Etta and Derek were wonderful hosts and their lodge is lovely. They clearly have a real passion for what they do and you can see that in the attention to detail of the room and their energy for showing you around Addo and th surrounding area. We stayed in the Lion Suite for 2 nights which was immaculate. Etta explained they close the lodge for a period of time each year and throw away anything that is not perfect. You can tell.
Extra took us n a half day guided tour of Addo which was marvellous. Her eye for spotting animals is phenomenal - even with binoculars I couldn't spot what she did. We managed to see 4 of the big 5 within an hour of arriving.
Overall I'd highly recommend this place.
