We stayed for 4 nights in unit 17, a 6 sleeper on the lower dam. The unit was clean, the view lovely and the setup is really peaceful.
These units need some attention, as all 4 doors in the unit trouble, the electric frying pan was broken, the emergency lamp was out of order etc
Also, if you plan on fishing from your unit, ask for a unit on the top dam, as the weeds and lily's have taken over the bottom dam.
The game drives were rewarding and zip lines exhilarating.
Fishing was a flop, without even a bite in 4 days. We tried 2 dams and the lake.
Also, note that all fishing is catch and release, even though it isn't clearly communicated in advance.
And if going in winter, pack really warm clothing, it gets very cold inside the chalets. We burned through 2 bags of firewood every evening!
For shopping , try the Maryland convenience store, 50m from the Lake Eland entrance. It is well stocked and much cheaper than the Lake Eland store. More
