Elephant Plains Game Lodge

Elephant Plains Game Lodge, situated in the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve, is a sensible combination of good value comfortable accommodation and an excellent Kruger Park safari experience.

With a maximum of 24 guests, Elephant Plains Game Lodge is a family-run safari lodge with three choices of accommodation: the original chalets, the newer luxury suites and the delightful honeymoon suite. With beautiful thatched roofs, large front balconies overlooking the waterhole and furnished to a high standard, all rooms offer comfort and privacy in the African bush.

After ticking all the right boxes on the home front - a genuine warm welcome, hearty chow and a comfortable bed - Elephant Plains Game Lodge pulls out its trump card: the game viewing. Famed for its leopard and the full spectrum of big game, plains game and great diversity of habitats, Elephant Plains Game Lodge stands out for its excellent game guides and trackers.

The Sabi Sand Private Reserve is an enormous swathe of African bush that extends the area of the Kruger Park by about 65,000 hectares (or a small country if you prefer). Sharing 50km of its border with Kruger Park, Sabi Sand allows free movement of its animals into and out of the National Park. Elephant Plains Game Lodge has a 4,500-ha private traversing area inside the Sabi Sand Reserve encompassing a variety of habitats for great game viewing safaris.

On your Kruger safari at Elephant Plains Game Lodge, you will search for elephants, lions, leopards, white rhino, cheetah, buffalo, giraffe, hyena, zebra, wildebeest, hippo, wild dog and a host of plains game, nocturnal predators and smaller mammals. The birds, trees, plants and topography make for interesting side shows as you live and breathe the African bush.
