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.

Everything was great. Was therefore disappointed when we wanted some hot water for our flask before leaving at 06:00 and the lady at the kitchen was not helpful at all and told me to wait for half and hour.

Setting of accommodation around water hole is quite something. Great restaurant area overlooking the water hole.

We had a very short stay, we arrived after 19:00 and left at 05:00 am...BUT in the dark we couldn't see the main road back to the tar and we got stuck in the sand. Luckily there were some other campers who pulled us out. So please please, it will be great if yiu can mark your roads clearly. We only had a Carolla. The road we came in with was perfect, but we couldn't see the same one to go out with. Thank you.

A natural set up around a Elephants drinking place. Unique and incredible to get so close to elephants bush circumstances An elephant lover ? This place may not be missed.

Great Place.But please get rid of the swimming pool; it attracts people that are not really interested in the real assets of the place: elephants
