I stayed here with the Trek South Africa team as part of our project and we really enjoyed our stay. The game viewing in this area is incredible! There are so many elephants that come so close to the game vehicles, it's really mind blowing to get to experience them at such a close proximity. The accommodation units are neat... More

Addo rest camp was the first camp that we stayed at in South Africa and we were impressed with the accommodation and the camp facilities. Our bungalow was very clean, it was well maintained and the kitchen was well equipped. Outside, there was a spacious balcony that had views of the park - Warthogs, Kudos wandered passed and lots of... More

I did not expect huge comfort and we got what we expect, nice lodges and cottage houses,at a.good price vs value. Only negative aspect is booking procedure is quite complex, this could be enhanced. Area is nice, enjoy the view but be aware of apes.

We camped for 2 nights in the camping area. This area is very small but adequate for camping as long as not use campers are trying to get into this area. Each camping site has got a braai and a table and benches and dustbin. Water close by. The ablution block was fine and kept clean. The bird life was... More
