Booked 2 nights here and enjoyed every minute. The staff are very welcoming, rooms are very clean and comfortable and the food is excellent. They have recently started their own safari drives into Addo on a safari vehicle which was a great day out. A great place to stay if you are visiting Addo.

This was our favorite place we stayed in South Africa! The service was amazing and everyone was super friendly! Our room was clean and intimate. They have dogs that greet you when you arrive and they will walk around with you everywhere you go. We were extremely sad to leave, as we felt like we were leaving friends. The breakfast...

The rooms are clean, light and have a nice modern interior. The gardens are very taken care and give you a feeling like you were in paradise. The pool area is perfect to get...

I booked this Lodge because we wanted to participate in a whole day safari. The safari company collected us directly at the loge after breakfast. I liked the breakfast (included) and evening menu (optional).

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

“The rooms are all different and apparently the rooms nearer reception have slightly better wifi although it is still erratic we were told by other guests. Some rooms are further away, but nice and quiet. The whole farm is very peaceful and we enjoyed it.”
