    We stayed in a honeymoon suite which is simply perfect. It has beautiful views from the terrace right into the wilderness so we could spot monkeys, impalas, and nyalas from there. The game drives and bush walks were absolutely great. We were lucky to spot the Big Five within 2 hours on our first game drive. The rangers were great and tried everything to give the guests an unforgettable experience. Also, the reception personnel and the service team were very friendly, helpful, and positive. Both lunch and dinner were okay. Nonetheless, we were totally happy and had a great time!

    It was hard to get to but worth the drive! Elephant Plains Game Lodge has an excellent accommodation and attentive staff. They took care of every little detail and they served delicious food. We were there for 2 nights, enjoying our stay thoroughly. Morne, our guide, had experience and expertise to follow 2 buffaloes to the water hole where 5 lions were resting. Pretty soon, right in front of our eyes, lions attacked the buffalo. We were able to record the whole 19-minute live kill on our phone. We saw all the Big Five and babies as well. We loved our stay, game drives, and would definitely recommend it to others!

    My wife, my daughter, my son, and I stayed there for 3 nights in one of their rondavels and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our rondavel was neat and spacious with comfortable beds and mosquito nets. We were late to arrive at the lodge on day one and missed our evening game drive by half an hour. But the staff was kind enough to take us in another safari jeep and make us meet our safari jeep somewhere midway. About the game drives, what I can say is that our ranger, Louis, and tracker, Thomas, were excellent. If watching the Big Five is important, then we saw them in our second game drive itself. Before each game drive, Louis would ask us what would we like to see and went out of their way to fulfill our wishes. I remember on our last drive, I said I wanted to see a fully grown male lion and my wish was fulfilled again. Thank you, Louis and Thomas. About the food, every morning the chef used to personally come to our breakfast table and ask us our choice for dinner, even preparing kiddie meals for our children. The sightings were amazing and one of the best places to see leopards. The entire staff was very warm and accommodating. Overall, it was an excellent stay that I enjoyed to the fullest. I highly recommend this place.
