We stayed for one night and was taken super good care of the crew working here. Place is very clean and tidy. Food great and service level fantastic. Did the morning safari tour with them which also was great. If you goin to addo park, you come to the right place :)

8/10 Very good

The property and gardens were all beautifully kept, and dinner was delicious. It is a bit out of the way if you're not there to explore the Addo National Elephant Park.

Drift off at De Old Drift
We booked this place online as somewhere to base ourselves to explore Addo and surrounding area and the pictures don’t do it justice. From the moment we drove up the lemon grove drive I knew I’d made a good choice. An oasis of calm after a hectic drive down the garden route, two ponds frame your entrance whilst weaver bird nests hang from surrounding trees. A beautiful setting near the Sundays River where the reception and restaurant look out to the welcoming swimming pool. The staff are so welcoming and helpful. My small family and I all felt our stay there was particularly special.

Hidden Gem!
Arrived late in the evening and was greeted by a very warm welcome by the lady at the reception. Really appreciated how they make arrangements for us to have dinner too. Great place and strongly recommended. Breakfast and dinner were both wonderful.

Difficult to improve on this place
De Old Drift Guest Farm is a wonderful place to stay. We stayed for three nights in a self catering unit but ate at the restaurant as well. The food wasv excellent. It is about 25 minutes drive to Addo National Park. We took a game drive with Lindo in the farms safari vehicle. Very informative and worthwhile. One h Night we went on one of the parks night drives. We got within 30 feet of two male lions amazing There are other restaurants locally if you want a change of scene. We went to Addo Wildlife which was great, and a neat place for kids

2/10 Poor

Terrible - never again
Informed would arrive late, called them but no answer. Had to wait outside the gate till another guest arrived and opened the gate and waited in car park till someone saw us and gave a room key. Bathroom is a hazard, sheets not clean, worst part was no heating as the AC would not heat and we froze and could not sleep at night. AVOIDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD! Many other better options in the area.
