Great Location, Safe, beautiful views”

This hotel is right next to Addo Elephant Park which makes it a great stop to explore the park from. The room had everything needed and the small and clean swimming pool was a refreshing dip at the end of a days driving. They also organise safari's in the park if you don't have your own car/would rather go with a guide. The hosts are lovely and very friendly. The breakfast was perfect.
