Elephant Plains Game Lodge is an intimate, family-owned
lodge situated within the Sabi Sand Wildtuin (game reserve).
Sabi Sand, 65,000-ha in extent, is adjacent to South Africa's premier wildlife reserve, the Kruger National Park. The area is renowned as home to a number
of Africa's most exclusive and luxurious private safari lodges, including Mala Mala, Singita, and Londolozi.
The dividing fences between Sabi Sand and Kruger Park have been dropped, allowing the spectacular variety of wildlife to
roam freely between the two. The Sabi Sand Wildtuin has earned a
reputation as one of the top spots in the world for viewing and photographing leopards in the wild.
