Warm. Elegant. Peaceful. A perfect place to rest. Reminiscent of a traditional African safari camp, Kaingo Elephant Lodge offers the ultimate luxurious safari experience. Built from natural stone with thatched roofs, the luxury game lodge has an olde worlde-Africa atmosphere, while also being completely contemporary. All comforts are catered for, and the décor is nature-inspired.
Only 28 guests are accommodated at Elephant Lodge, ensuring the focus is on personal attention, superb service, and complete comfort.
Each suite is designed with an African wildlife theme, and features dark wood, earthy colours, and leather finishes, creating a wonderfully rustic, elegant atmosphere. The suites feature crisp white linen, en-suite bathrooms, and other essential modern comforts. The Leopard House unit is ideal for families or those seeking added privacy. It has two en-suite bedrooms, a lounge, dining area, private plunge pool, and thatched lapa and firepit.
The private reserve surrounding the lodge offers plenty of opportunities to explore and discover the wonders of the African bush. Game drives, nature walks, river cruises, birding, and visits to ancient rock art sites are some of the exciting and fascinating activities on offer.
A focus on conservation and an ethos of living in harmony in nature makes Kaingo a victory for conservation in South Africa.
