    Casual, simple but very nice, memorable experience

    Extremely fun views from our lake room, many animals frequent the common area - hippos, zebra, giraffe, monkeys all ran around at different times -- very exciting! Staff tries very hard all the time, and food above average due to creativity, but not fancy. Game drives fun with many animals, and knowledgeable guides. Great place to stay, however there is a gap in expectation between the website description and the actual lodge. The lodge is small and so flexibility in meals/eating options, free-time activities, bar limited. Also, rooms are nice, but simple touches are missing -- burnt out candles in room, towels not replaced, mini bar with waters not refilled, etc. Also, dinner is served without main course options, also always eating our main course before we had our water/drinks, no music, candles not lit etc. Small stuff that may sound a little ridiculous, but a little discouraging because of website expectation, frequency of 'issues' and since these are easy, inexpensive fixes for the lodge. However it is a casual, intimate, quite lodge which offers a very authentic bush feel. I would recommend for the 'down to earth' traveler who doesn't demand 5-star pampering, but would like to feel welcomed with the local people who work at Elandela. They will welcome you with sincerity, cleanliness and kindness at Elandela, however you must offer them patience, happiness and an 'open mind' to the style of their culture.

    Amazing stay

    Lovely enjoyable stay from start to finish. The game driver Tallin had a great deal of knowledge about all the animals which was very interesting. Managed to see a lot of different animals.

    Good place but staff attitude needs to change

    Very good property but let down by curt behaviour of Mrs Rocco. Talked to guests like they were truant school children. Introductory briefing sounded more like instructions. Room could not be locked & had to sleep 2 nights with unlocked room - Management did little to rectify. But safari & rangers were excellent. Managed to see the Big 5 which was the highlight of the trip. Food was also good.

    Don't stay here

    Terrible "safari" experience, hotel provided mosquito nets to several rooms but not ours, drivers were late for game drive and very unknowledge of safari. Also they charge for water on safari with +40 weather. We skipped one of safari drives as we felt unsafe. Our driver was eating on the drive, which is the one the thing anyone whose been on safari or with basic animal knowledge knows - you can't eat on safari!!! Safe your money and mostly important vacation time! Go anywhere else.

    Great Experiance - Game Reserve

    We had a good experience during our stay. We were here for a couple of days and had gone for 4 game drives (one @ Kruger NP). We specially liked the way we were welcomed in the lodge. Lil disappointed with the food as we had very less options for Asian Vegetarians. Were able to see big5 except Leopard and various other animal & bird species. Had a great time @ bonfire during first night with their traditional song & dance. Overall a superb experience!!
