Elephant Plains Game Lodge is situated in the northern part of the exclusive Sabi Sand Game Reserve, which forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park, and has no fences between it and the famous Kruger National Park.
Whilst the Sabi Sand Game Reserve is a ‘Big 5’ and ‘Super Seven’ destination, it is famous for its outstanding leopard sightings. Due to the dedication of all the reserve owners that make up the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, leopard sightings are frequent and up close without interfering with their behaviour in any way. It isn’t unusual to see several individuals in a single game drive.
Elephant Plains has a variety of accommodation on offer; six luxury suites, five Rondavels and the Manyeleti Honeymoon suite. Each of the suites consists of a twin or king size bed draped with mosquito netting, air-conditioning, ceiling fans, an indoor seating area with luxurious soft furnishings and tea & coffee making facilities. The en-suite facilities include a bath tub, indoor shower, single vanity and separate w.c.
The Rondavels include a sundeck, the luxury suites also include a fireplace and private viewing deck, whilst the Manyeleti Honeymoon suite includes a private splash pool and daybed.
The facilities on offer at Elephant Plains includes two swimming pools with loungers and deck. A guest lounge with small library, a games room, dining room and viewing deck, a spa and gym is also available to guests.
Dining is conducted either in the dining room, on the pool deck or at around a log fire in the traditional boma under the stars.
Activities available to guests at Elephant Plains include exploring Sabi Sand Game Reserve in the experienced hands of highly qualified guides. Twice daily game drives are conducted in the early morning and afternoon when it’s cooler and the predators are most active.
Try a bush walk, where your guide will point out the smaller things within the park such as animal spoor, unique plants and trees along with the numerous birds that call this reserve home.
