White Elephant Safari Lodge, as a 5-star all-inclusive lodge, will be closed for refurbishing from 31 August 2019 and will re-open in January 2020

White Elephant is located in the heart of the 36 000 Ha Pongolapoort Bio-Reserve, along the shores of Lake Jozini. Ideally located north of Hluhluwe and Mkuze on the N2 near Swaziland.

Canoe the vast Jozini lake waters with crocodiles basking on the distant shore and the sound of hippos snorting lazily. Take a boat safari; fish the waters for the magnificent tigerfish or unwind with the dusky bird calls, a mellow sunset and the gentle lapping of water. Join our researcher Heike at our museum for a research-based educational Elephant experience.

White Elephant Safari Lodge will embrace you in early century safari romance. Dine on bush-cuisine under a star-studded sky or candlelit chandeliers. Meditate on the vast veranda, languish in the swimming pool under the Knobthorn tree, ponder the large variety of game from the hide overlooking a waterhole...

The 8 secluded luxury tents with splendid en suite bathrooms and showers exposed to the African sky allude to a by-gone era. Relax on your private 'stoep' surrounded by the majestic Lebombo mountains, beautiful bushveld savannah and distant, shimmering lake waters.
