Location: Elephant Plains Game Lodge is a private, family-owned lodge situated within the 65,000-ha Sabi Sand Wildtuin (Game Reserve).
Sabi Sand, adjacent to South Africa's famous wildlife sanctuary, the Kruger National Park,
is renowned for its luxurious private safari lodges such as Mala Mala, Singita, and Londolozi.
There are no dividing fences between Sabi Sand and Kruger Park, allowing the prolific wildlife to roam freely between the
two. The Sabi Sand area - and Elephant Plains in particular - has earned a reputation as one of the top spots
in Africa for viewing leopards in the wild.
