Wife and I stopped at Glen Afric for something bite and drink. The beer was ice cold and normally a hamburger does not do it for me. I can highly recommend their burgers, very tasty and a challenges to finish. This is a must for a burger lovers.

We stayed in the Lake View cottage for the weekend which was very pleasant. The Cottage was very spacious and had everything you could think of. Thank you to the ladies who came and turned on the Electric Blankets and the Gentleman that brought us wood for our fire. Some maintenance is required throughout the place and a suggestion would...

Glen Afric is a wonderful and peaceful place to live in the nature with a lot of African animals like zebras, hippos, wildebeests, impalas, giraffes, warthogs, elephants, ostriches... There are also some lions, cheetahs and leopard but they are in captivity. The restaurant is excellent and cheap. The room was large and the view was breathtaking. We loved our trip... More

The surroundings was absolut perfect! A beautiful view from the restaurant area, where you can be lucky to see the animals. The service in the restaurant was very good, and the food was very delicious. The tents are placed in the middle of the bush, and you get an autentic feeling of the wild. Though you feel safe, with guard... More

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
