We just loved our two night stay at the DungBeetle River Lodge. Etta and Derek were wonderful hosts; greeting us with a glass of wine and a beer, while we discussed our very limited time to explore a very large, wonderful national park. Our room, the Fish Eagle Suite, was large, clean, well decorated, very comfortable, and romantic. It was our best night of sleep since we had arrived in South Africa 12 days before. We also recommend Grunters for supper, which you can easily walk to. We were fortunate to have Derek as our guide for a 1/2 day tour of Addo. We saw so many animals including a bush pig and a black backed jackal. Elephants, Cape Buffalo, all sorts of plains animals. Etta recommended Schotia Safaris for our afternoon activity since we had not seen any lions. We highly recommend Schotia as well, and if you can arrange to have Malcolm as your guide, he is the BEST. It was a delightful afternoon and evening, and we felt fortunate to see the lion pride on the move at sunset. All in all, a wonderful experience, brought to us by the wonderful folks at DungBeetle!
