Description

The Elephant House is a small exclusive lodge only minutes away from the Addo Elephant Park. Situated on a beautiful race horse stud and surrounded by rolling lawns and indigenous trees this is the perfect place to return to after a hot day in the bush.

The lodge, with its thatched roof, wide verandas and exceptional service is reminiscent of the old colonial safari experience. The antiques, superior fabrics and the owner's private collection of Africana art gives on the feeling of cosseted luxury.

The eight luxury rooms are all individually decorated and guarantee that the guest has a truly relaxing experience. Four rooms are twin bedded and four rooms are queen bedded. Every evening the drinks tray is brought out for sundowners and dinner is a sumptuous candle lit affair.

Spend the day exploring the Addo Park or Shamwari game reserve or relax around the pool. A number of half day tours of the Sundays River Valley are available whilst Shamwari Game Reserve and Schotia Safaris are only half an hour away, making this the perfect base from which to visit all the attractions in the Addo area.

                  This was our second visit to The Elephant House. Although it has been almost 10 years since our last the friendly and efficient stay was as good as before. The Lodge has been developed and expanded in that time but I would defy anybody to see the joins. We were brilliantly looked after including spotting a flat tyre and changing the wheel for us. Well done to the owners and staff.

                  We enjoyed our 3 day stay at elephant House and we were impressed by the friendly and helpful staff. We also got the impression the owners are never out of touch and could be seen around the establishment during the day at all hours. The ambiance and lodge layout allowed for plenty of opportunity to relax in private.

                  I booked for my family and two other families at Elephant House and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were fantastic and I so wish I could be there right now.

                  My parents came back raving about your establishment. They enjoyed the care for detail, and mentioned the number of lovely features like bird feeders you have there. They also like the way the clean laundry was presented in the basket. They went out on a day trip with a canoe and a hike, which they greatly enjoyed. All in all, they enjoyed their stay tremendously and said to us that they would happily recommend it to anyone.
