Somewhere deep in the Eastern Cape lies a sanctuary for elephants, as well as a sanctuary for weary holiday-makers. This sanctuary is called the Woodall Adoo Country House and Spa and they’ve got a range of safari and spa packages for you. We went ahead and scoped them out and found a package with the best of both worlds – including both pampering and animal watching. This is what we came up with…
Feel spoiled and take in the wildlife all in one go with Woodall Addo’s Elephant Safari and Health Spa Package. This option offers the most for your money this winter featuring a 2-night stay, dinner, and a safari tour. Of course, a 2-night stay can mean anything nowadays but we did say the most for your money, right? Well, this 2-night stay will land you in the crème de la crème of Woodall Addo rooms – the Luxury Room Suite. As a mater of fact, there is so much you get with this package that we couldn’t simply squeeze it all in one little paragraph. Here goes!
Upon your arrival Woodall Addo will thank you for your patronage with a drink. You will then be lead to the spa treatment of your choice – the hydrotherapy bath or sauna, or the steam shower that ha sheen infused with aromatherapy oils. These invigorating treatments are followed by a foot message for the neglected heels and toes. And then you will be kept busy with snacks while you wait for dinner to be prepared. And this wait may be long, but it is very much warranted as it is not any old meal.
Dinner at Woodall Addo for the Elephant Safari and Health Spa package is a mouthwatering six course rendezvous. This meal may consist of a range of the following items: Karoo venison, freshly caught East Coast fish, home-made stocks, freshly baked bread, and local cheeses. Many of the veggies and herbs will directly from Woodall Addo’s very own herb and vegetable gardens. And your Proudly South African wines will be brought to you from an underground cellar. From dinner you can choose to retire to your room or explore the grounds further.
Woodall Addo will have a jam-packed day 2 in store for you. The game drive to Addo National Elephant Park will take you on a breathtaking wildlife tour that will leave you in awe for an amazing 4.5 hour commencing at 8h30. This journey will include transfer, entrance to the game park, drinks, snacks, a private ranger and a ride in an open Landcruiser. This bundu bashing excursion will be followed by an African Wood Massage which entails a 90-minute olive oil and shea butter treatment. The rest of the evening will be much like the first day with sundowner snacks before another luxurious dinner.
