Elephant Plains Game Lodge is situated in the northern part of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, which forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park.
The lodge accommodates a maximum of 24 guests in a selection of Rondavels, Luxury Suites and the Honeymoon Suite. The 5 Rondavels have sundecks, en suite bathrooms, air conditioning, overhead fans, mini bars, tea/coffee facilities, mosquito nets and electronic safes.
The 6 Luxury Suites are exclusive, open-plan suites each with a lounge, double bedroom, en suite bathroom and a private viewing deck that offers spectacular views over the riverbed. All suites have air conditioning, overhead fans, fireplaces, mosquito nets, electronic safes, as well as mini bars and tea and coffee facilities.
The honeymoon suite provides honeymooners with elegance, privacy and a fantastic view. The glass-fronted suite has all the regular luxuries and also has a private splash pool and daybed, ideal for a mid-morning nap.
There are two game drives a day, during which an experienced game ranger and local Shangaan tracker will share their extensive knowledge and love of the African bush. Each drive lasts about three hours with a refreshment break. As the lodge is situated on a dry riverbed, the surrounding habitat is favourable for leopards, as these creatures enjoy the riverine and denser bush areas. Over time and due to a carefully planned habituation process, some of the animals have become habituated to the game drive vehicles. This enables guests to view the animals undisturbed, as they go about their daily routines. Keen birdwatchers can also try to spot over 300 bird species.
