overview

Elephant Safari Lodge is set in one of the beautiful valleys of the Zuurberg Mountains bordering the Greater Addo Elephant National Park, and is just a short distance from Port Elizabeth. This tented lodge blends into the surrounding bush and offers beautiful secluded suites tucked away in a forest of Yellowwood trees or elevated on a hillside, offering breathtaking views.

Elephant Safari Lodge is best known for its elephant back safaris, an absolute highlight of anyone's stay. Spend time walking with the elephants, observing them in their natural habitats, before climbing up behind a professional guide and experiencing this unique way of exploring the bush. Head out on game drives and fascinating walks on the vast property to learn about the wildlife and medicinal plants.

Traveller Reviews

  • SPEECHLESS. This was beautiful. Our sophisticated tented suite with extraordinary views of the bush and a waterhole, are elevated on a wooden deck with a private warm spa bath. Inside was a fireplace, candle lights and rose petals everywhere and Charlotte Rhys toiletries. Beyond & above one of our favorite rooms, definitely recommended for honeymoon couples ;)
