About Elephant Plains Game Lodge

Situated in the Sabi Sand Wildtuin, adjacent to the Kruger National Park, Elephant Plains Game Lodge offers comfortable style and affordable luxury. This owner-run lodge accommodates a maximum of 24 guests, which ensures personal service and a warm, friendly atmosphere. The lodge caters for the discerning traveller, offering a variety of accommodation options, varying from rondavels and luxury suites to the Manyeleti honeymoon suite.

Elephant Plains is world-renowned for excellent game viewing and guests can enjoy two game drives and a bush walk per day. Facilities include two swimming pools, gym, conference centre, small library and games room. We also cater for small, intimate weddings.

ACCOMMODATION

Elephant Plains Game Lodge overlooks a scenic plain where a whole array of game and birds frequently visit the waterhole. It is home to a maximum of 24 guests ensuring personalised service and maximum comfort.

Main Lodge:
The main lodge is situated on the banks of the Manyeleti river offering unforgettable views of sunrise and sunset across the plain. The pool deck overlooks the watering hole opposite the camp where animals come to drink daily. The main lodge houses the reception, dining room, bar/lounge, wine cellar, library and curio shop. Our chefs prepare tasty international cuisine specialising in South African dishes. Mealtimes are pleasurable, mouth-watering experiences accompanied by handpicked wines from our wine cellar.

Manyeleti Honeymoon Suite
The Manyeleti honeymoon suite provides for romantic elegance and the setting ensures privacy with a stunning view. This glass fronted suite has all the regular luxuries and also boasts a private splash pool and sala, ideal for a mid-morning nap.

Rondavels:
The lodge features five spacious appointed thatched rondavels tastefully decorated with an African theme. Every rondavel has its own distinct character and comfortable charm, and looks out over the beautifully landscaped garden. All rondavels have en-suite bathrooms (bath and shower) air-conditioning, overhead fans and mosquito nets as well as small sun-decks, mini bars and coffee / tea making facilities.

Luxury Suites:
Six luxury suites decorated in warm, earthy tones blend in superbly with their natural surroundings as they overlook the dry riverbed in front of the lodge. These exclusive open-plan suites each have a lounge, double bedroom, en suite bathroom (inside/outside shower) and a private sun-deck. All luxury chalets feature air-conditioning, mini bars, overhead fans, wood fires, mosquito nets and a safe. One chalet has been specially prepared to accommodate our disabled guests. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided.

GAME DRIVES

The highlight of your visit is the thrill of close encounters with wildlife from the safety of open 4x4 vehicles. Daily activities include the early morning and afternoon game drives in search of the Big Seven. A bush walk is offered every day after breakfast, which will open up a new world of smaller fauna and flora. The afternoon game drive affords you the opportunity to have a sundowner at a carefully selected venue in the African bush.

DINING

Evening meals are served around a fire in the boma under the vast African sky. Breakfast and lunch are served either in the dining room or on the deck overlooking the swimming pool. Adjacent to the swimming pool, the wooden deck offers spectacular views overlooking the waterhole and scenic plain. The care with which each meal is prepared together with the setting of the open-air boma or thatched lapa, ensure an unforgettable dining experience.

SERVICE

Our personalised service is of the highest standard due to the exclusivity and smallness of the lodge. Your personal guides - an experienced game ranger and local Shangaan tracker - are keen to share their knowledge and love of the African bush with you.

Verified reviewexcellent

Out stay at Elephant Plains was amazing. The accommodations, the staff, the meals, our guide Richard and the game drives were incredible. We saw the big 5 within hours of our arrival. We booked through Eyes On Africa and the totally exceeded any expectations we had. We were very welcomed and made many fun aquaintances while there. We could not have asked for anything more on safari. Elephant Plains is first rate and we will return again.
