Why Mpumalanga?


Mpumalanga has many iconic landscapes that include the Blyde River Canyon, the world's greenest and third largest formation of its kind. Majestic waterfalls, natural geologic phenomenon, historically significant towns and cultural heritage sites make for a fascinating destination. Apart from its natural and historical significance, the province is also known for adventure activities and is of course, one of the few places in the world where you can tee off with a giraffe or hippo nearby.

Although not in the park itself, the lodges are set alongside the banks of the magestic Sabie River where mighty Elephants can often be seen grazing and drinking - from which the estate takes its name.

Within close proximity to other comparable exclusive world-famous game reserves, Elephant Point can be said to be in a league of its own. With every comfort possible, game viewing from your lodge, nature walks within the estate, various dining options available, a mobile spa on call, and intuitive service - you'll never need to leave your luxurious private lodge.
