Our main holiday was at a friends lovely cottage in Hermanus. On recomendation we decided to stay a few days in Alicedale at Addo Reach to visit Addo Elephant Park.
Addo Reach is located about 50 mins from Addo itself with a 'Born Free Foundation' sanctuary only 15 mins away, a must visit. John & Ellie are wonderful hosts with nothing being too much trouble. We had a real ZA brai on the first night with lovely ZA wine. Our older girls slept in the main house whilst we had the Self Catering apt. Everything was spot on: clean, friendly, safe, superb food( breakfast one of the best I've ever had!). It was a shame we did'nt stay longer.
Many thanks to the two of you & we do hope to see you again.
