From the moment we arrived my 10yr old daughter and myself were made to feel so welcome, we were greeted by carina the lodge manager, the staff were singing and playing the African drum as we walked up the path. Elandela is beautiful, the grounds and lodge are immaclate the staff are amazing and can't do enough to make sure you are well looked after. Steven the chef checked to make sure we were going to enjoy the food he was going to prepare for us, the food here is lovely and you certainly would not go hungry!!! The boma was a lovely surprise on our last evening eating outside with the sound of the hippos nearby. The game drives were the highlight of our stay and our ranger was a lovely man called jv he gave us plenty of time to admire the animals we had spotted, seeing the white lions so close was quite emotional, his knowledge of the animals,birds and the surrounding area was incredible, this man never seemed to sleep he worked such long days and always with a huge smile and great since of humour, jv is a huge asset to elandela, both jv and carina are very passionate about what they are doing to help protect the white rhino. We had an amazing time at elandela thanks to the lovely hardworking people that they employ.
