We spent 6 awesome days at Elephant Leisure resort in Citrusdal. The chalets are lovely and clean. Unfortunately we chose the hottest time of the year to be in Citrusdal and the cold pool did not cool us off enough but Anja was very helpful and told us about the river (about 2km frm Resort) and that was lovely and...

We ended at Elephant 'luxury' resort after a disaster with booking at Biesiesvlak. The good: Aircon worked, jacuzzi worked and a very beautiful setting. You do feel like you are in nature so from that point its great. The bad: Broken tiles around jacuzzi, bathroom etc. No dstv decoder in unit 6. Lack if attention to detail i.e bulbs and... More

We stayed at Elephant Leisure Resort over the Christmas period and we looked forward to a relaxing and luxurious stay as seen on the website. When we arrived at the resort there was no reception area, other guests gave us a number to phone and after repeated phone calls the manager finally answered and told us we are at unit... More

Enjoyed another 2 days at the resort, had no TV so spend more time outside the room. I tackled the walking trial again early morning which was very relaxing and enjoyable. Went with plan just to unwind and relax as there isn't much to do and that suited us fine. The Jacuzzi functioned properly again and is worth the extra... More

We stayed there for two nights to explore the Cederberg area. The property is isolated which is great for peace and solitude, something to keep in mind if you plan on exploring. The alley leading to the property is a bit off putting at first. Landscaping is still in the making. No wifi in the chalets, and slow wifi by... More

We stayed at the end of November for 2 days and 2 nights and were pleasantly surprised! The chalets were very nice and the aircon was a blessed relief in the blistering heat. The jacuzzi on our porch was great & clean and we had chalet number 2 which meant we did not have to look directly into any other... More

Initially we stayed at one of the newer units, and then moved to a slightly older unit, both were fine, well stocked with crockery, and a fridge for your perishable items.

We had a fantastic time at the resort and occupied chalet no 3 for two nights. Everything was clean and tidy and I was impressed the quality of the bedding, towels, crockery and cutlery. This is the perfect getaway - quiet and relaxing Enjoyed the 2,5 hour hike to enjoy the magnificent view of the valley. Things that could be... More

Elephant leisure was amazing. Comfortable bed, full kitchen with anything you could need, and most important of all: a jacuzzi under the stars. The service was also incredibly good--flexible and responsive booking and firewood brought right to your door for the nightly braai (bbq)! There's a great 1.5hour loop trail right on the back of the premises (we saw a... More
