We spent two days in the park and we were very disappointed not to see even one elephant. Perhaps they were further south. We were also surprised that we could not buy a printed map - neither at the shop nor at reception - apparently the suppliers were at fault ! They gave us a many times recopied print of...

I had been to Addo Park many times, but this was my first time in the main rest camp. I stayed at one of the safari tents, and we had two male lions sleep right in front of our tent. It was magical. The tents are well equipped, the bathrooms clean and spacious. Super stay

Cottages are spacious, well equipped and private. Lovely bush view from balcony - although we only saw birds. The game drives were excellent as we saw loads of animals. This is a huge park so you can do numerous drives. The picnic site was so well equipped with separate picnic huts and clean toilets. There is a swimming pool for...

We stayed in the Chalets (there was three of us) which was advertised as being able to sleep 3 - wrong! There were two single beds (fine) however, the sleeper couch that was advertised for the third person is far from efficient for an adult. First of all it wasn't even made up when we arrived (even though we paid...

Addo is one of our favorite place to visit every year, even a few times a year, and we always stay in the park. over the years we have stayed in most types of units. This year we camped just a week ago, a group of 8, and this experience was disappointing as the facilities of the camp site and...

Reed grass rooved semi-detached bungalows with spacious balconies and great views. Self-catering and spacious all-round. Enjoyed a bottle of wine on the deck whilst listening to the hyenas and jackals in the distance. There's a very decent restaurant a short walk away and a communal outdoor swimming pool. Well worth the cost for the convenience and experience!

Reed grass covered cottage with nice terrace and view, fan (no ac), fully self catering, parking right out of the door. Just beware of monkeys and baboons, never leave anything outside unattended. Lot of birds will visit while you on the terrace. Big room, good maintaned and quiete location. You could also walk to the reception or restaurant.

This is a fabulous caravan park situated within the National Park. The facilities are well maintained and the ablutions are kept clean. Tons of hot water. There is a neat camp kitchen. An easy walk to the restaurant and water hole

I wouldn't call the accommodation we stayed in a "Chalet". It is definitely one of the worst accommodations we experienced in South Africa. You pay way too much for a dirty and bad accommodation which would need a lot of renovation. The hearth didn't work properly, the bin was broken, the bath in a really bad state, a used band...
