My wife and I spent three nights here last week. We loved everything about it! The rooms were awesome! The grounds were immaculate! Best of all - were the hosts! Rod and Magda made you feel very welcome and comfortable. We had dinner there on two of the nights. It was some of the best food we have had in recent history. Thank you Rod and Magda for helping us have one of our best travel experiences ever!

Our experience of Addo Dung Beetle Guest Farm was absolutely great from making the booking to the moment we checked out. We are a family of 5 that stayed for 3 nights. Rod and Magna are the perfect hosts. The views are stunning, the rooms great, the bathroom to DIE for and the food lovely!! We will be back.

Nice place, close to Addo Parc.
He is a very good guide, well informed whats living in the parc and she is an excellent lady of the house.
Good food presented cosy to the open fire. Nice vieuws in front of the cottages and cabins. We had a pleasant stay here. Sometimes a bit cold, and be dressed for a cold ride in the parc when the sun sets

We had a lovely few days at Addo Dung Beetle staying in the very comfortable cabins, enjoying Magda's home cooking and Rod's enthusiastic trips into the park. We felt like we were really well looked after, with a great and comfortable accommodation, and spot-on advice on things to do in the area. The level of service and comfort is perfectly pitched for the price and we really felt that our hosts wanted to make sure we had the best stay we could have. Rod was a very knowledgable guide into the Elephant park and was determined to show us the best the park had to offer, with our trip culminating in a magical experience at the heart of a herd of elephants.

Room Tip: Take ear plugs - the frogs are very noisy at night!

We stayed 2 days @ADB in one of the bush cabins with great view. It's a outside camping experience with the convenience of a good bed, warm shower, and braai & kitchen (+fridge).
Yes, you will be in the wild, so you can encounter some bugs.
Do the Addo Elephant Park trip with Rod, he is truly enthusiastic, knows & sees a lot. He drove around the park for 4 hours: Fantastic and really worth the money! Overall a great experience, baie dankie for that!

Stayed at the Addo Dung Beetle for 4 nights and could not have asked for a more welcoming experience. Magna and Rod are wonderful hosts, making you feel like friends rather than guests staying at their farm. Magna has the most wonderful disposition as well as being professional and Rod is extremely knowledgeable and is an excellent guide showing us around the Addo Elephant Park. I cannot thank them both enough for making our first trip to South Africa amazing! Thank you both so much guys.

Room Tip: We were in Room 2 and it had the most wonderful views

My 16 year old son and I had an unforgettable stay in the glorious bush camp accommodation - it has all the positives of camping without any of the negatives! Loved the outdoor shower!
We had the absolute pleasure of an Addo Elephant Park tour with Rod, one of the hosts (see Geared to Go Tours) as guide - not only did he allow us to see the delightful Elephants right up close, but we learnt so much about all the park's animals from Rod's facts and anecdotes!
We also took out the farm's quads for a ride which was great fun, especially for my son!
We were only there for 36 hours but enjoyed it so much that we will be remembering our stay for a very long time - thank you Rod and Magna!
