Location Information

Apart from the Addo Elephant National park and its world famous wildlife there is also a lot to see and do in the area.
Addo is the second largest citrus producing area in South Africa and it is due to the Citrus industry the Park came into existence. Conflict between man and the Elephants of the area made it necessary to form the National Park way back in the 1930's.

We also boast the longest dual zip line in South Africa. At just under 1/2 km long and dropping around 70m.

Cancellation Policy

Customers can cancel their reservation free of charge up to 1 day before arrival. After this date, charges will be applied by the property up to the first nights cost of the reservation, unless otherwise stated in the property’s conditions. Deposits paid are non refundable.
