Meike and Lloyd Lovemore
Experience freedom, space and nature on this working farm of 1300ha big, close to the Sunshinecoast of South Africa. It is situated only 20 minutes from Addo Elephant National Park and 45 minutes from Port Elizabeth airport. Every morning you will receive a breakfast basket, to enjoy in the privacy of the guesthouse and to have a perfect relax way of starting your day. You can join us on a 4x4 excursion on the farm and learn shooting, help feeding with the calves and get a ride on the tractor or maybe you want to bring your mountainbike or go for a trail walk and you might spot kudu's, warthogs, bushbucks or the rich birdlife which is all living on the farm. You can cook your own meal in the fully equipped kitchen, or choose from the home made meals from Meike. Or light the fire, poor yourself a glass of wine and enjoy the starry night as one only can experience in the countryside!
Hi I'm Meike Lovemore originally from The Netherlands and now living in the beautiful South Africa on a farm just outside Port Elizabeth. In 2001 I arrived in South Africa for the first time and worked (as part of my studies) in Addo Elephant National Park. It's there where I met my husband, who was working as a ranger at the time. With the help of a Dutch TV show "All You Need is Love", he came to The Netherlands and we've been living there till 2012 when we followed our hearts and dream to start farming in SA. It's an absolute privilege to see our 3 kids growing up with such a freedom, in a beautiful nature and in a warmhearted community, that it exceeds even our dream! And it is this privilege that we love to share and why we open our doors to anyone who wants to experience this too.
If you would like, you can contact Meike to help you planning your trip through South Africa, with many local tips. To make most of your stay here in our guesthouse, we can organise many things for you to do in our direct surroundings, such as: - a day to the coast towns Kenton or Port Alfred, which can include the beach, local culture, a spa visit and enjoying home made pizza's baked in a wood oven. - Sand boarding or sand sledding of the dunes: an unforgettable experience - Take a river cruise and enjoy the tranquility of the stunning nature of Sundays River - Go zip-lining or experience the biggest swing in the Eastern Cape - Safari through Addo including a lunch braai in the middle of the Park - And many more things - You simply have to tick on the list what you would like to do, and we take care of it! You can cook your own meal in the fully equipped kitchen, or choose from the home made meals from Meike. Or light the fire, poor yourself a glass of wine and enjoy the starry night as one only can experience in the countryside!
