We have stayed for two nights in the Addo Nation Park. The Park ist okay, if it will be the first time, that somebody will do a safari. It has many tourists there. Also the landscape is a little bit boring. It has much better Nation Parks in South Africa like the Hluhluwe Umfolozi Park, Ithala Game Reserve or the...

The Addo Elephant park offers to drive through with your own car which is a lot of fun to discover the animals on your own. We spent our night in a cottage and the roof is made out of reet - this might be the reason for the very unpleasant smell. It was extreme and we figured out that there...

Our property was beautiful, well maintained, nice and clean, lovely round building with thatched roof and small veranda overlooking a floodlit waterhole and set in a large lawned area with BBQ facilties. There was a shared kitchen area with locked cupboards for each of the 6 rondavels for pots and crockery ect. Again everything very clean. We thought it was...

Domcrag cottage is highly to be recommended at Addo. It has 2 bedrooms, 1 with a double, the other with 2 double beds. Both en-suite. Very well equipped - fridge-freezer etc. Air conditioning. Lovely veranda overlooking the park. Easy access to swimming pool. Saw a bush-buck right by the house and vervet monkeys climbing onto the roof. No need to...

The view of the rondawels at the Addo Elephant National Park is absolutely stunning. You have a great view over a hill with below a waterhole which attracts animals. Unfortunately we only saw some Kudu's. The room itself is small but very comfortable. There is a seperate rondawel with a shared kitchen with a separate kitchen part for every room....

Every national park in South Africa is compared to Kruger, and that's probably the right comparison. I'll state it flatly; Addo is interesting and enjoyable, but it's not Kruger. And if you're heading to Kruger, you can save yourself the time and money and skip Addo -- you won't be missing anything. But if you're NOT visiting Kruger -- and...

A group of 6 of us, 3 couples,stayed in 3 of the rondavels in September. Loved being able to sit and watch the animals at the waterhole from our front porch! The units are small, just big enough for a bed and bathroom, but quite comfortable, and warm enough on a very cold night. The communal kitchen facilities were also...

We had a great 2 nights in Addo Park, staying at the Addo rest camp. We were in the Hapoor guesthouse overlooking the main waterhole and had front row seats to the evening’s entertainment – dueling kudus, frolicking elephants, and marauding buffalo! The view from our bedroom was spectacular - full view of the goings-on at the water hole. The...

We stayed in Main Camp in a Rondawell. It was a bit small, but clean and very functional. Nice deck, but a bit chilly to sit out at night waiting for the elephants at the water hole. We lucked out on our last night and saw an 'elephant parade' come down the hill to the water hole. At least 40...
