Reviewed 3 November 2006

Great value for money four star hotel - very newly renovated (was a school apparently) so in need of a bit of soul, but plain honest food and excellent rooms with functioning airconditioning.
Golf course out back is in excellent condition - evidently hardly used as we only saw three golfers in three days! - and it was apparently designed by Gary Player.

Staff all local and evidently trying very hard to please.

Now the good news and bad news - the hotel is part of the group that owns Shamwari - the most expensive private game reserve in Africa - but the good news is that as a guest at Bushman Sands you can book to go on a game drive at Shamwari for R750 per person - at least in theory.

The bad news is that someone "forgot" ours and another couples' bookings - no doubt we were "bounced" by some VIPs and it caused us to waste a day - waiting for a ranger not to turn up until it was too late to arrange anything else - for our last day !

So we would recommend not to rely on the hotel arrangements and plan to spend time at Addo Elephant park as a back up plan.
