We had booked at this establishment to enjoy a peaceful weekend away. The reserve is breathtaking beautiful and the activities are awesome. We stayed in a 5 sleeper chalet located on the edge of a pond. While the location was stunning, unfortunately I had a few issues that let this establishment down for me. It was hideously hot on one of the days and sadly no air-conditioning available in the chalet. We were miserable! The only relief was to get in our car and drive around for most of the day. Given the KZN climate surely air-cons should be considered? The fan in the main bedroom was extremely noisy and the 2nd bedroom didn't even have a fan. The couches in the living room are horribly uncomfortable to the point you can't sit on them for too long. While I certainly wasn't expecting luxury accommodation,sadly basic comfort was lacking.

Our company was looking for accommodation for 14 people, from the first phone call to leaving three days later, the service was nothing short of 5 stars. Packed lunches, to arranging braai dinner for each person. There was never a problem to accommodate us !! I will be returning on personal holiday and would recommend it !!

Room tip: rooms on the dam very comfortable and peaceful, the rooms at the top have great view

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.
