We stayed here for two nights in the orchard hut, nice place, clean and comfortable. Food is superb, people are friendly. The setting is very nice in an orange orchard. An awesome place to be. Did a safaritrip into Addo with the open truck, what an experience, seen elephants for Africa. Well organised and affordable.

Do not let anything fool you, this is a surprisingly luxurious stay in lodges modelled after traditional African huts. The lodges are comfortable, but the real attraction is the large park in which these lodges are scattered. There are many, many orange trees, a pool, and a lounge area where you can sit and relax if you're not in the...

I recently stayed at Chrislin whilst attending a conference. the setting proved to be very quiet and peaceful whilst providing easy access to the Elephant Park. We were extremely well hosted and the food was plentiful and very tasty. The hut stayed in was extremely clean and well appointed.I was extremely well hosted..

Very quite and well designed place. Perfect as starting point to visit Addo National Park and to relax after a full day of visit. The cottage in African style are wonderful and with a lot of space inside. The meals (we had breakfast and dinner for a couple of days) are very good and more than enough.
