About Elephant Sands Lodge

At Elephant Sands Lodge guests can enjoy viewing elephants as they drink from the waterhole right in front of the lodge or from our swimming pool. We also have a wide variety of other wildlife that can be viewed, from lions to giraffe and buffalo.

We offer 24 rustic chalets comprising two Family Chalets and 22 twin chalets. There is plenty of camping space overlooking the waterhole. The campsites do not have electricity. There is a restaurant with a set menu for meals.

Safari: Take a game drive or a game walk with one of our trained guides, or relax and take in the view of our waterhole. You will mostly see elephants but there are also other wildlife such as lions, giraffe, kudu, jackal and zebras.

We were generally disappointed with Elephant Sands primarily due to the noise. The resort was pretty packed on the Monday that we arrived and due to the numbers of guests, we found it noisy from both revellers in the bar and also general activity around the site. Only one elephant arrived at the water hole on that day which could have been due to the noise or that there was plenty of water around elsewhere. On our second day, the resort was much quieter, however there was still noise from the bar until around 11pm. One could also hear traffic on the nearby A33 throughout the night.Apart from...

Outdoor outdoor ablusions need some attention. We went a bad time of the year. Too much Rain, thus no game/elephants for 2 days. Overall good experience. Restuarant food is good value for money.

As the name of the lodge says: Elephants roam right through the camp. Amazing to see these majestic animals coming to the waterhole in the center of the camp. Offered bush walk and evening game drive very informative.

Elephants passing your campsite with only a couple of meters in between. So close you're holding your breath, wow!! Amazing experience! Cosy and tastefully decorated restaurant and bar area. Again with view on the waterhole. Wonderful place, which we can recommend to anybody. Would love to go there again in future!
