We have just returned from a trip to South Africa which included a 3 night stay at Elendela Lodge. We were greeted by Rocco the owner and driven to the lodge where these African smiles burst into song and a welcoming drink. The lodge is amazing and the rooms are definitely luxurious. The food is outstanding so well done to... More

This is a magical place with the most wonderful staff. The lodge is atmospheric and comfortable overlooking its own watering hole and there is the warmest welcome from the staff on arrival. We felt relaxed and regenerated at the end of our time here and will dream of it for a long time to come. We would go back tomorrow... More

We came by Elandela fortuitously booking a late package to RSA, so had no real expectation. From arrival Elandela more than impressed. The setting was breathtaking the rooms well appointed and as described - luxurious. The service was friendly and impeccable - the classic African smiles met every request. i'm not sure how Andrew managed to create such gourmet dishes... More

As a South African proud of the many game lodges I have visited, I am so ashamed at the cheap delivery experienced at Elandela Private Game Lodge. To start with the architecture and interior decoration are dark and frankly depressing.The public areas are dark and gloomy rather than sexily subdued.
