The Manyeleti Honeymoon Suite
The Manyeleti honeymoon suite provides honeymooners, or guests that are just romantic at heart, with elegance, privacy and a stunning view. This glass fronted suite has all the regular luxuries and also boasts a private splash pool and daybed, ideal for a mid-morning nap.
These exclusive, open-plan suites each have a lounge, double bedroom, en-suite bathroom and a private viewing deck that offers spectacular views over the riverbed and open area. All suites feature air conditioning, overhead fans, fireplaces, mosquito nets, electronic safes, as well as mini bars and tea & coffee facilities.
The five rondavels are set in the beautifully landscaped garden of the original family holiday camp and one can still feel the old bushveld charm upon entering. The rondavels have sundecks, en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, overhead fans, mini bars, tea/coffee facilities, mosquito nets and electronic safes. While elegant and luxurious, the rondavels offer affordable game lodge accommodation.
Safaris and Bush Walks
At Elephant Plains Game Lodge, you can experience world–renowned game viewing in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, which borders the Kruger National Park with no fences separating them. Not only will you have a chance to see the Big 5, but you may be lucky enough to spot the more elusive wild dog or cheetah. The lodge is situated in a dry riverbed, making it a favorable habitat for leopards. Over time and with a carefully planned habituation process, some of the animals have become comfortable with the game drive vehicles, allowing guests to watch them in their natural environment. Birdwatchers can also rejoice, as there are over 300 species of birds they can observe. Two game drives occur each day, each lasting about three hours, with coffee and rusks served during the morning drive and sundowner drinks during the afternoon. After sundowners, the tracker will use a spotlight to find nocturnal animals. Guests can also take part in a bush walk led by a ranger or tracker, where they can marvel at the animal tracks, birds, plants, and more. Please remember to wear comfortable shoes and bring sun protection. All walks must be taken in the company of a ranger or tracker, and guests are not allowed to leave the camp area.
