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

Recently, to try and battle our Winter blues, my Fiance and i took a trip to Citrusdal. Our accomodation was at the Elephant Leisure Resort. 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.

Arriving at night time, my boyfriend and I spent about half an hour driving around the area because it was so badly sign-posted. We had no clue where the entrance was and eventually found it after heading through a small opening next to orange groves, where (what looked like) an abandoned building lay up ahead. When we finally found our... More

My hubby and I enjoyed an awesome long weekend (02/07/2015 - 05/07/2015) in the beautiful mountains of Citrusdal! We've stayed over in Chalet No.8. I was very impressed with the accommodation and excellent service! We've enjoyed the adventurous hiking through the beautiful mountain and at night relaxed in a bubbly Jacuzzi! Thank you Anja and team for an awesome weekend!!... More

We went to spend the week for my birthday but while the area and scenery is beautiful, relaxing and peaceful, everything was disappointing. The unit needs an upgrade as the bathroom has mould ..The jacuzzi did not work despite Russell who is obviously not a trained electrician, trying his best. The canoes were unavailable , the TV was unavailable.the manager... More
