One of the more generously appointed Sabi lodges, the main building is home to the dining areas, bar, lounge and wine cellar. You’ll also find a small library, games room and curio shop while those after a bit of exercise can choose between two swimming pools and a gym. The African Health Spa takes care of those who prefer to wind down with massages and pampering treatments.
Meals are a combination of international cuisine and South African specialities. Sit down to breakfast and lunch in the dining room or on the pool deck but suppers are usually served around a cheerful fire in the outdoor boma under the African sky.
Activities at Elephant Plains Game Lodge
- Morning & Afternoon Game Drives
- Spot-lit Night Drives & Stargazing
- Guided Nature Walks
- Bird Watching
You’ll sit back to game sightings from the comfort of the lodge’s viewing deck but the Sabi Sands wilderness waits to be explored and you’ll enjoy morning and afternoon game drives with expert guides. The Big 5 are naturally the most sought-after animals in the Sabi Sands and Elephant Plains has a healthy reputation for these iconic creatures but you’ll also be on the lookout for wild dogs and cheetahs too. The area teems with regular game from giraffes and zebras to antelope and baboons, and with over 300 recorded bird species, it’s a great choice for birders too.
Local Shangaan trackers accompany the drive, increasing your chances of great sightings. Afternoon drives return to camp with a spotlight illuminating the darkening landscape, ideal for spotting elusive and unusual nocturnal animals. And if you want a change from game viewing by 4X4, your guide will lead you on a nature walk, pointing out the smaller details – footprints, insects and medicinal plants. Informative and entertaining stargazing sessions complete a well-rounded experience.
