Anybody else who has travelled with kids though South Africa knows that booking family-sized accommodations that are safe, clean and affordable can be a challenge. Our stay at Happy Lands B&B was a welcome sanctuary on our route. Mike and Nita were wonderful hosts, and went out of their way to make this our best stay of our 3 week trip. Both of my kids said they would like to return here when they get a chance to return to the country. This was our family's first experience at a true B&B, and we hope future experiences will be as good as this. The rooms were very clean/comfortable and included the little things (such as a fridge, coffee and purified water) that make a stay just a little less stressful. The breakfast was excellent including fresh fruits from the farm and made to order eggs. The marmalade was so good, that my daughter made it her mission to make it all the way back home with a jar riding in her backpack. Thank you Mike and Nita for being such great hosts and we hope to visit again in the future!
Pros: Very clean and comfortable. Organic fruit and breakfast was excellent. Great conversation with the hosts and other travelers.
Location: The property is located a few kilometers from Addo Elephant National Park, but is close to the small community of Kirkwood that has a nice grocery/ATM
