My timing was perfect – I arrived just in time for a delicious light lunch on the deck watching a family of elephants in the dam below that kept us wonderfully entertained. The youngsters were swimming, using their trunks as snorkels and spraying their elders, and being swiftly admonished. Highly amusing! Game drives were just as rewarding. Back at camp there’s a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.

GUEST FEEDBACK

Elephant Rock
09 Jan 2014

"Awesome experience. Staff made us feel so welcome and couldnt do enough to make our stay more special. They were happy to do anything for us. Very impressed when they kept showing my 11 year old daughter interesting things around the camp - she loved it. The bubble bath was such a lovely treat and all the hand made notes and little chocs made us feel like they really wanted us there and appreciated our business. Game drives were wonderful and game ranger very friendly and fun. Would have liked to be told a bit more information about the animals we saw - sometimes you dont want to ask things in case the other people already knwo the information. Definately will return:)"

"We had an absolutely marvellous time here! The booking was so easy, and from the moment we arrived there we felt really comfortable and special! The accommodation was wonderful, the staff so friendly and the food gorgeous! One of the best holidays we have had! Seeing 4 out of the Big 5 was a bonus...Thank you for a fantastic, relaxing time. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a game park with luxury!"
