Dungbeetle River Lodge is situated on the banks of the Sundays River alongside the Addo Elephant National Park entrance. There are 6 large, safari type en-suite bedrooms, with old world furnishings and subtly decorated to give you a classy colonial African feel.
Each room has a television and honesty fridge. An expansive deck overlooking the river and sand dunes is an ideal to relax, enjoy your breakfast and take in the beauty of the tranquil setting.
The malaria-free Addo Elephant National Park is one of the most scenic National Parks in South Africa, with rolling green hills covered in thick, lush vegetation, most of it evergreen, so it is attractive at whatever time of year you visit.
Today, it is home to over 450 elephants, who roam freely among the 125,000 hectare reserve alongside the rare black rhino, zebra, kudu and red hartebeest, as well as over 400 bird species – and not forgetting the unique flightless dung beetle, found almost exclusively in Addo.
Addo has the greatest density of elephant per square kilometre in Africa, and offers some wonderful elephant viewing opportunities.
