We stayed two nights at the Manyeleti suite for our honeymoon and had a wonderful time! Elephant Plains is a cosy, family-owned private lodge with friendly and attentive service. The suite was large, clean and beautiful, overlooking the private reserve.
All the Elephant Plains staff...More

This was our third time at Elephant Plains and it was a very good idea to return. The lodge was renovated since our last visit and we believe it lost a bit of authenticity. We stay in the same rondavel where we were last time....More

I am pretty sure Rondavel #5 faces down to the water hole, it had the most fabulous views and was possibly the most privately situated rondavel. We had 4 which was also very private and had a great view. We loved it, but I'll tell you, no one spends much time in their rooms! All the rondavels have their own deck.
