Reviews of De Old Drift Guest Farm


"'"

(South Africa) Cindy Hoffmann | 1 April 2016

"We enjoyed our stay. Comfortable, clean accommodation - great service especially from Nandipa. But not sure it is really the 4 star accommodation it is listed as.

Being billed as such sets one up for initial disappointment. I'd rate it as perfectly adequate 3 star accommodation.Ê

"Lovely people who made us feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. Fresh lemons from the trees whenever we wanted. Lovely weather so we sunbathed in August! Only one restaurant in Addo, but it was good. Good though few other local attraction - crocs and baby lions, elephant park and the 3 hour horse ride was brilliant. Lovely thatched cottage set away from the main house was delightful. Own BBQ area. Two lovely dogs welcomed us every arrival, but they were very safe, obedient and well behaved."

"FANTASTIC in every way. The accommodation was perfect, facilities brilliant, Liza and her husband were so accommodating and friendly, nothing was too much bother. Homemade breakfast muffins were particularly delicious. For their first year in business this couple have excelled themselves. As a family we holiday around the world 3-4 times a year and Olde Drifte has made it into our top 5 places where we have stayed. Excellent value for money. Very close to Addo Elephant reserve. Our 2 children, aged 3 and 7 loved the farm, they were able to roam round with freedom, enjoyed fishing and quad biking. We originally only booked 2 nights but extended our stay because it was such a perfect start to our holiday. We would definitely recommend to friends and can't wait to return. Excursions to Scotia safari, Daniels Cheetah Centre and Reptile Centre in Addo were FABULOUS.

Our children and ourselves did not want to leave.

Thank you so much"

"The farm was great, so peaceful with lovely modern pool area and restaurant with Lizl's great home cooking. The owners could not have been more friendly or helpful and our self catering cottage was very well equipped and great value for money.

We even had our own 'bodyguards' in Timon and Pumba, the resident dogs who were a very cute pair!

It only took about 20 mins to Addo park entrance from here. NOTE: If you are self catering drive to Lenmore Deli shop - just before the Addo park entrance, it's well stocked with fresh food and much nicer than the supermarket in the small town.

"Very good"

(United States of America) Niels Blankenburg | 10 February 2008

If Im ever in the area Id gladly come by again.

Delano was also our game driver and he was very enthusiast about the park Addo.

We also had a very good time during the morning safari and we took our breakfast while we were looking at the lions. He told us a lot about the animals and the plants.

"De Old Drift Guest Farm was the relaxing part of our holiday. But don't get me wrong it was also extremely exciting and fun also. We went on two Safari Drives with Delano (The Host) were we seen heaps of animals, including the major ones, and we had the best time. He is very enthusiastic and passionate about the animals and has great knowledge of them. Lize packs a yummy food hamper to have along the way also. All this together makes for a fun, exciting and informative Safari Drive. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable in the self contained unit. We had a Braai every night, then just sat outside in front of the fire and watched the sun go down over the cliff, so relaxing. Lize and Delano are great hosts, always there to help when you need them. We felt like family. We would stay here again in a heartbeat and will recommend them to others."

Delano took us for an early morning start in his new game viewing vehicle and we were rewarded by seeing some of the not so common wild residents of Addo nature reserve. Delano is certainly well informed and enthusiastic about the wild life and their habits. No doubt we will stay here again when we next visit Addo "
