This lodge has decent sized rooms , they are clean and cosy. The host is very friendly. The breakfast is decent. It is located in Tokai which is not a central place in Cape Town. You will however not regret your stay.

It's about a 25 minute journey from the international airport. Upon arrival, ring the bell and they will let you in to a parking space (left or right of the main building, as you wish). The rooms are really lovely, and quite cheap, and the family which owns the house is very nice as well. The outdoor area is lovely,... More

This was a fantastic place to stay in Hwange. "Dollar" was our game driver and he was knowledgeable and fun. Brightness and the other staff were friendly and professional. Room was clean and we even got a hot water bottle in the bed and a little fire made for us in the fireplace when we came back from dinner. Food... More

I stayed at the Elephants Eye Lodge for one night before my best friend's wedding. We had a lovely time, the rooms are great and very comfortable. Breakfast was scrambled eggs and coffee, with a stunning spread of cereals, toast, jams, and other treats available. Great for a home-away-from-home feel!

Only spent a few hours at the B&B - arrived late and left early - but I would really like to go back and spend more time there. Friendly service from Melanie and a good breakfast. Room was spacious and comfortable. Nice garden.
