The timber chalets are a bit on top of each other - no peace from the neighbours, and the floors are quite noisy. But the venue is outstanding, with entertaining wild life, and value for money. Restaurant food excellent

We stayed at Areena as the first leg of our two week vacation, service was very good, nice clean rooms, nice big bed, enjoyed our stay and went on a canoe trip and went through the little nature resort.

My husband and I have just spent one night at this resort whilst travelling from cape town to natal.One night doesn't really do justice.as you need to spend a few days enjoying the environment. The resort is on a big river and they have canoes which you can hire and paddle up and down- also they have a few jetties where you can launch a boat and then they also have a boat which goes up and down the river(just not sure how often that is)
They have a huge caravan park and then sites for camping and then a few chalets and rondavels.On the way in we saw ostriches, buck and zebra. You can do a game drive on a quad bike_ we didn't have any time unfortunately. The unit which we were in was self catering and had everything that you need.There is a nice swimming pool on site and we noticed a few playgrounds for the kids as well as trampolines. This looks like a kids paradise- sure the little ones will have such a great time at this resort.
Very near east London- probably only 20 minutes drive.
There is a restaurant on site but is closed on a Monday and a Tuesday.
We had dinner about 10 minutes down the road at "the furnace family restaurant"The pizza was absolutely delicious as was the burger.
The unit we were in had a TV as well.
Wifi - you need to purchase at reception.
The resort is very peaceful and we will definitely be back again .

A beautiful setting, very relaxing and peaceful. The bird life was good. We also had fun on the canoes and added to our bird list. Camping area was well kept and ablution block well looked after. Certainly worth a visist.

What an incredible camp site and facilities. Although we were only camping for one day, we had an amazing time and definitely cannot wait to visit again, our stay was far to short! Thank you Areena and staff :)
