    This place is in a simple word Amazing. It was a magical stay we bonded with the staff they made us feel very welcome and the place is just perfection. I will comeback and do another Safari in South Africa in the future and I will make sure to stay In the same lodge. Elephant Plains has excellent facilities, amazing food and a staff that just makes you feel welcome and like you are the only thing that matters to them. Thank you for making our stay so magical and a big thanks to Darryn, Max and Derek. Thanks to them we got to see the big five and much more. An experience we will never forget. Thank you!

    It's a great place and provide great rides. Andrew, ranger, and Dion, tracker, were amazing. There is only one problem for this place-- condition of the road to get there. We drove by ourselves and deeply regretted it. It looks like an hour drive by google map, but it took up to 4 hours. The road supposed to be a paved road, but it had a million of potholes. We were nervous for the whole time if we were on the right track. I wished we would have been warned about it beforehand. But other than this, Elephant Plains is great. We saw a leopard and a cub for the first ride. We had great time staying there.
