Spending a night with the Ellies was a dream come true. The rooms in the lodge are extremely comfortable and set around the Elephant's Boma where they come in to sleep at night. The main lounger overlooks this area and our room (Harry's Room) also had a window where we could watch the Ellies from. We also booked a sunset ride and the pleasure of riding on Clyde and Shaka followed by a lovely 3 course meal in the restaurant.
We were up again next morning to take the Ellies out at 6.30 and spent another hour or so with them before breakfast. This was one of the highlights of our holiday and we highly recommend that if you can you must spend at least one night sleeping with the Ellies. You might not get much sleep but it is an amazing experience. The guys at KEP do an amazing job in looking after these wonderful creatures and educating the public about them.
