              We visited Elephant Plains for just one day. Our stay was great, game drives were very good, we saw a lot of animals! The cabin we stayed in was perfect. Dinner and show surprised us because we didnt expect that. We loved it there!

              Wonderful stay and great value for money. We stayed in one of the rondavels and we found them to be quite luxurious. We saw all the big five during our stay and even a cheetah! The food was delicious and as vegetarians we were catered to very well. Rangers and staff were very friendly. We stayed at 3 different lodges during our stay and this was our favourite.
