About Elephant Leisure Resort
These private mountain cottages are situated on a 270Ha fynbos and citrus farm in the Citrusdal Valley in the Oliphants River Mountains which neighbours the Cederberg Wilderness area.
The farm is situated in a very secluded gorge that has a warm water (26 - 30˚) spring which seeps through the rock further up in the valley.
The farm also has a beautiful 2km river area which can be used for swimming, canoeing, bird watching and fishing and we are in the process to create very private glamping spots all along this river area.
There is a lovely 4km hiking trail which includes panoramic views, gorge hiking covered in wild buchu and ends with a small waterfall. The canoeing is absolutely breathtaking and is about 3km's long.
Self Catering Accommodation
Each self catering cottage has a private hot tub Jacuzzi, fireplace and braai area on the veranda which has views of the river and valley, Fynbos and weird rock formations.
The rooms are all en suite with King size beds (cotton percale bedding) that can be converted into single beds if the venue is booked for conferences and team building.
We also do weekend weddings that can cater for 40 beds onsite. If taking into account the fully equipped tented camps at the river, we can cater for 150 people on site for a wedding.
Citrusdal town has a golf course, mountain biking trails, hiking trails, canoeing, horse riding, 4x4 trails, bird watching, fishing and day dreaming spots.
The river is rated the second highest bio diverse river in South Africa and we are 60km from one of the top ten rock climbing spots in the world and also an hours drive from South Africa's best left surf break.
Please do ask us for our scenic drive route options over beautiful passes, along white untouched sandy beaches and through Wilderness Mountains with beautiful soft fruit farms along the way.
