We recently stayed for three nights at Elandela as part of our honeymoon in South Africa and it didn't disappoint. We were warmly welcomed by all the staff on our arrival and we were very kindly given the honeymoon suite which had its own private courtyard with a jacuzzi. It was a prefect end to our trip. The game drives were fantastic, both the game rangers were so knowledgeable and answered any questions we had. A particular thanks to Carina for our walking safari and for moving the spiders out of the way! We saw all of the animals and much more, the location was amazing. The food at the lodge was both varied and plentiful. The chef Steven provided us with different meals, one night was an African BBQ, the next a five course meal. It was all delicious and Steven would take the time to come to the table and tell us what he was cooking. All the staff were both friendly and helpful, they are a credit to Yvonne and Rocco who have such a wonderful place.
