Travellers' Choice
Addo Dung Beetle Guest Farm is situated 4 km from the Main Gate of the Addo Elephant National Park on a working Citrus Farm. The Citrus part of the Farm is approximately 250ha with an estimated 151 000 individual trees. We have 5 luxury chalets on a B&B basis, nestled on a Mountain top over looking the magnificent Zuurberg Mountains. Our 3 private wooden bush cabin with self-catering facilities are for those real nature lovers situated each on different levels on the hillside in our safari area. Walking distance from the main lodge and parking area. Each bush cabin has its own private out-side flushable toilet and out-side open air shower adjacent to the cabins. The Dung Beetle suites are situated in the succulent valley bushveld vegetation with no view as dung beetle are always hidden, thus leading to a beautiful tranquil surprise in the bush. Walking distance from the main lodge and parking area. The only, true dung beetle inspired accommodation in South Africa! We are ideal for couples, parent-breakaways, honeymooners and also for small group of 10 people sharing. In our Thatched Roof Lapa we prepare traditional South African mouthwatering set meals on the fire while you enjoy a sundowner with us. We only serve in-house dining on Mondays, Wednesdays and Friday; booking 2 weeks prior to arrival date is essential.

Excellent one night stay near Addo Elephant Park. Great breakfast and excellent service. Rooms are really big, with beautiful views on the valley and a real jungle outdoor shower! You can book your game ride directly with the hotel. Recommended!

The property is amazing and we had a beautiful nature view from our cabin. With the toilet and shower outside, next to the cabin it was sort of a camping experience. Very unique and calming to just sit on the Terrasse, cook outside, make a fire and just enjoy the beautiful scenery around. The safari we booked with them was amazing! We not only saw animals but also got to learn a lot about them and their wildlife in the addo Nationalpark. Absolutely friendly staff and the breakfast was great! Would totally recommend it!

Back for a long awaited return visit to the amazing Addo Dung Beetle Guest Farm. Stayed at luxury Chalet no.2 which is absolutely gorgeous and has an amazing view. The chalet has beautiful wooden furniture and stunning photographs on the wall. Really comfortable with bath, two showers including an outdoor one. Comfortable chairs to sit out on deck overlooking the mountains. Meticulous attention to covid 19 requirements. Felt totally safe. Highly recommend as well as in house game drives with Rod. Hopefully we will be back later this year!
