Situated just a 35 minute drive inland from Port Shepstone, Lake Eland offers a tranquil natural environment. Accommodation for overnight visitors is in self-catering wooden chalets or on caravan/camp sites. The chalets are situated round two dams, most hanging over the water's edge, so visitors can fish from their own deck or relax while watching for antelope that may come down to drink. All chalets have a fully equipped self-catering kitchen as well as an outdoor braai area.

During the day guests can drive through the reserve, visit the caves which are typical of those inhabited by the San people, cross the breathtaking Suspension Bridge and enjoy spectacular views of the Oribi Gorge (no 4x4 needed). Plains game such as giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and antelope including blesbok, impala and of course eland are found in the reserve. For the more adventurous, the Lake Eland Zip Line is the Africa's longest, and the 14 different stages make up an overall length of 4,5kms.

Our fully licensed tea-garden offers breakfasts and light meals (8am to 4pm). Browse in the curio shop for mementos and special gifts to take home. Horse rides, paint ball and guided game drives on request at additional charge. Close enough to visit for the day and far enough to escape the hustle & bustle.
