Whether you are traveling for Business or Pleasure, Addo Riverbank on Sunday's is a haven where you will relax with breathtakingly beautiful views over the Sunday's River. Situated within the Colchester Section of the Addo Elephant Park and a 15-minute drive from the new Coega IDZ or Harbour.
It is a 5-bedroom home and two of the rooms on the side of the house was converted into self-catering units, each sleeping four people and we all share the swimming pool at the back of the main house. Each unit has its own private entrance with queen size bed and double sleeper couch for children in the lounge/kitchen area with stunning views over the river. If you are traveling for Business, then we can offer a Continental Breakfast with a packed lunch. If you are traveling for pleasure and do not feel like cooking your own food then you can take a relaxing stroll in the morning on the Riverbank along the Sundays River to the Taste of Africa Restaurant which is a walking distance away and for lunch you can do a braai in one of the picnic areas of the Addo Elephant Park and for Dinner you can stop over at the Grunters Pub & Grub who's well known for their quality steaks.
Both units are on the side of the main house and as you walk into the downstairs apartment which we call the Kingfisher Unit, you are welcomed with your own private braai/barbecue area with table and chairs outside overlooking the river. As you enter the unit there is a slipper bath next to the kitchenette where your loved one can prepare dinner while you are sipping on a glass of bubbly in the bath and admiring the view. In the kitchen you will find enough plates, cutlery and glasses for 4 people. There is a bar fridge with microwave, two plate stove, toaster, kettle and steamer for those who prefer to cook the healthy way. As you walk into the bedroom there is a toilet on your left with a shower on your right. In the bedroom itself there is a queen size bed with extra bedding for the double sleeper couch and TV in the room with live streaming channels like DSTV and Netflix.
Fish Eagle Unit
We call the upstairs apartment the Fish Eagle Unit and as you walk up the flight of stairs you are welcomed by a outside deck with round table and chairs from where you can admire the amazing views over the river with a private braai/barbecue.
