We are often visited by resident wildlife in our garden. Keep a look out for Hippos, bushbuck, porcupine, small antelope, mongoose, monkeys, bushpigs and lots of feathery friends. Come and experience the unique richness of this very special World Heritage Site. Elephant Coast Guesthouse is equipped with an inverter (back-up) system, in case off any power failure.
The Elephant Coat Guesthouse team would feel privileged to help you make your dream holiday of a lifetime come true.
Visiting the area will take your breath away... We highly recommend a visit to Cape Vidal (close by) and enjoy a scenic drive through the Isimangaliso Wet Lands with picnic sites like the Mission Rocks land site, where on a sunny day it is possible to see the whales carvorting and dolphins frolicking in the distance.
