Accommodation near Lake Eland Game Reserve

The Lake Eland Game Reserve is a 5000 acre reserve in KwaZulu Natal. It is within a 40 minute drive of Port Shepstone on the South Coast. The reserve has a lot to offer day visitors, from wildlife and adventure activities to scenery. Its most famous attribute though, is without a doubt the Oribi Gorge!

The Lake Eland Game Reserve is home to a number of birds and other animals which call either the open grasslands or the canyon environment home. In the gorge, which is rocky with cliff faces surrounding it, is home to birds such as Crowned eagles and Knysna woodpeckers and is a haven for rock-loving hyraxes. On the grasslands you will spot plains game such as zebra, eland, mountain reedbuck and bushbuck among others, and birds like Secretary birds and Martial eagles.

The scenery and fauna can be viewed on an organised game drive or a self-drive safari. The roads, which are very well maintained, offer a variety of routes which encompass the most popular sites, including the caves, various look-out points and the 80 metre suspension bridge which provides a whole new perspective on the Oribi Gorge.

The longest route in the park takes 3 hours to complete, after which you can enjoy a meal at the reserve's in-house restaurant, which is famous for its venison burgers and outside deck with its beautiful view over a large dam. There is also a delightful picnic and braai area for the do-it-yourself type, which is set next a stream under a huddle of trees.

Apart from traditional game viewing other activities offered inside the Lake Eland Game Reserve include horse-riding, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and for the adventurous, a 4,5 kilometre zip line tour.
