We stayed for two nights and everything was perfect. Very spacious cottage with a lovely view overlooking the lemon farm. The food was excellent. We booked the drive with Lindo, thanks to her we had a wonderful drive in Addo. We would recommend this guest farm to everyone. The only negative thing was that we had to leave so soon.

Very good located lodge close to the Addo Elefant NP - around 15 km from the Main Entrance. Our appartment had two rather small sleeping rooms, but also a living room with kitchen and fridge. We could also sit outside and use the (rather fresh) Swimming pool. Very friendly personnel and as well a child loving Jack Russell Terrier.

It is a really perfect Location to explore Addo for daily visits and it is a perfect Location for itself. We had the absolutely nice Family room/appartment house what was more than we expected. The staff there is really nice and it was a pity that we planned only one night there.

Thank you so much for your comment, Addo is such a small little village with not much around, but also so nice to come and relax with the peacefulness of the farm and rich bird life.... So glad to hear that you enjoyed your breakfast and dinner with us!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
COME AND RELAX IN OUR TRANQUIL ENVIRONMENT, WITH ONLY SOUNDS OF NATURE AT YOUR DOORSTEP... De Old Drift Guest Farm, a short distance from the little village of Addo in South Africa’s malaria-free Eastern Cape province and only 15min drive from the renowned Addo Elephant National Park, with its big Seven, and numerous other species. De Old Drift is a working citrus farm, one of the smallest but most peaceful farms in the area. Take a tour through the orchards and venture down to The Sundays river, only a short 2km away, where Njala, Kudu’s and Rooibok can be seen on the ridge of the mountain. Relax around the pool after a long day at the Elephant Park, or take a walk through the garden and orchards, when the trees are in blossom, the smell of citrus permeates the air. Enjoy our refreshing breakfast in our thatched roof lapa overlooking the garden and swimming pool area. Adventure, fun and games await children, where Pumba (Labrador), Timone (Jack Russel) and Mufasa (Bullmastiff) love to make new friends and play... a little paradise for all children. Your hosts Neels, Juanita and Steffi, will make sure that your stay will be one to remember. ... more   less
