Fort d’ Acre Reserve
is an exclusive thatched safari lodge situated at the mouth of the Great Fish River 25km form Port Alfred. Its unique positioning, with sweeping views of bush and coastline, invites the visitor to explore contrasting habitats of grassland bushveld, wild seaside and riverine forest.
Game drives into the reserve offer opportunities to view 19 different species including Cape Buffalo and Giraffe. Our stylish lodge is elegantly furnished capturing the spirit of Africa. The en-suite bedrooms all have sweeping bush and ocean views. The indoor dining area offers cozy evenings in winter with roaring fires.
Relax around the pool set in the indigenous gardens. Alternatively spend a day at the beach lapa relaxing in the shade while the rhythm of the tide lulls you to sleep. Enjoy the company of wildlife, dolphins and whales.
WiFi and DSTV available in the lounge.
Braai facilities available in the garden.
