Elephants Drift Game Lodge
Description A reasonably-priced but exclusive, unfenced Big 5 Game Lodge in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, forming part of the Greater Kruger National Park, offering either catered or self-catering accomodation and safari experiences. Elephants Drift Main Camp is a charming classic camp, consisting of a number of separate thatched buildings looking out onto the bushveld. It is situated on a riverbed under huge shady trees. After good summer rains the small dam on which the camp is situated pushes water up to the edge of the outdoor living area Rooms The camp was rebuilt and refurbished in early 2010 and consists of 5 large en-suite rooms, with private verandas and secluded bush views. One of these is a family room, which sleeps up to 5. There is a comfortable lounge, bar and dining area, a covered barbeque area near the river waterhole, and a swimming pool. The newly built and picturesque Parrot Tree Tented Camp is situated in one of the more remote and most beautiful parts of our wilderness property It consists of three two person walk-in tents, one Meru safari tent which accommodates four people, a kitchen, and outdoor living area under the trees. All are on decks on the edge of a cliff overlooking a magical riverbed and waterhole. The ablutions are supplied with hot and cold water and the camp runs on solar power. At Elephants Drift individual rooms can be booked on a full-board basis for one or more people. You are also able to book exclusive use of the whole camp for groups of 4 to 10 people on either a self-catering or fully-catered basis and at discounted and affordable rates. Two game drives or walks a day are included with all options. If you book the whole camp, both Main camp and Parrot Tree Tented Camp will be available for you and your group’s exclusive use during your stay. You can decide whether you wish to spend all your time at just one of the camps or part of your time at each. An option is also to do a day’s walking safari to Parrot Tree Tented Camp through the wilderness hills and along the riverbeds. You can spend a night or two here and then walk back to Main Camp. Your personal belongings will be transported by vehicle. Activities Unlike many game lodges, at Elephants Drift we do both game drives and walking safaris depending on your preference. Both are conducted under the careful (armed) supervision of Manager and Guide, Brad Black. Brad has a great passion for the African Wilderness and loves to pass on as much of his knowledge and passion about the bush to others. He has a particular passion for walking in the bush and has conducted walking safaris in "Big Five" areas for many years. Brad has 10 years of guiding and lodge management experience throughout southern Africa and is an accredited FGASA (Field Guides Association of South Africa) Trails Guide. Children under the age of 16 years are not allowed to walk in the bush. During walks they will either be taken on a game drive or will remain at the camp under adult supervision. The area borders on the mighty Olifants River which is a magnet to wildlife in the dry winter months and the Klaserie River is also nearby. The wilderness is crossed by a number of beautiful dry river beds with tongue-twisting African names like Nkankomichi, Hlangari and Nkanyini. These flow as torrents during most rainy seasons and (when dry!) are ideal shady routes for walking safaris; the Parrot Tree Bush Camp overlooks a particularly lovely one as does Elephants Drift Main Camp.
