The lodge area

Welcome to Witfontein Elephant Lodge

Witfontein Elephant Lodge was finished in June 2009, and will be your home away from home and starting point for every hunt.

A design experience awaits you. The buildings are designed in an African architectural style with beautiful animal carvings in the pillars, furniture and in the large bar.

In each room you will find a safety box and adaptors for European and American plugs. The beds and duvets are imported and of the highest standard. Witfontein Elephant Lodge has all the high-end and modern facilities you need, but we have consciously omitted TV’s and other modern disturbances (WI-FI is available at the bar) as you should be relaxing and enjoying an authentic African adventure.

Witfontein Elephant Lodge has its own full-service facilities such as a larger dipping pool, sunbeds and towels, a lounge area, boma, bar area, outdoor grill and a large kitchen from where all your meals will be prepared. Companions who stay behind at Witfontein during the hunt may be directed to Witfontein Safari Lodge for lunch, or they will dine with the returning hunters at Witfontein Elephant Lodge. Every day the designated guide will inform the companions as to where they will dine as well as any other practical information.

We are proud to be able to offer our hunters a five-starred experience in the South African bush. Witfontein Elephant Lodge has 8 comfortable double rooms and 2 large suites. Additionally we offer a VIP Hunting Bungalow with a private covered terrace. The bungalow is approx. 100m2/1076 sq.ft. It has a large living room and two bedrooms – each have an en-suite bathroom as well as a walk-in closet.

When the day’s hunt is over and the gathering darkness appears, we meet around the fireplace in the traditional boma and exchange hunting stories in a relaxed atmosphere while enjoying a cold beverage.

Witfontein Elephant Lodge has its own personal chef who will spoil you with high-end quality and exciting menus. Our bartender will customarily be ready from noon until the last guest goes to bed at night. Housekeeping will come by every day to clean your room as well as the common areas. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer laundry service for hunting parties who spend less than six days at Elephant Lodge hunting.

For hunters staying at The Elephant Lodge, we have altered the opening hours for the curio shop at Witfontein Safari Lodge. During the welcome briefing, you will be informed of the shop’s opening hours.
