The Elephant House - Addo Elephant National Park

The Elephant House - Addo - Malaria Free Eastern Cape

The Elephant House is an exclusive 9 bedroomed lodge situated near the Addo Elephant National Park in the fertile sun-drenched Sundays River Valley.
The wide verandas (filled with comfortable sofas) forming a series of courtyards are a defining feature, while the d├ęcor at Elephant House evokes colonial & African images and is furnished with the owners' private collection of antiques, Persian rugs and Africana art. The 9 spacious bedrooms open onto courtyards & private verandas.
The chef serves lovely light poolside lunches and after “sundowners” a memorable three course candlelit dinner is prepared with flair and personal attention.

After a safari, retreat back to the colonial luxury of The Elephant House – order an ice cold cocktail (we recommend a Bombay Sapphire G&T with Angostura bitters or another house specialty in Pimms No1!) and take a dip in one of the two swimming pools alternatively you may simply want to find a quiet corner in the gardens or one of the courtyards to put your feet up and relax with a good book. (After all, you are on holiday!)
In the high season (October to May), Monday to Friday Tobeka Gana, our in- house masseur is able to offer our guests a complimentary pampering session in her purpose built “treatment room and boma”
Full body massages - Manicures & Pedicures - Indian Head Massages - Sports massages
The kitchen prepares lovely light lunches on the terrace or beside one of the pools, and in the evenings , after a sundowner, sit down to a delicious three course dinner prepared by our chefs using the very best of local produce.
