We had such a great stay at Elephant Rock. It all started when we were picked up from our car by Steph, who was so friendly and welcoming. We took a very short drive to the lodge where we were welcomed with a refreshing drink, while our bags were unpacked and sent straight to our room. The hospitatlity continued throughout... More

One of South Africa's hidden gems. Located in a reserve that holds the "Big 5". We saw 4 of the 5 (Buffalo, Elephant, Lion & Rhino) which is no surprise. Leopard's are very allusive. Plenty other animals to keep you fascinated in your African experience. The Staff are just so friendly and accommodating. The rooms are so comfortable, the food... More

...and left as a happy and re-rejuvenated man! It was my first three night stay at a game reserve and the stay at Elephant Rock was a real fantastic experience. Not that we have not been at other lodges before, but this is an outstanding place in Nambiti. Although we have naerer destinations from Jozie up north, the 4 hour... More

I stayed with a group of friends and the service we experienced was outstanding. The food was top quality with some contemporary touches. Our guide, Graeme was knowledgable, funny, friendly and helpful and we thoroughly... More

We had a sibling reunion at Elephant Rock Lodge in June. It was really great in all respects - it is small and therefore it was perfect for the overseas family members to reconnect without other guests being around, the staff were very welcoming, friendly and accommodating - we requested a birthday dinner and they baked a cake for the...

Brilliant safaris with many animals (thanks Stefanie), brilliant accommodation & staff, & the most delicious food - breakfast, lunch and evening meal.They catered for our two vegetarians also brilliantly. And how nice to return from the afternoon safari (just) a little chilled, & to be... More

We (a group of 5)recently stayed at Elephant Rock -- what a fantastic experience... Everyone (including teenagers and elderly parents) were made to feel welcome and were well looked after. The accommodation was beautiful: spacious, clean and well stocked with tea, coffee, biscuits etc. Meals were five star and we saw heaps of game on our drives. Steph, our ranger... More

The staff at elephant lodge went above and beyond to ensure that we had the best possible experience. They considered every tiny detail. The rooms were clean, private and had great views. The staff were polite, helpful, accomodating and friendly. The game viewing was one of the best experiences of my life. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this to anyone... More

Our family of 4 stayed at this lodge for 3 nights (family inter-leading rooms). The accommodation was very comfortable, food was great and game drives were very worthwhile (hot-water bottles in the mornings were a win!!) - Stephanie, Steve and Renee were great hosts. It was a special treat to watch a herd of elephant at the watering-hole from the... More
