Elephant Point is an exclusive 290 hectare estate bordering the nearly 2 million hectare Kruger National Park, the jewel of South African National Parks, and overlooking the magnificent Sabie River, one of the country’s most biologically diverse rivers. The spectacular vistas in this pristine environment inspired Legacy’s vision of Elephant Point and its luxury lodges designed to maximise the expansive views of the river and park.
The Sabie River, which dominates the landscape with its power and majesty, truly is one of the greatest features of this spectacular development. It is home to abundant birdlife, hippo, crocodiles and the awe inspiring herds of elephant that come to bathe and play, which give the estate its name.
In this unrivalled location, lodge owners will enjoy daily sundowners – likely with new firm friends made with other owners – on their own private decks; watching the famed African sun as it slips over the horizon with a gentle sigh, signalling to the nocturnal wildlife that it’s their turn to shine. At one with themselves and at peace with nature – this is the experience that motivates nature lovers to become lodge owners.
Just 7km away, the Paul Kruger Gate grants visitors entrance into the national park, where on any given day a typical game drive will usually deliver sightings of most if not all of the Big Five. Indeed, this area, the Skukuza area, is not only the most game-rich area in the park but also has the park’s highest concentration of leopard, and as aficionados will tell you, this cat is the most elusive of the Big Five.
A mere 20 km drive from the gate delivers guests to the bustling Skukuza Rest Camp – the park’s biggest camp, and also known as its “capital”. Here options include a round of golf, dining and a chance to learn of the area’s history in the Anglo-Boer War. Lodge owners who prefer to fly in to Elephant Point will likely also use the nearby Skukuza Airport to land and park their planes.
When the call of the wild becomes a distant echo, the lodges beckon their owners and guests take respite in their warm embrace. The exceptional use of a natural colour palette and textures, along with the finest fittings and fixtures, and African-style décor and furnishings, yields a result that is pure, effortless, sophisticated luxury.
