experience
Our family of 5 had an amazing experience with Elephant Plains. The staff went above and beyond to ensure that we had a great time, and that our little boy was taken care of. We loved the game drives, there was so much to see and explore, and many of the famous “big five” were roaming freely the the surrounding area. One of our highlight was the 6 or so giraffes that we saw walking along the main road on our way out to wave us off!!! Overall a fantastic experience and we hope to be back again!

Fantastic location in Sabi Sands Game Reserve. Guides were incredibly knowledgeable and went out of their way to make our trip perfect. Up close to leopards, lions, rhino and buffalo. Food was excellent! Lovely quiet property with view over a waterhole. Two swimming pools with one close to our room was very convenient. Beautiful deck around the restaurant. Such a great experience that my partner proposed ❤️ Perfect in every way!

This place is in a simple word Amazing. It was a magical stay we bonded with the staff they made us feel very welcome and the place is just perfection. I will comeback and do another Safari in South Africa in the future and I will make sure to stay In the same lodge. Elephant Plains has excellent facilities, amazing food and a staff that just makes you feel welcome and like you are the only thing that matters to them. Thank you for making our stay so magical and a big thanks to Darryn, Max and Derek. Thanks to them we got to see the big five and much more. An experience we will never forget. Thank you!

8/10 Very good

It's a great place and provide great rides. Andrew, ranger, and Dion, tracker, were amazing. There is only one problem for this place-- condition of the road to get there. We drove by ourselves and deeply regretted it. It looks like an hour drive by google map, but it took up to 4 hours. The road supposed to be a paved road, but it had a million of potholes. We were nervous for the whole time if we were on the right track. I wished we would have been warned about it beforehand. But other than this, Elephant Plains is great. We saw a leopard and a cub for the first ride. We had great time staying there.
