The rooms were clean.The reception was beautiful. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. The safari was the best. In short, we were more than impressed and we are are definitely going back
The lodge is very clean and comfortable. You can see the staff work very hard to maintain the property and grounds. View of the Rhinos in the lake superb! The guides on the safari tours are very informative, we had John and Lymon, both excellent. We were fortunate to see the big 5 on our trip, all of them during our stay in Elandela. The white lions are stunning, I have never seen anything so beautiful. The trip to Kruger national park is a must. I loved the décor in the bar an restaurant very African and rustic. Service from all staff in the lodge was excellent! The boma evening was fab, dancing and singing by members of the lodge team and we got to join in! Relaxing by the pool between safaris is needed!
It would have been nice to have some African dishes to try.
Everything was perfectly. Mamma is the best. And everybody takes care of us. Amazing. A dream !!!!!!
Nothing. Is perfect.
The game drives with the rangers were excellent and we could see incredibly variety of animals. The trip to the Kruger was worth it. Rooms very clean and comunicating door was nice to have the kids close by. Wifi connection worked fine.
Variety and quantity of the food was average A cofee before the morning game drive would make it nicer to be awake. Service at dinner professional but too fast
We are a family of four adults .We loved and enjoyed everything about our stay at Elandela! Thembie was the most wonderful hostess.. looking after all our requests and needs. Our room was spotless with a very high level of cleanliness through the whole property. Our rangers John and Taleen were so knowledgeable and made our drives really interesting and fun ! The food was so delicious and tasty .. we were not expecting that in the middle of the bush! We thoroughly enjoyed the bbq and boma evening with the singers and dancers ! Great fun ! Our drive thru Kruger was amazing .. especially seeing the cheetahs and the elephants .. sadly no lions or buffalo that day ! We appreciated John’s cooked breakfast in Kruger ... yum !! The white lions on the Elandela reserve were very special and we thoroughly enjoyed our drives there . It was our first safari and we couldn’t recommend Elandela highly enough !
