    Unless you buy one of their activities (walks, game drives, boat etc) you're pretty much confined to your tent. You're fined if you drive or walk about on your own. Absolutely fine for a mini break, but I personally wouldn't do it for more than 2-3 days.

    Spacious, well equipped and super clean. Beautiful views. Each tent feels isolated from the others so you really get a sense of being alone in the bush. Various buck and warthog cruise past the tent all day, and there are many birds to watch. There was absolutely nothing missing as far as the kitchen and amenities go - they have thought of everything. Loved our mini break here!

    The wood was no value for money. Too little and no other place to buy. Make sure you show the true size of the wood bundle for R40 to the customer. Make sure the jacuzzi is full of water in order for heat to work.

    I liked the room and the anamals walking around your tent. I liked the privacy and customer service was so friendly. Beautiful places

    Nothing really... Experience was great

    The facilities are awesome... The whole 'tent' with the patio, braai, etc. , the location, the hot tub... (they drain and replace the water for each guess).. Great value for money.

    Fridges didn't get cold enough but we were there in December when temperatures were very high.

    One of the best experiences in the bush with wild game right outside your door. The beds were very comfortable and the tent was fully equipped with everything you need. Was an awesome stay and we were sad to leave. Staff were amazing and assisted with anything you needed. Will definitely be back!!

    Aircon doesn’t help much with the heat - but I don’t think that can be helped. Try to go during the cooler months rather.

    Amazing views from the tent! Patrick was amazing on the river cruise - we saw lots of animals! Very peaceful and tranquil! Just needed to occupy the kids a bit - but we came prepared!

    The swimming pool was not optimum clean. I could not see the bottom of the swimming pool, but this did not seem to bother other guests.

    The location is excellent and there is ample space between the tented bungalows. The views are fantastic and it's nice to see the wildlife so close around the bungalows.

    Absolutely nothing. I loved every single thing about the entire experience. Just a tip, White Elephants Safaris is fully self catering and the nearest grocery store is about 30kms away so come prepared. There is plenty space to stock up :-)

    EVERYTHING. This place is perfect. Ideal for a relaxed getaway, it's so peaceful and has everything you need. The staff are like family and are so helpful. The views are breathtaking.
