Beautiful place to chill out,staff are friendly and the dogs are great fun, my second time there and will definitely go back, it is also a prime location for people wishing to go on safari and of course offers great value for money.

Chrislin's is very close to Addo NP Main entrance and offers great lodging at a great value. It is a small property with excellent grounds keeping, setting and facilities. We never had the breakfast but can attest to incredible dinners and service. Chef Jean and the crew would be at home at any 5 star eatery but at prices anyone can afford. We stayed in the Sunset Lodge which had a King bed tond of room and great views. The have an arrangement with Criss Cross Adventure for outings and fun and we highly recommend them as well! Loved it all the way around!

Room Tip: You can not beat the Sunset!

Beautiful setting! Thank you so much for our lovely stay. Gorgeous mud hut on beautiful groomed gardens! Surrounded by citrus trees. The gardens & pool area were a perfect place to relax after the morning safari we did with Crisscross adventures (definitely worth booking with them!).
I would definitely book in for the 3 courses meal in the evening - such delicious food. They went out of their way to cater to me with my lactose intolerance - even baking a desperate loaf of bread with no butter just for me!!!!

We enjoyed the time at Chrislin so much! Our stay was two nights and we did two organized safaris. The guides were extraordinaire good! Big recommendation also for the nice Chrislin team, especially the receptionist! Lovely huts to relax, we would book again!

Wonderful place very close to the Addo National Park. Extremely friendly staff that is remarkable even for the high South African standards. Particularly baby and children friendly and also a perfect place to relax. We wish we would have stayed a night longer beyond our safari plans. Breakfast and dinner also very good and convenient to start / finish a safari day.
