Description

 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.

 The lodge has a beautiful view of the dunes and river across the road. This beautiful destination is well placed to all major Eastern Cape Game Reserves and is only 4km away from the NEW SOUTH ENTRANCE to the Addo Elephant National Park, CAMP MATYHOLWENI. Elephants, Lions, Antelope, Zebra and many more animals now have complete access to the NEW SOUTHERN SECTION of the park.

 Apart from our 3 bedroom lodge, we also offer a 2 bedroom cottage and is now also APD APPROVED, having a full wheelchair accessible double room for the physically disabled.

 About Us

 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.

 Cannonville/Colchester was a very busy place in the mid 1800s and early 1900s, due to the only pont/punt on the main route between Grahamstown and Port Elizabeth, ferrying people, oxen, carts and food across the Sundays River. 
The original remains of the pont are still visible on the western banks of the river near the N2 bridge in Cannonville. The pont sank in 1874, having been washed away down the river during a great storm. In 1875 a new and bigger pontoon was launched. Two months later, this pontoon was also taken down the river after the river rose suddenly and was not used again. It took a battle of 35 years to get the Government to build a proper bridge across the river. The bridge was commenced in 1884 and opened on 5th March 1895. It was named the Mackay Bridge, in honour of John Mackay who's efforts resulted in its construction. This bridge was constructed at a cost of 14 000 pounds and made entirely of steel and iron brought all the way from Sheffield in England.

 We (Maggie & Les) took over the lodge in January 2006 and are ecstatic to have found this little jewel on the golden banks of the Sundays River.

 With a dream come true, Les also committed himself to establish a ferry cruiser on the river and on the 14th April 2007 THE SUNDAYS RIVER FERRY was launched. Come and enjoy a leisurely cruise both up or down stream to the river mouth. Enjoy the spectacular views, river, sea and dunes.

 To promote tourism and to be able to accommodate all our guests with warmth and a friendly welcome, we uphold and abide by our motto: Where Strangers Become Friends

 

WE WELCOME YOU !!!!
