We recently spent a weekend camping with the kids down at the lake campsites. The sites down at the lake are all spectacularly situated right along the grassy banks of the lake. Each site has it's own gazebo structure with a built in prep table which is an ideal addition for shelter and convenience. The sites themselves are relatively compact and so are ideal for 1x family or 2x small families. However all the sites are adjacent to each other so it is also very conducive for a group booking for multiple sites. There is no electricity down at the lake campsites which makes this a legitimately ideal camping experience. However the common ablutions and boma just behind the sites are fantastically clean and well kept and you can grab a hot shower courtesy of the self-serve donkey boiler. An extra addition to the campsite area the rustic fisherman's cottages just behind the camp sites which are great options for anyone not willing to camp, but wanting the privacy and tranquility of the lakeside experience. In terms of activities, there is a multitude of options right down at the lake, as well as within the entire reserve. from hiking and cycling trails, self-drive adventures and fishing to the zip-lining and gorge bride. In general, a visit to Lake Eland is a must for any young family and I cant recommend the lake campsites highly enough. We will certainly be back.

My family and i had a 4 night stay to enjoy Lake Eland and we were very satisfied with every aspect.
The staff is very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about everything in and around Lake Eland.
Lake Eland is very clean throughout, and our room was spacious with everything that we needed.
Lake Eland is very peaceful yet fun and has everything you need to entertain friends and family.
I would highly recommend a stay at Lake Eland and we would like to thank Willie Britz for everything.

This Reserve is really worth visiting when at the Oribi Gorge.
It has a wide range of accommodation and a very good restaurant.
There are a lot of activities to keep you busy and by the looks of things their zip lines over the Gorge are the most popular.
The suspension bridge over the Gorge is magnificent provided that you are not scared of heights.
All-in-all a must see place on the South Coast.

We stayed for three nights as 2 families with small children. What a lovely place. Well looked after. Clean accommodation. Loved to see all the wildlife, even from our veranda. Nice game drives and lovely picnic spot at the bottom dam. Amazing views across the gorge. Zip line was awesome. Had the chance of a lovely trail run while doing game viewing. Would definitely go back. Enjoyed the pool, but it might need some maintenance soon.
