THE TRUE AFRICAN EXPERIENCE IN AUTHENTIC MUD HUTS
Situated in the heart of malaria-free Addo, on the doorstep of the Addo Elephant National Park, and close to the many private reserves of the Greater Addo region. Chrislin Addo Lodge is a tranquil retreat surrounded by Addo citrus farms in South Africa’s Eastern Cape.
Chris and Linda Pickels moved to Hermiston farm, Addo in 1989 and for nearly 10 years they farmed citrus before converting their farmhouse into Chrislin Bed and Breakfast. Addo developed into the holiday destination of choice for nature and wildlife lovers and the decision was made to build traditional African mud huts. Chris had the opportunity to use his knowledge of building with mud, developed on his parents farm. The first mud hut was completed in 2000.
Addo’s unique accommodation option proved extremely popular, so a few more were built. The following year Chris and David built more huts, the large swimming pool and Sneezewoods, a superb location for breakfasts and evening meals.
The tranquil Eastern Cape setting is described as paradise, by nature and bird lovers alike. Explore one of the many nearby Addo game reserves, or spend time relaxing alongside the pool and in the lounging lapa. Emphasis is placed on friendly service, comfort and delicious South African food. Attention to detail blends with true African decor and style, reflected in Chrislin’s unique natural architecture.
Experience true African accommodation when staying at Chrislin Addo Bed & Breakfast in traditionally built mud huts located on an eco-friendly farm, just 12km from the main gate of the Addo Elephant National Park.
The Eastern Cape and Addo Elephant Park offers some of the best nature and game viewing opportunities in South Africa.
