    Everything at Elephant Plains was amazing. The room was very cozy and very clean, the food was great and the game drives were outstanding. Our guide Nick went above and beyond to get us close to the animals. I 100% recommend this place to everyone!

    Beautiful lodge, wonderful staff, excellent food. Wished we had stay for a few more days. The game drives were so much fun. Nick was absolutely wonderful in answering all of our questions. Highly recommend this lodge!

    Amazing lodge and staff. The game drives were great, and so was the bush walk. There’s a boundary that safaris can’t cross, but the area is large enough to see most animals. Big thanks to the hospitality of the staff!
