There were 16 of us in total and we stayed in the 3 semi-detached chalets, and one of the mud huts and everyone really enjoyed their stay. Tons of gorgeous flowers and butterflies. Decent kitchens and great braai area and playground - very...

Our stay at Acoca was short but we were very impressed and loved every minute! Next time we will stay longer! The setting along the river is beautiful and the pool and play area fantastic for the kids! The friendliness and helpfulness just added to the two adventure packed days that we had! Thank you!

Amazing place for a family trip to Addo - the cabins, the canoes, the breakfast - all super. What a location and we loved the dogs and cats and the family friendly atmosphere. A real bargain and we felt very lucky to have found such a beautiful place -the highlight of our trip.

This is a gorgeous place, we wished we could have stayed longer. Beautiful surroundings and we loved having breakfast and dinner up at the house. Fantastic cooking and really good value for money. Very close to Addo Elephant park so perfect place to base yourself if you don't want to stay in the park.

Very nice property on Fruit Farm with lots of space, about 20 min drive away from Addo National Park. Although there's plenty to do around the huts as well. The accomodation is basic, the surroundings beautifull. Kids loved the playing grounds and the kanoes. We loved the tranquility, you can relaxe near the river, preparing a Braai, on the veranda....

Fantastic place for a family. Kids could enjoy the beautiful play ground and surrounding gardens. Lovely swimming pool and then of course canoes available to paddle on river. Only 20min from Addo Elephant Park and so we could go into the Park every day. Unit we stayed in was great. Clean and very affordable for a family of 4. Staff...
