ACCOMMODATION

The lodge caters for the discerning traveller, offering a variety of Sabi Sand accommodation options, varying from rondavels and luxury suites to the Manyeleti honeymoon suite.

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.

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.

Please see the individual suite descriptions and photographs below, to assist you with your choice.

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.

Everything was exceptional. The game rides were amazing and we saw all of the big 5 all up close. The best value for your money.
