Fort d Acre Reserve is an exclusive thatched safari lodge situated at the mouth of the Great Fish River 25 km form Port Alfred.  Its unique positioning, with sweeping views of bush and coastline, invites the visitor to explore contrasting habitats of grassland bush veld, 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.

Latest Reviews
I highly recommend Fort d'Acre. It is extremely good value for money, the accommodation is of a very high standard, the hospitality and service is excellent and the location is very special; offering both a bushveld and sea side experience at the same venue. What more can you want?
