We were a group of nine adults and two children and for most of us it was our first time at Erindi. We stayed at the main lodge for three nights. The rooms are huge, it was clean and the beds were comfortable. All the rooms overlook the bush where there are always game of some sort roaming. The food... More

My fiancé and I stayed for 2 nights at Erindi. It was my 2nd time here, his first. We LOVED it! The experience begins at the main gate - a warm welcome by the guard and whilst driving to the Old Traders Lodge, you can already spot animals (including elephants!). Staff at reception are welcoming and helpful, show you to... More

We stayed at the self catering lodges at Erindi. One should know that they charge per person entering the reserve so it may be nominally more expensive just just book two lodges if you are more than 4 people. The price was very good all things considering. I highly recommend the game driver "JD" - he was amazing and very... More

The website does not do justice to Erindi. Yes, it is large and could be described as rather corporate, but it does tick all the boxes. The rooms are huge, comfortable and have luxurious bathrooms. All the rooms overlook the bush where there are always game of some sort roaming. The restaurant is all buffet, but the selection is good... More

Erindi is easily one of my new favourite places to visit. The staff are wonderful, the accommodation is fantastic and affordable with everything needed. Next time I will stay longer as 2 nights is not nearly enough. Will definitely be back. One suggestion: it would be nice to have a bar at Camp Elephant similar but smaller than Old traders... More

We did not expect much game at this time of the year. How stupid of us. The guides went out of their way to find us lions and elephants. We even got to see their world famous wild dogs. For our kids, they had a special game drive, my little 4 year old son was allowed to sit in front... More
