Glen Afric is a lovely venue ideal for a small conference or a night away and not too far from main cities. It is nice for a day out with lunch out in nature. They have wonderful elephant interaction experiences which is a treat and various other interesting activities on site. Have had a number of dealings with them one... More

We have visited four times, in fact everytime we are in South Africa. We love it. the elephant walks are great and not to be missed. The restaurent situation over looking the countryside is to die for. We have ALWAYS had a great time, good meals and excellent animal interactions. Lots of great photo opportunities, a must for animal lovers... More

My mother and I stayed here for one night. We booked the luxury Livingstone suite. Considering how much we paid, it was utterly disappointing. Stained carpets, linen that was so old it was coming apart at the seams, balcony doors with no locks (had to wedge them closed with blocks of wood). Hardly any plug points, no glasses for water,...

On enquiring about available accommodation we were informed by the new receptionist of their top suite. We took this option and were grateful for an early check-in. All praise to Stanley, who throughout the day was extremely helpful and courteous. We decided to have the Sunday Buffet - shocking to say the least. A poor selection, particularly starters and desserts.... More

A really lovely venue, I can see why people get married here, beautifully kept grounds, a lovely chance to meet Elephants - Three, Marty and Hannah were definitely the highlight - pay to go on the Elephant Walk if you get the opportunity. To spend the time with these well loved Elephants is special - for me, seeing the relationship... More

A great stay in lovely chalets overlooking the hippo pond. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our requests. Sundowners on the hill, breakfast by the fireplace and close encounters of the elephant kind made this a memorable stay.

We stayed for 2 nights for my nieces wedding. What a fantastic place wish I could have stayed longer. The food was good, staff were brilliant, the wedding was out of this world - who can say they got married with elephants as guests. We stayed in the Manor Cottage right next to the hippo pool & across from the... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the start of a trip and wished we could have stayed longer. It is a beautiful place, we have never experienced such peace and tranquillity. We booked a lodge room and were given the 'Cornwallace Harris' which has a private terrace/ decking overlooking a garden. The room was large with comfortable chairs, a large... More

My husband and I and two friends were here for lunch today. The venue is very pretty but the food was awful. The roast pork had no crackling, the potatoes and vegetables were cold as was the gravy. Our friends had chicken which was also cold. There was a very poor selection of starters and desserts and the ones we... More
