We stayed for 2 nights at the Chrislin Lodge and had a perfect stay. The Lodge is affordable and situated close to the Addo Elephant Park. The cabins are called Rondavels and are small huts with everything you need (simple but very nice!) You just are out there in nature but still enjoying luxury of your private hut+bathroom. We enjoyed sleeping there and on the premise they have very nice facilities, like a swimming pool, wifi and resting area which are very pleasant to be. We loved playing with their German shephard, named Jack. He is so nice and playful! The breakfast was good enough but only possible from 8am which was too late for us because we went into Addo before that time. But you can take a simple breakfast with you if you leave early, next day we had full and this was of course better. The dinner we enjoyed much, Elvis can cook! The also started singing and dancing for all of us which was very nice. Our visit at Chrislin Lodge will not be forgotten, thanks to the staff and the beautiful surroundings.

Extremely friendly staff, great rooms, best homemade food by Elvis, the chef!
An excellent example of true South African hospitality and a great place to stay and round up the game drives at Addo Elephant Park.
One of our party is a vegetarian and amazingly enough that did not pose a problem for Elvis, whom we actually only informed 10 minutes before dinner!
And to all our surprise, the whole staff remembered the following days.
That is truly outstanding service! Thank you!

Room Tip: All the huts at Chrislin provide the same excellent comfort.

The staff was extremely friendly and they did everything to make our stay perfect! They organized a great tour to the Addo park and gave useful recommendations. We are both vegetarians; a very tasty three-course dinner was prepared for us. The rooms are very spacious, clean and stylish. The garden with pool is very nice. We definitely recommend this place.
