Day 1 - Hoedspruit Airport to Sabi Sands Game Reserve

On arrival at Hoedspruit Airport you will be met and transferred to Elephant Plains Lodge.

You will have some time to settle in and familiarize yourself with the lodge and its facilities before heading out on your first open vehicle game drive! All game drives are conducted in specially adapted 4x4 open game drive vehicles to allow our guests the best possible vantage point. The game drive will take around 3-4 hours.

Mealtimes are a sociable affair and served under the stars, weather permitting. Meals tend to be a combination of both international and South African cuisine, using only the freshest of ingredients.

Day 2 and 3 - Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve
Breakfast | Lunch | Dinner

Elephant Plains Lodge offers two game drives per day, during which your experienced game ranger and expert local Shangaan tracker will share their extensive knowledge and love for the African bush with you. Due to a carefully planned and managed habituation process, animals and birds in the reserve have become used to having the game drive vehicles in close proximity, without feeling threatened. This allows you to get really close to them and forms part of the appeal of the private game reserves.

Elephant Plains Lodge offers bush walks after breakfast and guests are welcome to join this morning walk. The rest of the day is spent at leisure, relaxing in your room or at the pool. Lunch is served around 14h00. The afternoon drive often extends into the early hours of the evening, allowing you the opportunity to spot some of the more nocturnal animals.

Dinner is served under the stars, weather permitting. The day ends with discussions around the open fire about what you saw today and the plans for tomorrow.

Day 4 - Sabi Sands Game Reserve - Hoedspruit Airport

An early wake-up call and coffee sees you heading back into the bush in the hope of seeing more of Africa’s spectacular wildlife. Upon your return breakfast is served.

Directly after breakfast you will be transferred back to Hoedspruit Airport.
