Highly recommend Happy Lands Farmstay. Convenient proximity to Addo Elephant Park. Hosts Mike and Nita are warm and welcoming and make every guest feel like a valued family member. The accommodation is gorgeous and very comfortable. Comfortable beds and spacious bathrooms. Lush, shady garden and a swimming pool to enjoy after a morning spent doing game drives in Addo. Self-catering and braai facilities available but dinner and breakfast also available if you prefer a catered option. We will be definitely be going back.

We spent an amazing weekend at this lovely clean guest house in the most beautiful part of the Sundays River Valley. We enjoyed walking to the zipline through the citrus fields. Mike and Nita were the best hosts ever and we will definitely visit there again.

This was one of our stops from the Garden Route back to Joburg. Happy Land Farmstay was an incredible experience. We went fro a self drive in the Addo National Park but mostly we wanted to stay on the serene and scenic property to swim, braai and mostly relax in the beautifully decorated room with a king size bed. And the breakfast we had was incredible. Would stay for longer if we could.

The greeting we received upon arrival was a warm, friendly one. Our children loved the room the dogs and the little park. We loved the space and the beautiful setting. It has a non-commercialized, family feel to it which is exactly what we needed. The get away was a surprise from my Husband for us all, and a very spontaneous one at that, but even though it was booked at very short notice, everything was there that we needed and was spotlessly clean. It is close to Addo Elephant park, which was only a short drive away (just be prepared for non-tarred roads, but that is common in S.A) I cannot praise it enough and will defiantly be staying there again. In fact we are booking our friends in as a surprise for their 10th Wedding Anniversary.

It was a great place to use as our base when we did the Addo 76 km! Clean, great shower and nice pool facilities as well to celebrate running the race! Loved the dogs, made us feel like we were at home! Definitely use them again!

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.

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.
