You will find Addo Dung Beetle Guest Farm resting on its own mountaintop near the heart of the Sundays River valley, the largest Citrus producing area in the Cape Province and overlooking the beautiful Zuurberg Mountains.
Our five luxury chalets are found on a working citrus farm only 4 km away from the main gate of the Addo Elephant National Park.
The working citrus farm on the property is called "Miskruier" (Afrikaans for Dung Beetle) as the owner manages a conservation project with the purpose to breed Circellium bacchus dung beetles and reintroduce them back into nature. Also to create an awareness of conservation outside of a National Park.
Whether you are looking for a luxurious holiday or fun-filled adventure, you are sure to have a memorable stay in our beautiful part of the country.
Chalets are elegantly decorated and equipped with air-conditioners with a heating option.
All the bedside tables and headboards are made from a combination of local wood species found in the area, like Yellow Wood, Oak, Sneeze Wood, and Black Wood.
The Sneeze Wood chandeliers found throughout the chalets and in the Lapa are made out of old fence posts that were in use a few years ago, and are termite prufe.
Bathrooms are en suite and have indoor and outdoor showers to suit your needs. There are also procupine quills lamp shades found in the bathrooms and the lapa which were handmade by the owner.
