What a wonderful stay with amazing staff, great food and crisp room. Best of all Addo Elephant Park is virtually on the doorstep where we got the most beautiful pictures. My favorite was breakfast with the freshest ingredients and lots of love, and oh yes, the coffee is to die for.... Well done, you ticked all the boxes!

Thank you to the Old Drift staff for their friendly service and warm welcome! We enjoyed our stay and the new upgrade was very tastefully done. The garden is magnificent and a lot of care went into the planning of the layout.
Rooms are spacious and the aircon made the room nice an hot during the cold winter night.
Thank you once again!

In very cold weather the AC stopped working the last day, and it could not be fixed right away. That same night there was a big noisy party till very late. Cherry on top was the next morning before departure there were no hot water....

Thank you for your comment. I am devastated that after spending 4 nights with us, you were let down by a technological glitch with the malfunction of the aircon on your last night. We tried our best to get it up and running, but unfortunately we did not succeed. We hope the electric blankets kept you warm. Our top wine makers were here, demonstrating their new wines to put on our wine list that evening, everyone left just after 22h00. We can only hope the rest of your stay was satisfactory and you'll think back fondly to your stay in Addo.

The Guest Farm is pretty isolated, but it's worth it! We were 2 couples staying in a stand-alone building split into 2 rooms, each with a small terrace and a wall of glass. The rooms were beautifully decorated and very spacious.

You can wander around the lovely landscaped surroundings, and there's also a small pool with seating where we spent a relaxing afternoon talking to other guests.

Dinner at night was a small menu with a couple of choices in each course. The food was lovely though the service was a little slow.

It's such a peaceful area and only a short drive to Addo Elephant Park. We were really blown away by the high standard of accommodation in South Africa, and this was one that we really enjoyed.

Wow, thank you so much for taking the time to write this lovely review about us. Big complement to us that we stand out from all your accommodation while visiting South Africa. Our staff are all part of our team and are really proud of our Guest Farm. Juanita loves working in the garden and constantly doing changes, so compliments to her for our lovely gardens. We keep our menu small as we are not a restaurant but we want to give our guest the option to dine with us rather than driving at night. Maybe we can have a look and add some more options to our dinner menu :) We hope that you enjoyed the rest of your holiday and maybe we can see you again someday soon....
