Rooms are very clean and comfortable with indoor and outdoor showers. Lots of very good food. Game drives are 3 hours and brilliantly taken by Steph. Muffins and hot chocolate/coffee in the morning and sun downers with biltong, nuts and crisps in the evening. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

Cute and cozy lodge with a max of 10 guests. All of the food was excellent with plenty of variety. Rooms and bathrooms quite large and nicely decorated. Outdoor double headed shower was a nice touch. Graeme was an excellent guide. Full of interesting facts and some corny jokes to keep it light. Excellent "Elephant Rock Lodge Specials” during the... More

This was our 4th visit to the lodge and every time it is just getting better than the previous visit.From the hospitality and catering that was run by Lee-Anne and Rene to the to the dedicated and knowledgeable Graeme, our Field Guide, our visit was faultless. Every need was taken care off. Thanks . Looking forward to our next visit.

We visited Elephant Rock Lodge with family for the past 3 days. What an awesome experience!! A top class Lodge! Stunning views from the chalets. All have views on the waterhole in front of the Lodge. The beautiful deck also looks out on the watering hole. The tranquil rock-pool was a life-saver in the heat. The staff treat you like... More

We spent 3 nigs at elephant rock and enjoyed the privacy and peacefulness of the place. With only 5 rooms for a total of 10 guests it can simply never get crowded. The rooms are very comfortable, have a very high standard and perfect view. We felt at home immediately since the staff was very helpfull and friendly at any... More
