Just returned from a memorable stay at Elephant Plains. Wonderful, helpful, personable, welcoming staff. Small enough so you get to know everyone. Beautiful grounds and rooms. Good food and vegetarian meals available. Flew into Hoedspruit and EP arranged transfers - everything went smoothly (arranged thru My Gr8 Safaris), driver was waiting and we were first out of the airport. Arrived to EP in time for lunch and the afternoon game drive. Our ranger (Richard) and tracker (Clement) were an excellent team - were able to see the Big 5 in 2 nights. I can definitely see the benefits of staying in Sabi Sand - we were only able to see the leopard and lions because we went off road. On the last night, Richard showed us the stars. It was a perfectly clear night and I've never seen more stars! There's internet available on the computer in the lobby. Small gift shop. Bar. Spa. Gym. Can send mail or exchange money at the front desk.
Pros: Terrific staff. Great food. Relaxing spa. Beautiful room - clean, comfortable, views of the animals. Quiet and peaceful. Lovely lodge with lots of character and special touches.
Con: Having to leave.
Truly a memorable stay. Thank you Elephant Plains! A friend recommended EP and I highly recommend others to stay at EP as well.
