Thanks Nicole for a lovely warm, peaceful and much needed stay at Fort D'Acre. The stay was amazing and look forward to staying again, hopefully in the winter! Please thank your staff for setting up the lovely braai for us, we really enjoyed being able to braai ourselves and catch up over a glass of wine in front of the fire. Keep well till the next time....

I spent two nights in this place and I was gushing to the managers of how excellent their establishment is. This private reserve is just over 20 km from the town of Port Alfred. If you want peace and quiet, this is the place for you. What impressed me the most is how you get to see the ocean from your bed, and you also get to spot some wild animals while seated in your room. The views from my room were to die for. The lodge itself is beautiful, recently renovated. My room was beautiful, with a large and comfortable bed. I had two very restful nights. The room has a bath tub and a large shower. There is a separate toilet. My room also had a mini lounge with a mini bar fridge, and a balcony - also overlooking the ocean. The court yard, with a sparking pool is also very beautiful. Then I went for a game drive, and I was blown away. I saw so many animals, it was just an incredible experience that I would recommend to every visitor to the lodge. Then food, the selection is not large, but it is tastey, high quality stuff. On both day, they baked muffins, savoury on the first day and sweet on the second day. I enjoyed their breakfast. I asked the host to prepare dinner for me on both nights. Lovely butternut soup with warm rolls and salad on the first night, and delicious pizza on the second night. both these dinners were reasonably priced, and there is nothing bettwer than enjoying home cooked meal in their cosy dinning room, next to fire place. The only challenge is that you get to share a dining table with other guests. i think this is a great idea to create that homely feel, and for the guests to get to know each other. However, I don't think the couple who was there at the same time with me were comfortable to share a table with me. Then there is the host, Nicole who was gracious and made me feel at home. There is an effort to make guests feel welcome and at home. She is truly remarkable. Other management and staff were also very efficient and good. I have stayed in so many places accross the world, but I can say that this lodge is one of my firm fovourites. I had a truly great time and I will return many times. I highly recommend this place.

We stayed for only three days, but we should have stayed longer. Beautiful lodge, staff friendly and game drives a pure joy. We will definitely visit Ford D'Acre again in the near future. I can recommend this lodge for a relaxing breakaway
