I got an awesome deal from a Groupon and was excited to visit ELR based on the great reviews. Just as we arrived at the resort, we called the owner, Anja and she told us that our keys were already in our unit (#2). Our unit was the furthest away but we appreciated the extra privacy and spectacular views. The... More

Very beautiful and relaxing. Short hike was just as enjoyable and the jacuzi the cherry on top. The fireplace came in handy on the colder nights and the huge beds made us not wanting to get up in the mornings.

Great for a girls weekend away! We visited two daughters and our mother and had the most amazing, relaxing time! We loved the amazingly hot jacuzzi which we spent hours in at night, watching the stars. And after that we relaxed to a nice warm inside fire. The king size beds are so big you can sleep two people and... More

Hi Anja, We had an awesome time – just too short  We stayed in unit 10, we suggest you don’t do all the units as unit 4 (it’s lovely and all) but if you want to get away from the city buzz, plain and simple is what you want – Keep it rustic! Keep the jacuzzies sunk into the... More

Was such a pleasure spending a weekend at the Elephant Leisure Resort. Breathtaking view and such a nice and cosy cottage with a fireplace to keep you warm at night and a lovely jacuzzi to relax in. The pictures do not even do it justice. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I will definitely go again soon!!

I loved the fact that the cottage was completely separate from the others. Great scenery, birdlife and "Sylvester" the cat was extremely welcoming :) . The accommodation is very comfortable with everything you need. We didn't move from the cottage is it was just so relaxing to sit on the stoep in the sun or enjoy the Jacuzzi under the... More

Now being a big child at heart, i expected to find elephant frolicking in the pools and playing beach volley ball or something, unfortunatelythe place gets its name from the fact that thusands of years...

Nice place to enjoy complete relaxation. Beautifully located in the Citrusdal mountains this resort has a lot to offer and would be even more enjoyable I imagine once their renovations are complete. My boyfriend and I enjoyed a relaxing weekend at elephants leisure, the only unpleasant bit was our electricity that would trip about 3-4 times a day. We took... More

We had a fantastic weekend here. The setting is awesome with beautiful mountains all around, yet close to everything. We hiked up the gorge, which leads to fantastic views. Barbecue indoors as it was the middle of winter, but we did use the jacuzzi during the day. A great stay.
