An exceptionally well-run and managed National Park, with an excellent road network and very good staff.

We had a nice stay, clean and tidy, although in the bush they could spray repellent in and around the chalet for the spiders and scorpions. We stayed in chalet no 12 and the bushes just need a bit of trimming down as we could see nothing in front of us.
Thanks to the staff that came and helped to jump start our vehicle one morning!

We had a wonderful surprise arriving. The accommodation was far beyond our expectations as everything was clean and worked with great feeling of being in the bush. Bird life abundant. Reception was helpful and informative. Will recommend it to others.

A most relaxing few days with friends. There were 8 of us visiting the camp. We had a family cottage each which we found extremely comfortable and well equipped.

We had a really pleasant time in the camp and in the park. Many thanks for the overwhelming impressions. After the barbeque dining my son fell asleep in a couple of seconds.

Quite a long way from the main game viewing area and not as "vibey" as Addo Main Camp, but perfect for a quiet getaway for people who prefer to be on their own. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and everything worked well.

Had a very good stay... The room cottage a cosy and quaint... I only wish that we didn't have to check out so early (9am) - 10am checkout would have been perfect. Otherwise had a great time. Thanks.

Addo Elephant Park Matyholweni Camp Reviewed by Richard Jamieson from South Africa on 24 March 2009 .
The reserve is beautiful and offers a large variety of animals. The cottage itself was very well designed and was pleasant to stay in. A criticism would be the very uncomfortable chairs. Also the steps leading down to the cottage are very steep, the path is badly worn down, in a word the first experience up to the cottage is sloppy and uncomfortable. My husband would have liked a chopping block for chopping the braai wood.
However, our stay was very pleasant, the staff at the office very helpful and we will certainly be back sometime.

If there had've been a pool at the south camp I would have rated it excellent as the accommodation was lovely and met all our needs. Many thanks.

The accommodation was good. The fact that the camp was a half day closed was terrible because we could not do anything, and that was because they were shooting pigs. Why could they do not that at night in stead of during daytime? We found this very strange.
In our bungalow the toilet was broken for two days before they fixed it.

SA National Parks acommodation is always of a high standard. We were extremely comfortable in our chalet,which was very tastefully designed and furnished.
We were a little disappointed with the actual location of the camp which ie 16km from the main viewing area. Couldn't understand the rationale behind the location of the camp.

Only problem when the rain came, the rain came running through the door from the top, there was no step to stop it. We also thought it was a lot closer to the main gate than we thought. Not a problem at all.
Would highly recommend it & would stay there again.

Everything was really great, the experience was wonderful. Our only suggestion for improvement is that the gardens need attention - weeding and mowing of lawns.
Your staff were very friendly and helpful and all accommodation was spotless.
