I recently spent the weekend at this wonderful resort in the mountains - only a two hour drive from Cape Town but which feels like miles away from the city. The fully equipped cottage I stayed in was both clean and spacious and the jacuzzi on the verandah was a real treat, especially late at night for stargazing. Most notably,... More

What a gorgeous little gem this place is. Well equipped, stoep with a jacuzzi, surrounded by beautiful mountains and my personal favourite... the black out curtains! Will recommend it to everyone.. Winter or Summer! Well done Werner and team.

Having arrived in the beautiful valley surrounded by majestic mountains, we were welcomed with friendly staff, a neat and clean chalet with an already warmed up jacuzzi and a sense of comfort and escape from rest of the busy world ! The resort is breathe taking and nestled in the heart of such beautiful nature! What a wonderful variety of... More

A beautiful spot, jacuzzis for everyone! The pool and setting were perfect for our weekend birthday celebrations and the surrounding hills were made for wondering and getting back in touch with the outdoors. The heat of summer is the perfect opportunity to go for a swim in the river nearby (or a canoe) and you can have a wonderful evening... More

We visited Elephant Leisure Resort last week for a 2 night stay. There are a handful of cottages spread out over the property, the cottages are a nice distance away from each other which offers maximum privacy. We were very impressed with our little cottage, it had a super comfortable king size bed with high quality white linen, a lovely... More

I was privileged enough to be part of a thirty person crew that went through to ELR this past weekend and all i can say is WOW. My girlfriend and I stayed in one of the self-catering cottages and we were blown away. Seriously, the cottages are immaculate and comfortable, king size beds, quality linens and jacuzzis on the balconies,... More

We found our Chalet to be very neat and comfortable. The staff was excellent and friendly. The resort itself is situated in such a beautiful area secluded and surrounded by the mountains, away from the noise and busyness of Cape Town which makes it very private. However we did find the area where you would do the canoeing very unfriendly,... More

We stayed at this resort recently and found it to be exactly what we needed. Its very private and secluded with lovely hikes and a natural feel about the whole place. It was clean with great views and felt like home. We had no people bothering us just a few curious baboons but they didn't come too close. A great... More

We arrived and checked in and when we got to our unit, the jacuzzi was already warmed up and ready to go. The unit was clean and neat, with lovely crisp cotton bedding that made me want to jump in immediately. However, I quickly strapped on my running shoes and hit the hiking trail, which had some stunning views! Our... More

We visited Elephant Leisure during a long weekend and was pleasantly surprised with the accommodation and beautiful surroundings. Our cottage was a one bedroom open plan cottage with beautiful views on the mountain. Kitchen was equipped with everything we needed, braai and great Jacuzzi on the stoep. Enjoyed our stay very much. We went for a short early morning hike... More
