My husband and I were visiting South Africa for the first time, and during our second week in the country we stayed at Elephant Rock for 3 nights with 6 Safari trips. Everything was perfect and within hours we were lucky enough to view a herd of elephants at the waterhole, from our lodge. Renee our host made us welcome... More

The family was looking forward to the luxury safari break and we were not disappointed. From the moment Graeme (our very knowledgeable game ranger) collected us from the car park, to a personal and friendly meet and greet with Lee-Ann and the team, we knew it was going to be special. And it was. The food was absolutely delicious and... More

Sarah & Keith Pitout has got it just right with this wonderful lodge. A comfortable drive from our home in Umhlanga, we were welcomed by the effervescent Lee-Ann and it certainly has everything the extremely expensive lodges in the Kruger can offer and more. We stayed for 5 nights and every day brought a new experience, sightings were frequent (thanks... More

stayed here 3 nights and it was definitely not enough. Staff are always happy and ready to help whenever. Food was brilliant and the chalets were luxurious with outdoor showers and great views. Many animals are in the reserve (we saw 4 out of 5 of the big 5 ) along with some critters and creatures within in it, including... More

I cannot express just how wonderful a time my wife and I enjoyed at Elephant Rock except to say that it set a , high bar for us in terms of excellence. We were greeted at the car park by our ranger, Graeme, then at the lodge by both LeAnn and René, who provided such excellent and entertaining meals and... More

There is a reason why this lodge has only fantastic reviews - It is simply one of the best safari lodges in South Africa. if you are still looking around for a lodge, I would urge you to stop looking at book with the Elephant Rock. I promise you will not be disappointed.

We just loved the outstanding service, great food,quality rooms,friendly staff and Graham our ranger who made it such a memorable experience. The lodge is small and so private unlike others we have stayed at. Game viewing is average and limited You won't see leopard and cheetah but plenty of other good sightings. But it's great value The reserve is expanding... More
