Barefoot Addo Elephant Lodge

Barefoot Addo Elephant Lodge is a Boutique Safari Camp on the boundary of the Addo Elephant National Park, situated in the Greater Addo region and only two hours’ drive from Port Elizabeth.

Our fully fenced game reserve offers tranquillity to those wanting the experience of an intimate, exclusive lodge. We promise a wonderful safari holiday for the whole family. There is so much for you to discover.

 

  • Accommodation

Relax in our remarkably spacious, sophisticated, environmentally friendly suites, set against the tranquil backdrop of the Africa bush. Our private and exclusive units, built on elevated wooden decks, are designed to blend discreetly into the natural environment. Some nestle in the Yellowwood Forest, others are set on the hillside, offering breath-taking views of the reserve. And of course also very important: excellent beds, where body and mind find peace.

Barefoot Addo is delighted to unveil our newly built lodge entertainment area. The thatched lodge with signature stone cladded walls offers all the comforts of a luxury lodge and is an undisturbed retreat where you can regenerate your soul and tune into the sounds of nature. The view from the lounge / dining area is of the waterhole where monkeys come to play and our elephants come to quench their thirst. The lodge sets the stage for unforgettable African sunsets followed by evenings enjoying bush inspired cuisine and celebrating all that is ‘safari'.

 

  • Activities

Barefoot Elephant Lodge offers elephant encounter/walks, bird & botany garden walks and game drives.

 

  • Elephant encounters & walks

A once in a lifetime experience - at one with nature. Guests can enjoy an elephant encounter / walk through the diverse valleys, plains and forests of the bushveld, whilst delighting in the beauty of the flora and fauna. Walk with, observe & feed our majestic giants, Thaba, Mukwa and Duma in their natural environment among the trees and grassland. Enjoy in-depth interpretation with their trained handlers who will share their specialized knowledge into their behaviour and the area’s unique eco-system. Walk with them through the bushveld, ravine and forest habitat. At the conclusion of the walk, enjoy rewarding the elephants with their favourite treats.

 

  • Bird & botany garden walks

As traversing the bush on foot provides an entirely new perception into nature’s mysterious wonders, we offer a leisurely bush walk suited to young and old alike. The walking trails are conducted within our reserve and take place in the company of a knowledgeable guide. This valley bushveld region encompasses habitats ranging from semi-arid Karoo areas, across Fynbos-covered slopes which merge with impenetrable thickets and forests, extending into rolling grasslands which stretch all the way to the Sunshine Coast of the Eastern Cape. Blessed with this natural biodiversity the reserve is able to support a wide range of approximately 91 tree species, various birds of prey, canopy birds, song birds, nocturnal birds, ground birds and grassland birds.

 

  • Game Drives

Our experienced rangers create every opportunity to ensure exceptional viewing during your game drive on this 1000 hectare wildlife property. Excellent sightings, of amongst others, eland, waterbuck, blesbuck, wildebeest, giraffe and zebra can be enjoyed across the reserve’s biomes which are made up of fynbos, sub topical thicket and forest. Our reserve is situated in the pristine valleys of the Zuurberg Mountains bordering the Greater Addo Elephant National Park, regarded as Southern Africa’s most biologically diverse Park as it supports 5 of the 7 recognized biomes, or eco-regions of Southern Africa. Your guide will offer information on all wildlife, botany and also give you the historical background of the area.
