Mpumalanga - Elephant Point

The GPS decided to take us on a long route that passes one of the small towns with thousands of speed humps. We arrived an hour later than the time we expected to arrive. We arrived in the evening, as we entered the gate, there was a huge elephant busy eating from a tree, the manager asked us to drive in quickly so that he can close the gate so that the elephant doesn’t wander off on the street. That was our dramatic and exciting arrival. Elephant Point is nestled on the banks of Sabi river. It is 6 km away from the Kruger National, Paul Kruger gate. There are no restaurants on site currently it is purely self-catering. The lodge arranges starlight dinner experience on Saturdays and Wednesday depending on the number of guests that are interested. All villas are overlooking the river, animals can be spotted from the villas when they go and drink from the river. We spotted, hippos, elephants, zebras, and kudus. The temperature was quite high it ranged from 36-40 degrees. This place is serene and quiet and has the most amazing sunrise, most days I would wake up at 5 am just to watch the sun rises, this is Mpumalanga which means (sunrise)
