"Second Visit not as good"

"Elephants Footprint Lodge is a comfortable small Lodge with easy access to Addo Elephant Park. This was my second visit, and although the rooms still remain clean and comfortable, I found that the quality of the food was not what it was a year ago. Room for improvement were that is concerned. I would definitely consider staying again, but should the food not improve it will be my last stay. The proximity to Addo is the big advantage."

"Above expectations, just fantastic, 5 star accommodation. Geoff is real nice guy - you would not get much more friendliness from someone else."
