Next to the famed Kruger National Park, within the Sabi Sand Reserve, Elephant Plains Game Lodge takes resplendent accommodation, mouth-watering cuisine and breath-taking Big Five game-viewing to a new level. The lodge itself rests on the dry Menyeleti riverbed. It overlooks a vast and free expanse with a game drinking hole.
Should you desire the chance to spot wildlife right now, Elephant Plains offers visitors to their website a live view of the watering hole, with a webcam inside the large Jackalberry tree.
The design of the lodge offers different types of accommodation for the astute travellers needs and desires. Choices range from six luxury suites, five rondavels, and the romantic ambient of a honeymoon suite, The Menyeleti.
The principal lodge holds a lounge, bar, reception, wine cellar, dining areas, as well as a curio shop and an intimate library.
Guests have an abundance of choices starting with the African Health Spa, where rejuvenation, relaxation and rest are priority. Pamper yourself with a head to toe treatment whilst looking out at the animals drinking from the oasis, and doing your game viewing from this supine position.
For guests who are conscious of their fitness, Elephant Plains Gym contains free weights, a multi-gym as well as treadmills and other cardio machines. This, along with swimming pools and games rooms, ensure a novel experience.
Star-gazing will never be the same once you experience the Southern Hemisphere’s abundance of celestial bodies through the 8 Inch Orion Intelli Telescope that our informative rangers use. Being away from the distracting lights of the city makes this the ideal spot to be humbled by the stars.
At Elephant Plains we welcome children, offering tailored activities that include beading, painting, bushwalks, and constructing an ant farm, just to name a few. We have a special menu for the children and, should you require it, you can book a babysitter.
