De Old Drift Guest Farm, a short distance from the little village of Addo in South Africa’s malaria-free Eastern Cape Province.
De Old Drift is a working Citrus Farm, one of the smallest but most peaceful Farms in the area. Take a slow stroll through the orchards when the trees are in blossom and the smell of citrus permeates the air, venture down to The Sundays River, only a short 200metres walk away, where Njala, Kudu’s and Rooibok can be seen on the ridge of the mountain or relax around the pool after an exciting day of adventures and game viewing in the Elephant Park. We are also pleased to offer our guests a Private Game Viewing Drive through Addo National Elephant Park.
De Old Drift offers a variety of comfortable and spacious furnished rooms, with the option of Self-Catering and Bed and Breakfast Accommodation. All our rooms are tastefully furnished with close attention to detail. Enjoy the peace and quiet on your patio overlooking the garden and mountains with only the sounds of nature at your doorstep. The furniture in the rooms have all been crafted by hand and made from Oregon pine – wood that was salvaged from the original “Drifthouse Inn”. As you arrive, the welcoming aroma of lavender fills the air, and butterflies compliment your arrival.
Guided Tours in the Addo Park
This tour departs daily from De Old Drift Guest House and is offered specially for guests staying with us. The tour is done in our open safari vehicle which takes 9 people only. Please book prior to avoid disappointment. The tour is very popular so we cannot guarantee any open spaces without a booking. As the Addo Park was started specifically in 1931 to save the Addo elephants from extinction we concentrate on finding as many elephants as possible. We will also search for any other interesting animals along the way and talk about the vegetation too. Our guides are well experienced and very knowledgeable.
