We chose elephant leisure because we needed real natural sounds, fresh mountain air and a fireplace. Greeted by a chorus of birds on arrival and comforted by our warm cottage, we left refreshed and renewed. Under new ownership, its awesome to see the effort and love going into the ongoing growth of this patch of paradise.

This is what I call relaxing in the beauty of nature! Tranquil and beautiful. Setting is fantastic!!!! The unit is private and you have your own space! It was such a "breath of fresh air" feeling. I could have stayed much much longer! Me and my friend did ourselves a favor to go to Elephant Leisure Resort and will be... More

A delightful escape! After a long week, I was persuaded to spend an evening relaxing at Elephant Leisure. I was a bit unsure of how it would work out in light of the prior reviews but, wow, I am so glad I went for it anyway. Elephant Leisure is much closer to Cape Town than many of its peer resorts...

The setting is beautiful! Evening bbq's under the stars and early morning hikes through the blossoming fynbos is exactly what we needed for this weekend away. The units are well fitted out with great cooking utensils, a wood burning fire and clean and comfortable bedding & towels. The basic stoep with its freestanding braai adds to the experience of being... More

What a little gem! Elephant Leisure is tucked away in a kloof outside Citrusdal. Our unit had a great view from the stoep. Both bedrooms were en-suite, which is quite surprising as we expected VERY basic facilities from previous reviews. Some elements do need updating, but the new owners were working on that. We hiked into the surrounding hills on... More

We decided to on the spirit of the moment to visit Citrusdal, the wonderful lady at the Tourism Info office told us about the accommodation at Elephant leisure resort. Fortunately they had one unit open. It was the coldest weekend of the year with snow on the mountains. The unit is basic but had everything we needed (including a bag... More

When we got there, the porch light was fused. The plastic shower floor was cracked and covered with a shower mat. It could seriously injure you. We paid extra for gas for the fireplace. It lasted only 3 hours presumably because the pipe leaks. It was so cold that my fiance got sick. No wine glasses or mugs. Place needs... More
