Fodor's Review

A private concession within the main section of Addo, this lodge has accommodations in spacious, luxurious tents with thick thatch canopies that are furnished in colonial-era antiques. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom with shower and a private deck with views. The lodge itself, a gracious old farmhouse dating from 1856, overlooks a watering hole, so it's possible to watch elephants, buffalo, and other animals from your lunch table or the veranda. Everything is understated

yet seriously stylish, including the swimming-pool area, and the cuisine and service are outstanding. There's no electricity (although solar lamps are more than adequate), and dinner is served by romantic candlelight, either on the veranda or in the splendid dining room. The lodge operates two game drives a day, and the Web site has interesting updates on the animals viewed on recent game drives.
