Great 4-night stay to visit the Addo Elephant Park. No loadshedding; generator took care of any electricity cuts. Friendly owners and if you love dogs the best ever B&B. 3 Labradors checked on a regular basis if we were OK. Will be back.

We experienced an armed robbery here, 5 masked men with steel pipes smashed the door and grabbed everything from our room. No guards to be seen. Besides a sorry phone call from the owners we just paid for the stay and have sought legal advice to compensate the loos of our belongings.

Response from Mike Tayler-Smith, Owner at Happy Lands B&B and Self Catering
Responded 12 Jun 2021
Even though this incident happened more than a year ago, we are still not able to express our absolute horror at it, especially with having all the security measures in place - electric fencing, remote controlled access, burglar bars, security gates and 3 alert dogs. The safety and security of our guests is our number one priority and we will always try and ensure that our guests have a safe stay as well as a happy one! We hope that the financial compensation given to you will ease the trauma of what you went through.

Found a lovely B&B in Addo. Thanks Mike & Nita for being super hosts. Your little spot in the valley is so peaceful, beautifully appointed rooms with everything that one needs. Well done for keeping going during these times, it's a noteworthy achievement. Top class breakfast and thanks for serving it earlier than usual. Thanks for serving me dinner aswell. I will be back again. Cheers for now.

The friendliest hosts in the most tranquil setting - we loved our stay at Happy Lands! Kids loved the pool and the friendly dogs. We loved the peace and quiet, the beautiful garden and the outdoor fire pit.
