Priscilla and Noel have not needed to learn any tricks about how to host. They are just naturally hospitable people who make you feel instantly at home and relaxed. When I arrived, lunch was waiting on the table and, with a home-made lemon drink in hand, I already felt part of the furniture. They have been living in their farmhouse for 40 years now – although the land it stands on has been in the family’s hands since 1894 – and have made some adjustments to make the rooms all the more comfortable for their guests. The latest of these - three new large rooms, each with its private entrance - are in Garden Cottage. Two have outdoor showers and all have air-con. Their citrus farm is found on the friendly dirt roads between Addo and Kirkwood. And when I say friendly, I mean locals waved hello to me all the way there! The garden, surrounded by citrus groves, blooms with bougainvillaea and an abundance of other flowers and trees. The tiled swimming pool and an enormous tipuanu tree are two of the gardens’ greatest assets, while vine-shaded terraces are the perfect places of repose after a rendezvous with the elephants in Addo (only 20 minutes away). When staying at Lupus Den you can be a tourist by day out in the parks and feel a local when back in the fold. A true farm B&B with home cooking – hard to beat.
