“Excellent”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

Arrived in pouring rain and were a little surprised by the "ski chalet" appearance compared to our expectations but could not have been more impressed by the place itself. The view of Addo was across a road so relatively distant but we had binoculars and enjoyed watching around 30 elephants plus ostrich, various buck and zebra. The evening braii had to be brought inside due to the weather but Moses and Prisca were great hosts and provided fantastic food. As noted everywhere else, the outdoor shower was great and when the sun shone, it really was "the business". Schotia felt a bit "staged" but when we left Addo Afrique, we were lucky enough to see one of the Addo lions a couple of kms up the road. Highly recommended.

This was a truly amazing place. The lodge overlooked part of Addo elephant park and we watched a wide selection of wildlife which including rhino. The accommodation is great and the outdoor shower was an exhilarating experience - another few degrees warmer and it would have been truly wonderful. All this was enhanced by our wonderful hosts Moses and Prisca who looked after us as if we were family. Moses cooked some great meals and was helpful and informative. We were both sorry to leave and this is one place we would come back to if/when we return to SA.

Room Tip: The honeymoon suite with great views and an outdoor shower.

The first view out of the bath window was in the eyes of a Waterbuck - a breathtaking moment. Following by the next one: the outdoor shower in sunrise. Moses spoiled us with an excellent breakfast and also the Barbecue - delicious! We had a witty conversation with him and he was so helpful for our trips to Addo an Schotia Reserve. A very lovely stay and a friendly goodby from clifford and the Nyala family near the Gate. Greetings from the other end of the world in northern europe. Ursula and Jürgen

I have been at Addo Afrique the second time already and again I really enjoyed my stay. The host Moses is a very friendly person and always ready to assist - not to forget his amazing cooking skills!! Seriously a pleasure staying there!

We spent 2 stunning nights at Addo Afrique, THis very special spot is further inhanced by the host Moses, whose passion and commitment completes the experience. Moses cooking is delicious and we were also very fortunate to arrive just after the lions had a kill across the road, we could watch them through the binoculars and hear them roaring during the night. Loved the outdoor shower, rest for the soul to stand under the shower with nature all around you.Brett and Natalie

Moses is the best. He is an excellent cook and really passionate about gastronomy (ask for his bread, chakalaka sauce and steaks). He is also welcoming, witty and attentive. Together with Prisca, we could not have asked for a better pair of hosts. It was nice watching the animals in the yet to be opened national park area across the road. The lounge was also very comfortable. We miss the place already.

For the price I paid, I would have been happier if there was a TV in my room. It would also be nice if the lodge had internet connection.

Addo Afrique is unique and exceptional. Moses, the Butler and host, is the heart and soul of this place. He made our honeymoon a very special memory. The animals and views are unforgettable and the food outstanding. The service we received here was one in a million and we will defenitely be going back with our friends and family.
Thank you again for the best time ever.
