Elephant lodge is all about that magical quotient called ‘location’. It occupies one of the best stands on this secure, private estate bordering the Sabie River and overlooking the iconic Kruger National Park. Waking to the sounds of grunting hippo and nipping upstairs to the roof deck with a steaming cup of morning tea to witness the elephants drinking is what living in this glorious bush house is all about and because it’s just 8kms from Paul Kruger Gate and a mere 45-minute game drive to Skukuza airstrip, it’s easy to access from Joburg and Cape Town.

Moroccan-African in style, Elephant Lodge has been designed to live in absolute comfort while experiencing the best of the bush. Outdoor showers with views of the bush, wonderful soft sofas on a shaded verandah overlooking the pool (ideal for an afternoon siesta), or a sheltered boma meal under the stars – what more could you want? Guests who stay often return as loyal visitors because elephant lodge offers one of those rare combinations: interiors sensitively curated by an interior designer owner and excellent flow and privacy for everyone. Handpicked treasures from Morocco and India fill this cool and relaxed oasis, but those who find it hard to leave for game drives and guided walks – or even a game of golf nearby – can relax and chill on the deck and listen to the call of the fish eagle overhead while buck rustle in the grass nearby.

A final word from a guest: ‘occasionally in one’s earthly wanderings once chances upon an experience that reshuffles perspective and tugs a heart chord. Elephant Lodge is the gem that was a singular stand-out vignette. We will treasure our nights under these skies, lovingly ensconced in the homely aesthetic and heart-felt generosity that this family home exudes. We are grateful that our children could sense the spectacular and embed it in their memory.’ There is no doubt that this is a legacy investment, one that can be enjoyed by all generations for years to come.
