We stayed in Erindi Elephant Camp. This is a self catering camp. The farmstall however provides you with almost everything you may need regarding food, including bread, meat, fruit and vegetables so there is no real need to bring this in from outside the reserve. The road from the B1 is well maintained and takes about an hour. The chalets...

Hello Geert, Thank you for your review of Camp Elephant. We appreciate the feedback. It sounds like you were impressed by our self-catering chalets and our farm stall.

Situated about a 2 hour drive from Okahandja (the road can be a bit challenging if it has been raining) Erindi is a magnificent privately owned game farm. I spent a weekend after a conference and was thoroughly spoilt. The Lux rooms are beautiful with a bath and shower, and a small patio overlooking a waterhole (even though the hole...

My wife and I stayed over for a few days to recharge and again thoroughly enjoyed the stay at Erindi. Meals were of the highest quality and the rooms beautifully furnished. Employees were very friendly, but have to say that there were small things that were detracting from the wonderful experience. Since this was not our first visit we had...

We only stayed for one night at Old Traders Lodge. The restaurant bar area is overlooking a waterhole, which was pretty busy with game. The room we were in was lovely (superior room) and overlooked a smaller waterhole; we were very lucky to see a black rhino come down to drink just after dinner about 20 metres from our back...

Our family (kids aged 3&5) of four visited Camp Elephant for four nights. It was a very relaxing trip which provided loads of quality family time. The water hole around which the chalets were built provided a constant movement of new animals, but we never saw any of the Big 5 here. The only game drives we were allowed to...

Hello Hannelie, Thank you for your review of Camp Elephant. We appreciate the feedback. We are saddened that you did not see any of the big 5 at the waterhole, as there were many special visitors at the waterhole recently. We only allow Under 6's on their own specialized game drive as it is best for their safety that large...

I was very happy with the one night stay we had here on the way to coast. The lodge was very nice, the food was excellent, the place next to the waterhole with residing crocodiles and hippos. I haven't seen such great setup anywhere else. Out ranger and game drive was excellent too.

When entering the lodge restaurant and bar area, you have an incredible view overlooking wildlife in front of you. drinking a G&T while looking at the hippo's, crocodiles and other animals, this is really holiday.
