Addo is one of our favorite place to visit every year, even a few times a year, and we always stay in the park. over the years we have stayed in most types of units. This year we camped just a week ago, a group of 8, and this experience was disappointing as the facilities of the camp site and...

Reed grass rooved semi-detached bungalows with spacious balconies and great views. Self-catering and spacious all-round. Enjoyed a bottle of wine on the deck whilst listening to the hyenas and jackals in the distance. There's a very decent restaurant a short walk away and a communal outdoor swimming pool. Well worth the cost for the convenience and experience!

Reed grass covered cottage with nice terrace and view, fan (no ac), fully self catering, parking right out of the door. Just beware of monkeys and baboons, never leave anything outside unattended. Lot of birds will visit while you on the terrace. Big room, good maintaned and quiete location. You could also walk to the reception or restaurant.

This is a fabulous caravan park situated within the National Park. The facilities are well maintained and the ablutions are kept clean. Tons of hot water. There is a neat camp kitchen. An easy walk to the restaurant and water hole

I wouldn't call the accommodation we stayed in a "Chalet". It is definitely one of the worst accommodations we experienced in South Africa. You pay way too much for a dirty and bad accommodation which would need a lot of renovation. The hearth didn't work properly, the bin was broken, the bath in a really bad state, a used band...

We stayed here some years ago in the Cottages, it was a great experience. We have now stayed in the camping/caravan rest camp, we are booked in for 3 nights, I think from our first night experience we will be on the move. From arrival at Reception it did not sit well. It was like Picadilly Circus & Admin did...

We didn't book upfront our campsite in Addo NP (as the sanparks website showed plenty of availability), to our surprise when we came in (again pick your spot), many campsites were already taken by caravans.. the tentsites are so tiny that people with tents automatically go to the caravan sites, we with our rooftop tent also needed to take a...

For several years we have been visiting Addo & always try to secure reservations at rondavels because being able to sit out on your own stoep enjoy a great view of the waterhole & wait over a glass of cool wine is exceptional. We have stayed twice in the last 2 months & both times were excellent. Think that perhaps...

Amazing. Absolutely amazing. We stayed only one night in the safari tents and let me tell you, it was awesome. The tent is secured, so you can lock your belongings inside without any problems. You have a big deck that looks out to the park where we saw elephants hanging out. You have a communist kitchen area and bathroom which...

Stayed here in November 2016 for 2 nights. Arrived about noon, but they're quite strict that you cannot check in officially until 2pm. Did all the paperwork at reception upon arrival so just had to go back to collect our room key. While we waited for a couple of hours it gave us a chance to wander around, and we...
