I spent two nights in this place and I was gushing to the managers of how excellent their establishment is. This private reserve is just over 20 km from the town of Port Alfred. If you want peace and quiet, this is the place for you. What impressed me the most is how you get to see the ocean from... More

We stayed for only three days, but we should have stayed longer. Beautiful lodge, staff friendly and game drives a pure joy. We will definitely visit Ford D'Acre again in the near future. I can recommend this lodge for a relaxing breakaway
