Elandela is not a place – it is an emotion. It is the emotion causing laughter at welcome and tears at farewell. It is the emotion of inner amazement viewing the incredulous White Rhino, but also of trembling awe when looking straight into the creamy eyes of our White Lion!

Elandela Lodges are the fruits of the optimistic passion of its Owner Managers – the passion to share our enriching wildlife experiences exclusively with our guests.

Elandela Private Game Reserve is a privately owned wilderness adjacent to one of the world’s most famous game reserves: South Africa’s Kruger National Park! Our huge private reserve allows its Owners to pursue their White Rhinoceros and White Lion protection programs and is fundamental to Elandela Lodges’ objective of raising global awareness of the threats to the future existence of these magnificent members of Africa’s big five!

By offering two different lodges on the same private reserve, Elandela Lodges endeavor to provide viable options to the ever more specific needs of the ever more eco educated photo safari traveler.

Managing our two lodges – Elandela Lake View Lodge hosting up to 26 guests in Luxurious Suites specially designed for romantic celebrations and Elandela River View Lodge hosting up to 26 guests in Large Suites specifically designed for families and groups – personally, we are proud to showcase the elegance and tranquility of Elandela Lake View Lodge and Elandela River View Lodge to our guests!

Here at Elandela we pride ourselves on implementing the meaning of the word “ELANDELA” – track and follow the wild animals in their own bushveldt habitat. Come and experience the roars of our White Lions reverberating through Elandela Lodge – an intimate and exclusive haven for you and your loved ones in the South African Bush!
