    Drift off at De Old Drift

    We booked this place online as somewhere to base ourselves to explore Addo and surrounding area and the pictures don’t do it justice. From the moment we drove up the lemon grove drive I knew I’d made a good choice. An oasis of calm after a hectic drive down the garden route, two ponds frame your entrance whilst weaver bird nests hang from surrounding trees. A beautiful setting near the Sundays River where the reception and restaurant look out to the welcoming swimming pool. The staff are so welcoming and helpful. My small family and I all felt our stay there was particularly special.

    Hidden Gem!

    Arrived late in the evening and was greeted by a very warm welcome by the lady at the reception. Really appreciated how they make arrangements for us to have dinner too. Great place and strongly recommended. Breakfast and dinner were both wonderful.

    Nach langer Suche im Internet haben wir uns für diese Guestfarm entschieden. Sie hat unsere Erwartungen übertroffen: - sehr freundliches Personal, das auf alle Wünsche gern eingeht - reichhaltiges Frühstück - alles sehr sauber, Pool zwar klein (nicht zum langen Schwimmen) aber herrlich für eine Abkühlung - Lunch und Dinner auf Anfrage erhältlich und sehr schmackhaft - absolut ruhige Lage, dicht am Addo Nationalpark (Safaritour wird angeboten und ist sehr empfehlenswert, Danke Igna) - viel Natur, aber trotzdem wenig Insekten (Räume absolut tierfrei) Wer ein nettes,familiäres Ambente sucht, ist hier gut aufgehoben.

    Idealer Ausgangspunkt für Addo Elephant Nationalpark und Schotia Private Game Reserve; Game Drives können über De Old Drift direkt gebucht werden. Nette kl. Häuschen als Zimmer, schöner Gartenanlage und leckeres Essen.
