We had a lovely stay at the lodge. John the manager and his wife offered great service. Unfortunately we were only there for one night. We will definitely stay again when we visit Addo again. Make sure you to use the outdoor shower in your room. It is amazing!!!

It was a wonderful experience, from the moment you drove through the gate, our hosts were superb. Dinner was mouth watering and I will always go back just simply for the food. Thank you for giving us an amazing stay and keep up the stunning hospitality!

We stayed one night at this lodge. It is close to one of the exits of Addo. Welcomed by one of the owners, giving us a clear and friendly tour of the facilities. We did not meet the other owner, only seen in a distance behind the computer. The interior of the rooms is very nice, all rooms have a...

Very comfortable; good food; pleasant ambience. We were on our way to visit Bathurst and wanted to break our journey and spend some time in Addo Elephant Park. Elephants Footprint fitted the bill admirably!

Modern, attractive, African style lodge in very close proximity to the park. Lovely rooms and communal areas. This is a very friendly lodge. The breakfast had a vast range of cold items with hot items freshly cooked to order. In the evening there is a buffet style dinner with excellent choices all beautifully cooked, and introduced by the chef. The...

Modern African style lodge in very close proximity to the southern entrance of Addo. Having also spent 4 nights in Addo on my next visit I will just stay here. Being able to have a substantial breakfast then be in the park in minutes was far superior than staying at the Addo end. An amazing buffet dinner awaits you on...

Where? Outside Addo Elephant Park, but very close by Ambiance: quiet place, nice and tasteful decorated very spacious rooms with outdoor showers (as well as bathroom inside) , high ceilings and a typical straw-roof create a nice atmosphere and help cooling the rooms down We felt very comfortable here!

We spent the most wonderful two nights at Elephants Footprint lodge- everything was absolutely first class, from the luxurious and very comfortable bedroom with the amazing outdoor rock shower to the most delicious meals freshly cooked and served by husband and wife team, John and Carin. Every little detail has been so well thought out and the whole place is...
