Reviewed 17 October 2013

Beautiful area, you can hear nothing but bird song! Wonderful gardens, rooms were so perfect with little touches of elegance here & there which made the whole experience even better. Only here for one night but felt very relaxed and at home, especially with the three dogs roaming around.

Lovely breakfast, very nice staff. Would recommend to anyone visiting the area.

My girlfriend and I loved it there so much. Our room was clean, the staff were very friendly. Steff, the manager, always had a smile with her service.
We also went on the Schotia Safari, it was our first safari. What an experience.
And not to forget Timon, Pumba & Mufasa, the dogs at De Old Drift, they added a personal touch with their hospitality too. We are definately returning one day in the future.

One of the best relaxing breaks we have had in years. I know 100% is the top percentage to score but this place scores 110% with ease. Professional manager who is a great peoples person and the owner, Lize make you feel as if you are royalty. Lovely to have the three canine bodyguards accompany us on the walks in the lemon orchards and river front. Our sincere gratitude for a wonderful experience. God's blessings to all of you for the future.

Room Tip: Chalet on south side has spectacular view.

My mother and I stayed two nights in a self-catering cottage. Very comfortable and clean and a lovely location to return to after an afternoon driving around nearby Addo Elephant N.P. The owners' three resident canines are the sweetest-natured, most well behaved fellows! They were so cute the way they'd come for a walk with us down to the river, or quietly sit outside the door in the morning waiting for a "good morning" pat! This was one of the best places we stayed in our trip around South Africa!

Upon arrival, we were greeted by the friendly manager, Steffi, as well as Mufasa, Pumba and Timon, the resident dogs. The dogs soon became part of our family during our stay! Our Deluxe Family Chalet was very well laid out, clean, and well equipped. And the mattresses, oh my! We felt like we were sleeping on clouds! The service of the cleaning staff was superb. They even cleaned our braaigrid for us! The owners, Neels and Juanita, are very friendly and they made us feel at home from the start. We loved our stay there and will definitely recommend it!

We've had an awesome time at the De Old Drift Guest Farm. Steffi the manager was super nice and very helpful: She organized a trip to Schotia Game drive which has been great fun for her. The three dogs are super cute, very child friendly (we've been traveling with our little baby girl) and great fun to play with. The rooms are very clean with a big kitchen and options to do a BBQ. It has been excellent value for the money and we can definitely recommend this place to any family that want's to stay near Addo.

We stayed for 3 days in the Old Drift.

Close to the main entrance of Addo. Great and helpful host (Steffi). Perfect breakfast served by Margaret and Lydia. Very peaceful environment

We stayed together with our daughter in the family unit with two rooms and a main room. For periods when it is dark and cold early and you can not use the terrace, the main room could be made a little more cosy.

All in all perfect stay, good quality, very nice staff, reasonable price.

COME AND RELAX IN OUR TRANQUIL ENVIRONMENT, WITH ONLY SOUNDS OF NATURE AT YOUR DOORSTEP... De Old Drift Guest Farm, a short distance from the little village of Addo in South Africa’s malaria-free Eastern Cape province and only 15min drive from the renowned Addo Elephant National Park, with its big Seven, and numerous other species. De Old Drift is a working citrus farm, one of the smallest but most peaceful farms in the area. Take a tour through the orchards and venture down to The Sundays river, only a short 2km away, where Njala, Kudu’s and Rooibok can be seen on the ridge of the mountain. Relax around the pool after a long day at the Elephant Park, or take a walk through the garden and orchards, when the trees are in blossom, the smell of citrus permeates the air. Enjoy our refreshing breakfast in our thatched roof lapa overlooking the garden and swimming pool area. Adventure, fun and games await children, where Pumba (Labrador), Timone (Jack Russel) and Mufasa (Bullmastiff) love to make new friends and play... a little paradise for all children.
