Elephant Plains Game Lodge If spacious luxury and incredible African style is your definition of a fantastic getaway, look no further than the Elephant Plains Game Lodge.
Elephant Plains Game Lodge is ideally situated within the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, which covers approximately 65 000 hectares, and is part of the 2.2 million hectare Greater Kruger National Park. Although the Manyeleti River only flows in years of particularly high rainfall, it provides a stunning backdrop for the lodge, together with the 4500 hectares of diverse habitats that range from clay-based plains and hilly woodland interspersed with dolerite ridges to mature riverine areas. Fauna and Flora of all variety are therefore plentiful. Although the river may be dry, the lodge overlooks another huge watering hole, and the movements of the animals are captured live on an Africam wildlife camera.
Elephant Plains Game Lodge is situated on the dry Manyeleti riverbed, overlooking an open area with a watering hole. Our Africam wildlife camera, which gives website visitors a live view of possible Big 5 sightings, is located in the big Jackalberry tree, facing the watering hole. The lodge layout caters for the discerning traveller, offering different types of accommodation to cater for a variety of needs. Five rondavels are set in the beautifully landscaped garden of the original family camp. Six luxury suites and the Manyeleti honeymoon suite are comprised of, a lounge area, indoor and outdoor showers and a private deck. The Manyeleti honeymoon suite has its own plunge pool.

At Elephant Plains Game Lodge you can be sure of game drives and bush walks that will live up to the Africa of your imagination! Not only will you have an excellent chance of close encounters with the Big 5, but you may even be spoiled with the more elusive wild dog and cheetah sightings.
