White Elephant is the only lodge in South Africa to offer Kariba-like, water based safari activities (motorized and canoeing) as well as the traditional land based activities. This sets us apart from other safari destinations.

We are passionate about conservation and offer a superb Black Rhino tracking experience (with an excellent chance of viewing Black Rhino on foot), as well as fascinating Elephant research activities. We also offer the conventional activities such as game drives, educational bush walks and incredible boat cruises on Lake Jozini. These varied activities as well as the chance of catching tiger fish and superb bird watching possibilities, make us a truly unique South African Safari experience.

White Elephant is the perfect romantic retreat for newly weds and anniversary celebrations.

White Elephant Safari Lodge (TGCSA 5 star) captures the history and romance of a bygone era. The deep verandah, sweeping views and tranquil setting provide the venue for a unique African experience. Eight luxurious safari tents, each with romantic ball and claw bath, outdoor canvas shower and private veranda provide an evocative safari in the Pongola Game Reserve Wilderness.

White Elephant Bush Camp is an ideal self catering escape from the busy hurried world for families and friends. Seven spacious Thatched en-suite chalets with quality linen and overhead fans, open plan kitchen, dining room, bar and swimming pool with spectacular views ensure a “close to nature” relaxed ambiance.

Life is a journey

Life is a safari

Life is a myriad precious moments

In today's hurried world, we overlook these moments that make life happy and worthwhile

We need to readjust our focus from the journey's end to the 'now', and then the small moments and the magical simplicities that surround us, become visible

We invite you to take time to see, hear, sense and savour the small moments

Celebrate the journey of life, with us!
