Just spent 3 nights at Elandela for my mums 60th birthday. The two of us have had the best time ever. We've been made to feel so special, and treated so well, the only downside is having to leave! Johan has been our guide, our encyclopedia, our guardian and a friend. He has made the 3 days such a pleasure.... More

Was looking forward to this trip for a cery long time but it wasnt quite what we expected. The meals are not very democratic such that if there's something you dont eat,u are pretty much stuffed. Steven the chef is top notch though. More local dishes,in my opinion,would be quite an enchanting experience. The serving staff are so helpful and... More

A private lodge (with up market & spectacular food- & we ain't foodies) outside Kruger with white lions, rhino, giraffe, zebra, etc. Focus on their two orphaned rhinos. Plus the inland trip to the scenic Blyde Canyon and its various land forms and a visit to wildlife rehab, (and an aggressive elephant just before entering Kruger was more scary than... More

A well overdue review from our stay at Elandela in August 2014, where my new wife and I were honoured to be the first couple to marry in the Private Game Reserve. From the moment we arrived to the tearful departure, we had an amazing time. This was our second visit and the only place that came to mind as... More

A short but incredible trip to Elandela, the staff could not do enough for us. Our Guides Carrina and Jacques were knowledgeable and friendly, in fact it felt like spending time with old friends they made us so welcome. The wildlife is literally on the doorstep and incredible. My first photo taken as we were driving to the lodge from... More

The stay at Elandela could not have been better. We stayed for four nights and were sad to leave. The room was furnished to a very high standard and any requests were attended to immediately. The lodge is owned by Yvonne and Rocco who did everything possible to make our stay an unforgettable experience. The day to day running is... More

Elandela is a truly magical place. Yvonne and Carrina welcomed us like old friends although it was our first visit and we were introduced to Steven who checked our food preferences and smiled continually throughout our stay. The staff are hugely knowledgeable and know their stuff and the whole team worked continually to ensure a truly wonderful experience. My only... More

My wife Bronwyn and I stayed at Elandela lodge after a cruise around Madagascar and Mauritius. We were visiting from Australia so were keen to see the African wildlife. The Lodge was the ideal location for this trek. The rooms were excellent and the food was out of this world! The staff were very friendly and catered to various needs.... More
