Zaheer and his wife Zaheera were married in Durban, celebrating their union with over 500 guests. They chose the solitude and serenity of White Elephant Lodge for their honeymoon. They went on a late afternoon game drive and local photographer, Rolene van der Merwe to captured some of their precious moments in the bushveld. Zaheera is a physiotherapist at a hospital and Zaheer is in the corporate world.

Rolene said: “They are such a stunning couple and it is always a pleasure to capture the love between two people.”

This was their feedback: I would highly recommend this establishment if not for the food and luxury, but for the service and scenery. Spent a few nights of our honeymoon at White Elephant and we were blown away by the service and overall experience of this safari lodge.

From the moment we entered the camp we were greeted with friendly faces and five star service. Dinners under the stars were amazing and as it was our honeymoon, the team endeavored to make the experience even more special.

Activities in the bush were so enlightening. We really got a feel for the bush and learnt so much of the history of the park, it's amazing wildlife and just how much effort and time it takes to ensure all the parks inhabitants are looked after and healthy. George, our game ranger, was a one of a kind gentleman. My wife and I were blown away by how much of time he took to show us around, and just how great he is at his job. Really an amazing human-being. Please ask for him by name if you visit White Elephant.

Our room was elegant, romantic and rustic enough to feel as if you're in the bush but opulent enough for feel as you have everything you need right there. The outdoor shower was great, as was the actual tent and view of the lake.

If I have to describe each meal, it would take me a while but the overall descriptor I'd use is...astoundingly delicious. Honestly a simple but wholesome, organic palate.

Overall, my wife and I have promised to return sometime in the future and hope to see all the familiar faces again. Thanks again, White Elephant. You made our honeymoon a very special one.
