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 experience, you are sure to have a memorable stay in our beautiful part of the country.
