We had a great three-days stay with Derek and Etta; they are super hosts, very knowledgeable and great ambassadors for the whole area, not just the Addo. We'd got there after quite a long drive and, with Derek and Etta out on park tours, one of the staff greeted us. While this was fine, we were just left feeling a little anxious about our choice. However, we had no reason to be concerned, breakfast is excellent and Etta tries to oblige with whatever you request. The lodge itself is nicely styled in African decor etc and our room (Africa Suite) had a lovely terrace overlooking the river. The overall setting is lovely, right on the river but, given that this is only B&B, the evening dining choices in the neighbourhood extend to the local pub. Now, the fillet is excellent and the host there charming, but it really felt like we'd stumbled into a 1970s Midwest USA roadhouse. Again don't let first impressions fool you. Minor point as most people probably only stay 2 or 3 days and might well eat on the game reserve one of those....
