Elephant Plains Lodge

Elephant Plains Lodge

As careful conservationists and proponents of sustainable wildlife and plant life, the owners and staff of Elephant Plains Game Lodge are living their dream, taking care of the land and its animals in order that future generations are able to enjoy them. Guests of the lodge catch the vision for the conservation and education.

Situated in the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve within South Africa’s iconic Kruger National Park, Elephant Plains Lodge is world-famous for its sightings of Africa’s magnificent “big five” (elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion, and leopard).

Able to accommodate up to 24 guests in rondavels, luxury suites, and the exclusive Manyeleti honeymoon suite, Elephant Plains Lodge offers elegance in the middle of the remote African wilderness. Five affordable rondavels (two dating back to the original family property) are nestled in the lush landscaped garden. All with the latest amenities, they feature sundeck, en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, overhead fans, mini bar, tea/coffee facilities, and cascading mosquito net.

Glass-fronted luxury suites draw the eye outward to the panoramic African landscape. Open-plan architecture lends an airy feel along with muted, natural décor. Each luxury suite spoils guests with lounge, double bedroom, en-suite bathroom, fireplace, and all of the other amenities included in a rondavel.

An exclusive and private retreat, the Manyeleti Suite is the ideal choice for a romantic honeymoon accommodation. It contains all of the standard features as well as a glass front, private splash pool, and daybed on the viewing deck.

Meals are relished with flair and feature a fusion of international cuisine and South African specialties. Enjoy breakfast and lunch in the dining room or pool deck (with fabulous views!) and dinner around a log fire in the boma beneath the African stars. The main lodge also houses the bar, lounge, wine cellar, small library, curio shop, gym, and games room. Relax in luxury in one of the two swimming pools or at the on-site spa.

With two game drives per day, chances of viewing one of the “big five” or wild dog or cheetah are high. Bush walks to learn about some of the smaller animals and nocturnal game drives are sure to add to the exceptional safari experience offered at Elephant Plains Game Lodge.
