Elephant Walk Retreat
The name Elephant Walk Retreat seems only fitting because the area itself had become a much-loved spot for magnificent herds of elephants, sometimes over 200 elephants to visit on a daily basis for a drink. The youngsters love to play amongst the reeds, while the adults spend the hot, sunny days taking a dip in the river. The elephants love to visit and come right up to the fence.
Over the years, Elephant Walk Retreat has continued to expand however the aim has always been to keep the lodge as small and intimate as possible for their guests. The retreat was created to be a haven for those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and experience the magic of the Kruger National Park exclusively.
The retreat caters to all travellers by offering a variety of accommodation from basic to luxurious self-catering, all nine of the units boast superb views of the Crocodile River. The quaint, gorgeous log cabins have catered for families and couples from all over the world. The kitchens are fully equipped including a microwave, oven, stove, kettle and toaster.
The log cabins are raised on stilts and are fully air-conditioned. The log cabins all have a private deck which is furnished. Sip on a glass of wine, and watch the sun go down, as the bush comes alive in the evenings right in front of your log cabin. A barbeque (braai) area is situated next to the log cabin. A large swimming pool and communal relaxation area is situated on the property. The pool is filled with crystal clear borehole water and is the ideal spot to spend those Lowveld sunny days while reading a book or sipping on a refreshing beverage. There is a wide step leading into the swimming pool, which is perfect for the kiddies, and the older folks.
Three thatched Lapa areas surround the pool, with comfortable seating. Elephant Walk Retreat is the perfect destination to relax, unwind and switch off all electronics, but should you require WIFI, you can visit the reception area of the lodge where you can connect. All accommodation are cleaned and serviced once per day. The nearest town is Komatipoort and is 12km away, for shopping and dining.
