About Addo Gateway Lodge
ADDO GATEWAY LODGE (Guest House) is a three star rated upmarket Bed and Breakfast accommodation establishment with a self-catering option and is situated in Cannonville, a safe and tranquil village on the banks of the beautiful Sundays River, only 35km East of Port Elizabeth, Nelson Mandela Bay, on the N2 in the Greater Addo area.
Never have the Elephants of the Addo Elephant National Park been so close to the Addo Gateway Lodge. Since the extension of the park in 2010 and the opening of the Addo South Gate near Colchester on the National Freeway N2 , where the Guesthouse is located herds of Elephants have migrated to the Southern part of the Park.
If you wish to escape from city life or the tensions of the concrete jungle, or to have a relaxed and safe holiday then this is the place for you to come and hang up your hat. Our location, here next to the beautiful Sundays River Estuary, can easily be described as peaceful, beautiful, tranquil and safe. Our lodge was the first B & B in this village and was built in 1997 and previously known as Rivers View Lodge.
It has a spectacular view of the river and sand dunes and is a mere 100m from the waters edge. The name was changed to Addo Gateway Lodge due to the easy access to the New South Entrance of the Addo Elephant National Park, (Camp Matyholweni) only a few km's from our village. We believe that this new entrance will one day be the Gateway to the Addo Elephant National Park once the coastal and marine sections of the park are better known.
