Arathusa or Elephant Plains??1st timer please help

Has anyone been to these places or hopefully both. I cannot decide between the 2. This is our 1st time and wildlife is our priority but a really nice affordable lodge would be an added bonus.

They look to be next to one another on the map, is this correct.

They are indeed right next door to each other (a few miles apart), and as far as game viewing is concerned there is no difference. Arathusa is slightly more upmarket and priced higher. Ele Plains is very well priced, but their standard rooms are a bit basic. The luxury suites are nice though. If affordability is the issue then Ele Plains is your choice (if they have availability, that is).

Hope this helps! Let us know your thoughts about the lodge you went to.
