Location: 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, and is renowned as one of the top spots
in Africa for viewing and photographing leopards in the wild. It is also where well-heeled visitors looking for the ultimate in an African safari experience
can choose from a handful of
the most luxurious private game reserves in southern Africa, 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.
