Elephant Rock is a boutique lodge situated in the Big Five, malaria free, Nambiti Private Game Reserve in the heart of the Kwa Zulu Natal Midlands, an area well known for its Battlefields from the Anglo-Boer war. The Nambiti Private Game Reserve is home to the “Big Five” as well as about thirty other game species, including cheetah, hyena and hippo. The bushveld on this game reserve has incredible biodiversity including savannah, grassland, thornveld and tall acacia trees of the Tugela Basin biome. The birdlife is prolific with several rare bird species found in the ravine bush alongside the two 40 metre waterfalls of the Sundays River, which flows through the reserve. Nambiti is close to both the Anglo/Zulu as well as the Anglo/Boer battlefields. The Battle of Elandslaagte was fought partially on Nambiti.

The lodge is small and intimate and has five well-appointed luxurious chalets well-spaced for total privacy and have either sweeping views of the active waterhole or indigenous bushveld with abundant birdlife. The lodge will be for Africa Memories Travel exclusive use for our group ensuring personalization and exclusivity. A staff ratio of one staff member per guest ensures phenomenal service and personalised attention to detail.
