Myself and the family stayed here for two nights and we all loved every minute, very friendly and helpful staff, great location for addo(5 min from the southern gate) and by far the best food in the area!

Very nice lodge to stay when you plan to visit Addo Elephant NP. It is a few minutes from the South gate. A nice breakfast is served and there is also a possibility to have dinner at the lodge which is very nice. Very friendly and helpful owners

The lovely rooms, friendly staff & atmosphere, delicious meals, all add up to a wonderful experience It's located close to Port Elizabeth, which was convenient for us as we flew from P E. The manager/owner is also the chef, and the meals were exotic, using local produce. All good.

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!!!

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!
