Dear all,

We stayed at you lodge at the end of March for 3 nights and we just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying with you. We had a fantastic time, fantastic game drives with Wayne and Derrick and did not want to leave. Your perfect service impressed us especially. Daniela as a vegetarian did not have to think about the meals at all and everything was perfectly organized. Thank you for a great time!! We are actually already thinking about our next visit. As we will get married shortly, we are thinking about a Honeymoon trip to Kruger Park and another stay at Elephant Plains. Should there be any honeymoon specials, please let us know. However, we will come back in any case. :-)

Thank you again and best regards from Germany,

- Niels & Daniela -

In summary, Elephant Plains Game Lodge exceeded our expectations from every angle and we would not hesitate to recommend your facility to anyone who might be remotely interested in a safari holiday. I have tried to find a simple word to describe your lodge and our experience with you. My dictionary tells me this: "Perfection is, broadly, a state of completeness and flawlessness." I'll go with that...
