There truly aren't enough nouns in the English dictionary to describe how superb this lodge is. A huge thank you goes out to everyone who made our stay so special. This would include Lee-Ann, Steve, Stephanie, Rene, Thembi, housekeeping and kitchen staff. They're a well oiled machine and it shows in the excellent service one receives from beginning to end....

This was our second visit to Elephant Rock Lodge and we really enjoyed the whole experience again. The Lodge only accommodates ten guests, so one gets very personal service. Steve, Steph (our ranger, who is extremely knowledgeable) and Lee-Ann are very friendly and helpful - to the extent that one couldn't ask for more. Game viewing was great. Food was... More

We stayed at Elephant Rock for 3 nights during December 2014. It was a fabulous experience. The Game drives were stunning. We saw lion, elephant, cheetah, rhino, hippo plus many more animals. The accommodation and service was brilliant.

I can't give enough praise for all of the staff at elephant rock lodge. From beginning to end of our short trip we were looked after like royalty!! The welcome was great after a long drive getting there. We were taken to our beautiful rooms (with outdoor showers to boot). The views were amazing, and as if by magic we... More

The communal Lodge area is beautifully stated and just gives you an instant sense of relaxation. The food was fabulous, you wont be going hungry here. The room we had was... More

On arriving at Elephant Rock we were greeted by Steve and Stef. Once our cars were parked in a secure undercover area, we were taken to the lodge, given a welcome drink and an energetic brief by Leanne. Elephant Rock is a boutique style lodge with 5 chalets. Each privately located chalet is tastefully decorated and has a kettle, tea,... More

I have no hesitation recommending this small intimate safari lodge for travellers who want wonderful accommodation, terrific food, friendly staff and of course a terrific safari experience. There are only five bungalows all overlooking a waterhole where the wild animals come to drink. The veranda has swinging chairs. Indoor and outdoor showers and if you are lucky someone will have...
