Addo De Old Drift Guest Farm B & B

A short distance from the little village of Addo in South Africa's malaria-free Eastern Cape and only a 20 minute's drive from the renowned Addo Elephant National Park with its Big 5 and numerous other species, is found a variety of lovely accommodation at De Old Drift Guest Farm.

You are cordially invited to come and enjoy the tranquil environment at De Old Drift Guest Farm either as a break on your travels or as a base for your holiday. We are situated next to the Sunday River, which is convenient for guests who enjoy fishing.

You can sit on your private patio and experience the tranquility of nature. Sometimes Kudu, Nyala and Rooibok come down from the hills to drink at the river.

Short walking trails and a rich birdlife can be enjoyed. As mentioned, we are only 10 minutes drive from the Addo Elephant National Park. Game drives can be organized for you.

  • "Excellent. "

    15 October 2008

    "Lovely people who made us feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. Fresh lemons from the trees whenever we wanted. Lovely weather so we sunbathed in August!Only one restaurant in Addo, but it was good. Good though few other local attraction - crocs and baby lions, elephant park and the 3 hour horse ride was brilliant. Lovely thatched cottage set away from the main house was delightful. Own BBQ area. Two lovely dogs welcomed us every arrival, but they were very safe, obedient and well behaved."

    "FANTASTIC in every way. The accommodation was perfect, facilities brilliant,Liza and her husband were so accommodating and friendly, nothing was too much bother. Homemade breakfast muffins were particularly delicious. For their first year in business this couple have excelled themselves. As a family we holiday around the world 3-4 times a year and Olde Drifte has made it into our top 5 places where we have stayed. Excellent value for money. Very close to Addo Elephant reserve. Our 2 children, aged 3 and 7 loved the farm, they were able to roam round with freedom, enjoyed fishing and quad biking. We originally only booked 2 nights but extended our stay because it was such a perfect start to our holiday. We would definitely recommend to friends and can't wait to return. Excursions to Scotia safari, Daniels Cheetah Centre and Reptile Centre in Addo were FABULOUS.Our children and ourselves did not want to leave.Thank you so much"

  • "Fantastic"

    26 March 2008

    "The website probably does this place a disservice as it is a lovely establishment.It really is idyllic but a possible downside for some may be a lack of TV-which when the weather is poor - is something nice to fallback on.BUT-that probably does not suit the general selling point of the establishment!"

  • "Great value for money"

    10 March 2008

    "The farm was great, so peaceful with lovely modern pool area and restaurant with Lizl's great home cooking. The owners could not have been more friendly or helpful and our self catering cottage was very well equipped and great value for money.We even had our own 'bodyguards' in Timon and Pumba, the resident dogs who were a very cute pair!It only took about 20 mins to Addo park entrance from here. NOTE: If you are self catering drive to Lenmore Deli shop - just before the Addo park entrance, it's well stocked with fresh food and much nicer than the supermarket in the small town."
