this place is one of my favorite place on our Garden route in South Africa. Three nights and days spent there would never been forgotten...dear readers it's five star GAME lodge (not proper 5 star hotel in some megapolice like london with 5 star bed and bathroom, you should understand the difference)...and this place is gorgeous..i love the lodge we stayed there, i love all people worked there, our ranger/ess :) Diane was gorgeous, she tried her best to show as many animals in the Addo Elephant Park as she could. this place is smaller than Kruger but it's worth to stay there if you are short of time and want to see as much as possible for a couple days. We saw all animals so close that still cant belive it looking at photoes taken there. But this feeling in our hearts..special thanks to our chef (sorry cant remember his name, but he is originally from Zimbabwe), his meal was tasty, cooked with love and so sofisticated..my favorite is afternoon tea pastry (well, little cakes and pies with different stuff inside :) so lekker!!! this place is not cheap, but it's worth every penny. we recommend it to our relatives and friends and plan to come back there in a couple years. i feel guilty that fed a vervet monkey one day, but she was with baby and so sad eyes and only one meter from our lodge window :)
