We treated my father-in-law & his new wife to a "honeymoon" break that they asked that we join them on, to make it a bit of a "familymoon". It ended up being 6 of us & we stayed 3 nights & absolutely loved every moment of it. The main lodge & the tented suites were luxurious, romantic & furnished beautifully. The wind blowing the tent canvas did keep us awake some nights, but it was still just lovely being in the bush & far from the madding crowd. The service was fantastic & our ranger was a really good guy. The food was superb, as was the hospitality. We absolutely loved it & would highly recommend White Elephant & would love to return sometime.
