Umlambo was fantastic. The cotttage was spacious and gorgeously decorated. The deck facing the river was peaceful and quiet with canoes on your own pontoon if you wanted to go canoeing. Angela (your host) and her family were lovely and extremely welcoming. We'd definitely go back.

What a beautiful place! The river setting is so peaceful and the cottage had everything we needed, even adapters for the plugs. We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfasts every morning (most delicious bacon) and all in all had the perfect family getaway. We will definitely come back when we are in Addo again!

A beautifully furnished cottage with a stunning view near the river. A place where one could relax and enjoy the lovely nature and surroundings. We enjoyed the kayak on the river and the lovely sunset!

This little treasure is by far the best kept secret yet! Situated in the Eastern Cape, Kirkwood area Umlambo is the perfect place to get away from the busy city life. The tranquil riverside camp setting is wonderful and relaxing. The friendly hostess, Angela and her staff made us feel at home instantly. A scrumptious breakfast was served every morning,...

The place is very beautiful. It's nicely situated by the river. The kayaks are a great plus. The kitchen is quite minimal, but there are plates but is barely self catering. The bed was great, bedding was good quality. Nice patio in front Would stay again for sure.

You feel total disconnected of the world staying in one of these amazing cottages besides the river. The scenery is one of the best you can get, the cottage is clean, comfy (kingsize bed) and safe. The owners are very friendly and helpful, they even made us a breakfast-to-go on request! If you're looking for something special, this is the...
