Very nice accommodation, basic, but clean and reasonably sized with good cooking facilities. It's the location you're getting the best deal from though as the rondavels overlook the floodlit watering hole so you can sit on your individual veranda and watch the wildlife. Our only issue was with the air conditioners / heaters, they are quite noisy and the rondavels... More

We spent one night in the forest cabins. Accommodation was simple, but comfortable. Monkeys can be a problem and pinched my wife's breakfast! forest cabins have a communal kitchen, which is nice because of the social aspect and meeting other Travellers, comparing notes. Nice. The main camp is busy, but very well run. It is clean, and systems all function... More

The rented cottages are fabulous, little own reet roofed house with a terrace and a nice view over the scrubs. It has it own parking space in front of the door and a little space next to the cottage, the braai area. The cottage is spacious and well equipped. All tidy and well maintained. The distance from the cottages is... More

The kids have been hassling us for a while to go camping so we compromised and went glamping while we were in South Africa. The safari tents were really great accommodation, we had everything we needed in the tent i.e. fridge, lamps, cutlery and crockery. The ablution blocks and outside kitchen were still there to remind us that we were... More

Addo elephant park is a great place. We decided to stay in the safari tent and it was a great experience. The tent had a fridge, towels, comfortable bedding and even a fan! It was cheap to book and you do get what you pay for, however we were impressed and had a great nights sleep and an elephant outside... More

We stayed in a chalet with twin beds and a sofa bed for our teenage son. Everything is in one room with a separate bathroom. The kitchen was well equipped, the shower was only a trickle,but there was also a bath. We went on a sunrise game drive where we saw a lion and kudu but not much else. We... More

I think the convenience of staying at the camp inside the national park outweighs almost any other consideration. During our stay the park gates opened at 6 and closed at 6 so you can beat everybody other than the scheduled early morning or night safaris arranged by the park. The Chalets have great kitchenette and pretty much everything you would... More

The chalet was very clean with all the essential appliances, braai, cutlery and linen that always makes a stay in a self catering unit pleasant, our 3 night stay in the SA National Parks at the main camp was most enjoyable. If we had anything to complain about it was the lack of information on the Darlington, Kuzuko, Kabouga, Nyati... More
