Serene getaway in the heart of Addo at Chrislin African Lodge

Chrislin African Lodge in Addo

Escape to the serenity of Chrislin African Lodge, situated in the heart of malaria-free Addo, 12km from the main gate of the Addo Elephant National Park. Enjoy everything this tranquil retreat has to offer – surrounded by Addo citrus farms in South Africa’s Eastern Cape.

A break-away for a few days to escape your daily routine for a few days is always, I repeat, always a good thing. The reasons behind this statement are endless.

Now more than ever before we have neglected our relationship with nature by most of us opting for an entirely urban styled life, but, here is the good news, there is no such thing as the wrong time to rekindle that love for your home town, your province, your planet.

Research has shown that spending time in nature, away from the many kinds of urban pollution, (pollution, traffic, light, the daily hustle and bustle), has incredibly positive effects on our short-term well-being and more importantly our long-term mental health. If anything, escaping to nature should actually be a regular part of your routine, one that will help you detox your mind, body and soul.

Get outdoors and fuel yourself with fresh air and energy, and spend some time surrounded by the magnificence of nature. Now is the perfect time to organize a weekend getaway. Sometimes reconnecting with yourself actually means restoring and strengthening the bonds you have with your loved ones.

Spending too much time immersed in work and responsibilities often leads us to put off family dinners and those invaluable bonding sessions of intimacy and closeness. If you haven’t had a moment to yourself for months, it’s high time you took some initiative.

Even just two days away from your regular routine can help you forget about all the sources of stress that you may face every day. After all, this is essential for us as humans to recognize our priorities and devote more time to the people that we love, cherish and care for.

Recently I personally felt that I needed to reconnect with nature, get away from all the madness going on in the world and just be. Addo has always been an all time favourite destination for me. I wanted to find wide open spaces, tranquility and the perfect home away from home for a few days. Chrislin African Lodge offers all of this and so much more.

The tranquil Eastern Cape setting itself is even described as paradise, by nature and bird lovers alike. Explore one of the many nearby Addo game reserves, or spend time relaxing alongside the well maintained sparkling pool or catch up on your favourite novel in the lounging lapa.

Emphasis is placed on the friendly service, comfort and delicious South African cuisine. Their attention to detail blends in perfectly with Chrislin’s true authentic African décor and style, giving this family owned lodge a unique natural architecture.

What I love about this incredible Addo based establishment is that they have so much to offer:

In-House Dining, Start the day with a delicious full farmhouse breakfast. Not in the mood to leave the tranquil guesthouse? Tasty dinners are available by prior arrangement.

Wi-Fi Internet, The complimentary 24-hour Internet access allows guests to keep in contact with the office, friends and family. The Wi-Fi access is available in the pool / lounge area, restaurant and in the accommodation huts.

Absolutely Superb Facilities, Enjoy the thatched lounge lapa next to the swimming pool while soaking up the sunshine or enjoying your favourite beverage. 

The Accommodation itself is comfortably decorated, authentic and well equipped to ensure your stay is as pleasant as possible.

A variety of Guided Tours, Crisscross Adventures, Chrislin’s in-house tour company, offer tours designed especially for guests who are looking for a different and unique experience in the Addo region. The enthusiasm and local knowledge of the CrissCross guides will ensure a fun and interesting time by all those who experience the tours. Highly recommended. 

In closing, when looking for a getaway, Chrislin African Lodge ticks all the boxes. You will leave feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to take on the world again.
