Mpumalanga - Samba Walker was here:
Nestled in the dense shrubbery of the bushveld are thatched huts called rondavels (yes they’re round) replete with netted canopy beds and soft white linen, plus wooden decks overlooking the dry river bank and sub-tropical woodland. Elephant Plains Game Lodge is romance and adventure wrapped in old-world South Africa safari trimmings; a place where spotting leopards, lions, cape buffalo, elephants and rhinoceroses is almost assured. There are even webcams hung around Kruger National Park! By day, trackers load up Land Cruisers for game drives to traverse the Sabi Sand Elephant Plains concession for up-close sightings of hippos, wild dogs, leopards… and in the evening, as hyenas begin howling, relax in the spa until drums summon all to a traditional outdoor Boma dinner.
