The Manyeleti Honeymoon suite offers guests a stunning view, elegance and privacy. In addition to the regular luxuries this glass fronted suite boasts a private splash pool and day bed.  
The six luxury suites are also glass fronted and decorated in warm, earthy tones with a natural design and architectural flow.

The suites all feature air-conditioning, overhead fans, fireplaces, electronic safes, mosquito nets, mini bars and tea & coffee making facilities.

The five rondavels are set in the garden of the original family holiday camp where a feeling of the old bushveld charm still lingers. The rondavels have been renovated and redecorated and boast sundecks, en-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning and overhead fans, mini bars, tea & coffee making facilities, electronic safes and mosquito nets. While elegant and luxurious, the rondavels offer affordable game lodge accommodation.
Overnight rates include accommodation, three meals, two game drives and a guided bush walk daily.

The Elephant Plains main lodge houses the reception, lounge, dining areas, bar and wine cellar as well as a curio shop and small library. Other facilities include two swimming pools, a gym, health spa and games room. In addition, facilities at the lodge provide and cater for small conferences and small, intimate weddings. Day trips through the nearby Panoramic Route can be arranged.

Founded in 1948, the Sabi Sand Game Reserve is renowned for its game viewing experiences. With no fences dividing Sabi Sand and Kruger National Park – visitors have the chance of excellent close up encounters with the Big 5 (lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard) and possibly even wild dog and cheetah sightings. Game drives are conducted twice daily in open-top 4 x 4 vehicles with experienced and knowledgeable rangers and trackers – lasting about 3 hours each in the early morning and late afternoon/early evening. Rangers traverse an area of 4500 hectares. Guests are also invited to partake in a daily guided bush walk, which is undertaken after breakfast and lasts for about an hour - introducing visitors to different plant and tree species, animal spoor etc. Keen birdwatchers will be spoilt, with over 300 different bird species and star gazing evenings can be held on request, weather permitting.

Elephant Plains Game Lodge is committed to preserving the environment that is their livelihood. The lodge staff are passionate about ensuring the presence of the lodge, is as unobtrusive as possible ensuring that future generations will also be able to enjoy it. The main objectives are the sustainability of a healthy, balanced habitat through conservation processes and a contribution to the socio-economic development of the surrounding communities. Various measures, including the regeneration of erosion sites, removal of alien plant species, habitat management and block burning and special off-road driving precautions have been put in place and are adhered too. The lodge strongly believes that education is the biggest contribution to conservation – knowledge is shared not just with guests who become ambassadors but also with staff and in turn members of the nearby and surrounding villages and communities in an effort to ensure a sustainability of resources but also through a combination and sharing of different types of knowledge and expertise, creating a product that is beneficial to everyone. Local suppliers and services are used wherever possible.

Elephant Plains Game Lodge offers excellent Big 5 Game viewing opportunities, sumptuous cuisine and a variety of luxurious accommodation options, in its own special little corner of Africa!
