Accommodation

Kabouga Cottage

Surrounded by mountains in the rugged Kabouga area of the Park, Kabouga Cottage sleeps six people in two bedrooms (with one bed in the open-plan lounge).

Bedding, cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils provided with gas stove, gas fridge, hot water geyser and solar-powered lights. There is no electricity. An old reservoir serves as a swimming pool for those hot days in the valley. Walking trails are easily accessible from the house. There is an outside braai site and visitors must provide their own wood.

The cottage is accessible with high clearance vehicles only and is located near the town of Kirkwood, approximately 45 minutes to one hour’s drive from Addo Rest Camp. The Kabouga area is not home to the Big Five.

Tariffs: R445 per night for first two people plus R160 for each additional adult and R88 for each additional child (under 12) per night. Note: these tariffs exclude conservation fees per night. Two additional people can be accommodated in the house (i.e. eight all together) if own mattresses and bedding are provided.

Mvubu Campsite

Situated on the banks of the Sundays River, Mvubu Campsite provides 6 stands with a maximum of 4 people per stand. One hot water shower (paraffin-powered) and one flush toilet are available. There are braai sites and visitors must provide their own firewood. Water for washing is available but visitors should take their own drinking water. Canoes are available for use on the Sundays River – please contact the ranger on duty. Swimming and fishing is allowed in the Sundays River but please note that hippos do occur in the river and could be potentially dangerous.

The campsite is accessible with high clearance vehicles only and is located near the town of Kirkwood, approximately 45 minutes to one hour’s drive from Addo Rest Camp. The Kabouga area is not home to the Big Five.
