Sundune Guesthouse

Retreat to Riverside Bliss: Your Ultimate Accommodation Along the Sundays River and only 5 minutes from the Addo Elephant National Park

TAKE NOTE: Our Guest House will not experience loadshedding problems during your stay, as we have inverters.

Nestled a mere 3km from the Matyholweni or South Entrance to the Malaria Free Addo Elephant National Park and an effortless 40km drive from Port Elizabeth, our idyllic Addo Elephant Park Accommodation awaits.

Sundune Guest House graces a tranquil setting on the banks of the Sundays River in Colchester village, offering a haven for water sports and nature enthusiasts alike. The ancient dunes that stretch alongside the river, estimated to be 6000 to 10 000 years old, rest upon even older compacted dunes that could date back as far as 100 000 years.

Sundune Guest House finds it important to recycle and water harvest as part of our ethics. There is also no need to worry about load shedding when staying with us, as we offer WiFi and load shedding lighting during these times.

With Sundune Guest House as your base, access to a plethora of activities and attractions in and around Addo is a breeze, making it the perfect launchpad to the Garden Route and Sunshine Coast. The Greater Addo area, recognized as a premier holiday destination, promises exceptional game viewing, fishing, leisurely beach walks, boating, and kayaking. The region’s delightful climate complements its magnificent sandy beaches, and the beach via private access invites you to stroll along the warm Indian Ocean shoreline for miles, where playful whales and dolphins may make an appearance.

Colchester presents an array of options for activities, expertly arranged by Sundune Guest House. Embark on an early morning game drive in the Addo Elephant Park, take a leisurely walk along the endless white sands, via a private entrance, or cast a fishing line in the afternoon, culminating in a sunset toast with friends on the lush rolling lawn.

The Sundays River offers an array of experiences, from canoeing, sandboarding, and river cruises to angling trips, fishing, bird watching, and exploring the unspoiled sandy beaches. The renowned Nukakamma Canoe Trail is also at your fingertips, all thoughtfully arranged through Sundune Guest House.
