Elephant Plains Lodge
is located in the Sabi Sand Reserve
in the Kruger
area to the Northeast
of South Africa
Situated on a seasonal river to the west of this area, Elephant Plains Lodge is centred on intimate public areas, including a swimming pool, gym, spa, shop and television lounge. Guest accommodation is in five small chalets, seven much larger and more pleasant suites and one elegant honeymoon suite with a private pool. The fact that it is owner-run ensures reliable and personable service, leading to very high guest satisfaction. The prices are very keen indeed.
Activities are centred on vehicle safari and walking safari. Wildlife viewing in this Sabi Sand North area is reliable year round. The level of guiding here is usually strong.
The main potential downsides are the fact that the lodge itself is rather old fashioned and heavily built. There is the potential for adverse weather conditions Nov/Mar. Also, as with almost all the lodges in this area, different groups of guests are joined together on safari activities, unless you pre-book a private vehicle at significant additional cost.
In this Sabi Sand Central area the presence of fence lines, overhead telephone cables and road signs does detract significantly from the sense of wilderness, although that is true of almost all of Kruger.SeasonsPrices
