The Stable Cottages
Addo Elephant National Park
Set in 4 hectares of expansive lawns, the Stable Cottages are only 8 km from the entrance to the Addo Elephant National Park.
The Addo Elephant National Park is one of the world's great conservation success stories and embraces one of the highest concentrations of big game in Africa and thus offers some wonderful game viewing opportunities.
In addition to the famous elephants of Addo there are also lion, buffalo, black rhino, hyena, jackal and a variety of antelope species. Of the smaller animals the surricates and the flightless dung beetle are of great interest. Over 150 species of birds have been recorded in the area.
Morning and afternoon guided game drives into Addo can be arranged (at an extra cost), otherwise guests staying here can easily drive themselves into the Park.
When not exploring Addo, in front of the cottages is a large swimming pool, as well as the trendy Wine Bar and Farm Cafe where guests have their meals. The Wine Bar and Farm Cafe has (as the name implies) a fabulous wine selection - the menu is a la carte, serving great contemporary country cuisine for lunch and dinner.
The very spacious Cape Country style cottages all have reeded ceilings and private verandah. Two of them are family suites with a separate interleading bedroom for the children.
All the cottages are fully air-conditioned and heated and have stocked mini bars and tea/coffee making facilities.
The Cottages really are great value for money, offering comfort, style and plenty of space.
