White Elephant Safari Lodge is located in Pongola Game Reserve and offers classic, décor, with deep verandahs and sweeping views.
Guests are accommodated in 8 luxurious safari tents, each with bathroom, outdoor canvas shower, private verandah, personal bar and tea/coffee making facilities. Insect gauze covers the windows and tent-flaps, and each tent has overhead ceiling fans and mosquito nets.
Delicious meals are served at the main house (a restored colonial homestead) on the wide verandahs, in the dining room, the garden or on the wooden deck alongside the swimming pool.
Game drives are conducted in open game drive vehicles in the early morning and the late afternoon with qualified guides. Guides show guests not only the beautiful game in the reserve but also a variety of interesting smaller species and the many wonderful facets of the bush and nature.
Walks can be experienced all year round except in exceptionally hot or inclement weather. Tailor-made walks are very much part of the lodge's outdoor experience for birding, tree identifying or any other special interest. Walks provide a unique opportunity to interact closely with the nature.
The 13,000 hectare Lake Jozini provides the focal feature of Pongola Game Reserve. At White Elephant, fishing, boat cruises and spectacular sunset cruises provide a unique and wonderful alternative means of exploring the flora and fauna of this beautiful wildlife sanctuary.
