This was our last stop on our trip to South Africa , where we had enjoyed staying in some beautiful guest houses. Our initial impression of the guest hose was that it was a little tired. We were welcomed by one of the staff as Etta and Derek were out on game drives. The lady was very efficient , showed us to our rooms and offered drinks etc , then booked us on a nearby safari park trip and dinner , which we thoroughly enjoyed.
The rooms both overlooking the river with nice balconies were decorated in an African theme , which initially felt a bit oppressive , however we did get used to the style and the beds were very comfortable .
The breakfast was very good , the freshly made fruit juices and breads are lovely.
Derek took us on game drive into addo park. He was an excellent guide and we loved the trip.
We did enjoy our stay here , Derek and Etta are great hosts and want guest to enjoy their stay but it does feel as though you have been transported back a couple of decades, but if you want to relax this is no bad thing. If you are someone who needs to be in constant communication with the outside world via wi-fi etc this is not the place for you as wi-fi although advertised is in reality not available, and you are not the type of guest they are catering for.
