About Dungbeetle River Lodge

This is your entry point to the world famous Addo Elephant National Park located just outside Port Elizabeth as well as some of the finest game reserves in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa.

The owners/managers are qualified game/nature guides and offer a guided African safari experience into the Park and the Addo area in general. Although it is just a recommendation, allow at least three days to get to know the Addo Area.

With the Sundays River flowing at the foot of the lodge, sweeping river views from the lodge's decks offer a perfect backdrop to an all South African experience of big five game viewing, river activities including safe swimming, canoes or a river cruise.

Opposite the lodge is the famous Alexandria dune field : a hikers paradise of interesting facts, history, geology, flora and fauna. Watch the sun go down over the river and dune fields from the beach at the river mouth.

Enjoy relaxed riverside living in style and our safari experience away from the city.

The guest house has 5 up-market large, safari style en suite bedrooms, with old world furnishings, subtly decorated to give you a classy colonial/Africa feel, with all the luxuries expected of a 4 Star graded establishment.

A very substantial farmhouse breakfast, with fresh home baked breads, freshly made real fruit juice is served on our deck over looking Sundays River.

Addo South Gate/Colchester where Dungbeetle River Lodge is situated is only 3 minutes away from the Addo Elephant National Park southern entrance and 30 minutes away from the Port Elizabeth Airport on the N2.
