Hi Gary,

The two guesthouses as well as the rondawels have views of the waterhole.

If you don't get one of these units, you can always walk to the viewing platform. The camp is outside the fence so it is safe to walk around at night and the waterhole is floodlit.

Location: Back "home"?!...........
We stayed at Addo from 01.05.05 to 04.05.05.
And with this posting I would like to say thank you. We had a wonderful time.
This was the second time that we have been to Addo but the first time that we stayed in the Park itself.
We had a very nice Chalet and even saw a huge herd of buffs on our last morning from our veranda(!!).
All the staff was very friendly and helpfull :clap:
Everything was very well catered for and the shop was excellent equipped.
We really enjoyed beeing in Addo Elephant NP and already looking forward to our return maybe in 2007....
So once again thank you very much!!!!

Hi

The new road is scheduled to be completed by end of November but we are not 100% sure when we will be able to make the gate operational. There is a possibility it could be open by December, but probably more likely beginning of 2006.

We will be able to confirm later on this year.

Hi,
As we are Kruger people, (yah, arriving Croc Bridge today 2 weeks time) we have never stayed at Addo. We have decided to go there in December. Could someone please tell me what the cottages are like at Darlington Dam and do they also fall under Sanparks?
Thanks,
Wendy

It is lovely. The Safari Tents you are staying in Loams are the ones in the main camp?

The cottages at Darlington are quite basic accommodation with four beds, a small kitchen and a shower and toilet. There is also a braai site.

You need a 4x4 vehicle to appreciate staying at Darlington and should combine staying there with the 4x4 trail. You can also fish on Darlington Dam if you wish.

Booking takes place through the park. Email quezettevd@sanparks.org or Tel: 042 2330556.

Thanks Megan. I did email but have not had a reply as yet. I was given a number to phone but get voicemail and "Riaan" doesn't return calls, :( so I think we will stay in Addo. So far I have three nights. Hopefully there will be cancellations.

We will be going on our Honeymoon to Addo in December. First time I have been and I can't wait. We are booked in a Safari Tent arr :lol: :22 Dec, dep :cry: :27 Dec.

@ Addo Elephant:
Is it possible to request a specific Safari Tent? If not, then is it possible to bribe someone cause it's my honeymoon AND I am a forum member :wink: :?: :pray:

@ Everyone Else & Addo Elephant:
From the map, Safari Tent #1 looks like the best. It seems to have a view of the waterhole as well as right up against the fence. Does anyone have an opposing view? I would love to hear them. Also does anyone have pictures of the different Safari Tents & their views? Could you post them please?

Thanks guys!

Loams

Hello, we are a Belgian family, 2 adults and 3 children.
We would like to stay at Addo in July. But most most of the accomodation is booked. Only a few chalets are free.
So, do we need to book 2 chalets or is it possible to put an additional bed in 1 chalet?

THX,
Veerle

Hi there and welcome, Sanparks are very understanding when it comes to children. We have never had a problem in any of the parks with them puting a mattress on the floor for a little one. This needs to be booked in advance and the additional fee added to your tarriff but is usually done with a smile.

Most tarriffs are worked out at a two person rate and then additional fees for extra persons. Childrens tarriff is less than adults.

I would mail them and ask but I don't see a problem.
