White Elephant Safaris Joins AfriCamps

Posted by Dr Heinz on Fri August 16, 2019 in General.

2019 heralds Safari Lodge’s 20th anniversary, and with it comes major changes.
Over the past two decades our guests, agents, operators and staff have loyally supported us turning Safari Lodge into a much loved, special destination.
However, times have changed, and with it, dramatic shifts in the tourism market. Thus, we have made a strategic decision to enter the ‘glamping’ arena and we will be refurbishing the Safari Lodge into 12 self-catering tents, which will be opened in January 2020.

Our joint venture with AfriCamps, South Africa's boutique camping specialist, will offer guests all the thrills of nature combined with the comforts of home.
Our team will manage and maintain the camp, keeping the Safari Lodge image that we have passionately developed. Game drives, boat cruises, guided walks, tiger fishing, black rhino tracking and elephant research program will remain on offer to our guests.

Food services will include a breakfast and braai basket freshly packed (uncooked) to order; a signature of the AfriCamps experience.

All the administration and marketing will be handled by AfriCamps, however, White Elephant Bush Camp, umKhaya Cottage and our new White Elephant Research Camp will continue unchanged.

Bookings for the new AfriCamps at White Elephant can be made through the affiliate link on our White Elephant website (www.whiteelephant.co.za) or on the AfriCamps (www.africamps.com) online booking system.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause for existing bookings and know that you will embrace this new adventure with equal enthusiasm.
