    Rooms are big, bed is comfortabele. To visit Addo National Park you only have to drive 5 minutes. The swimming pool is rather small. Unfortunately we could not eat from the card, because a buffet was organised since there was a group as well.

    Perfect stay close to the Addo Elephant Park in a very nice lodge with very warm-hearted hosts. Rooms are spacious and have an outdoor shower. In the evening John prepared delicious dinners and the bar was well equiped.

    Worth each Rand! Friendly staff and great buffet in the evening. Everything was freshly prepared. The room we had was large and the linen were clean and comfortable. The mattress was great. We slept like home. Thank you very much for your hospitality!

    Beautiful rooms, superb food, and an amazing location right at the entrance to the park. But our hosts Carin and her husband made Elephant's Footprint Lodge stand out. Short story: I left my smartphone at the lodge in the day we left, and then drove...More
