We absolutely loved our stay at the chalet as a family, and were warmly welcomed by Nicolas. Being at this secluded chalet on the Elandsvlei Estate was amazing for relaxation and bonding for us as a family, away from the noise and hustle and bustle of city life. The chalet is very neat with a modern look and feel, and probably one of the best kitted self-catering places we have stayed in. A big win in the evenings was that during loadshedding slots, backup power was provided through a generator somewhere on the estate. That was bliss. Things we also enjoyed were: having our meals by the lapa next to the dam, taking short game drives to view some of the game on the estate (we were sad not to come across any buffalo), taking in the wonder of a star-lit sky at night. In our experience, the peace and tranquility of this place is unparalleled. Thank you Nicolas for this absolute gem. We hope to try out your farmhouse with some friends in the future.

My friends and I are still hangover of the wonderful weekend we had at Elandsvlei Estate farmhouse. Everything was on point, from the kitchen to the bedrooms. I highly recommend this stay for family and friends. The host, Nicolas, was incredibly welcoming, he was responsive and catered for our every need. The place was clean and the pictures of the place are accurate although the rooms look bigger in person. When you there I highly recommend that you go hiking and go on the gamedrive for the full experience, see the animals, see the nature.

We spent an amazing Easter weekend away at Elandsvlei Estate! The layout of the house works so well for family groups with everyone being able to have their own space and bathrooms but then also come together to enjoy the entertainment areas outside. We were able to walk and cycle around the farm and really enjoyed spotting birds and wildlife. The kitchen and house are well appointed and Nicolas was welcoming and available to respond to any of our queries.

We enjoyed our stay at Elandsvlei Estate. Nicolas was so friendly and welcoming, he made sure that we get there without getting lost, when we arrived he was there to welcome us, show us around and explained everything, such a nice guy and lovely host.

The facilities are of top class, the pool was clean, the showers were clean with hot water.

During our stay we went for a hike which was so refreshing, we will definitely go back again and visit.

Elandsvlei luxury tent is the the most secluded romantic getaway. The farm is incredibly beautiful with gorgeous trees and bushveld. There is an abundance of birdlife and magnificent animals. The private dam near the top of the mountains makes the getaway extra special. The accommodation can not be faulted in any way and nothing has been forgotten. Nicholas, the host, was friendly and helpful. Best anniversary treat yet, 27 years. Hope to be back soon.

We received a friendly welcome by the owner on arrival. The location was absolutely perfect and the accommodation was well equipped, clean and luxurious. We hiked, did self drive game viewing and cooled off in the many dams on the farm.
Absolutely worth a visit - a must do!

Beautiful, clean and well equipped with battery lights for night time.
We went for hikes as well as drives.
Lovely rock formations and trees ( as well as game of course). We enjoyed the birds in the ficus overhanging the verandah. We will definitely go again.

Elandsvlei is a perfect place to unwind and relax in the bush. It is quiet, scenic and comfortable. The cottage is well equipped although some fans would have been useful. The views are beautiful and the deck and boma lovely places to chill out. Host was friendly and accommodating. Maybe a map or two to help with walking trails would have been useful too.

Thank you for your review and for staying with us at Elandsvlei Estate. Sorry if it was a bit hot in the room, usually the temperature is quite comfortable as we are at 1600 m elevation, and the chalet has high thatch roofs. As for the maps, most people usually use their phones/google maps for satellite imagery of the farm, but we will now provide printed maps if requested by a guest. Hope to see you back again!

We spent 4 days enjoying long hikes, bird life, and cycling in the beautiful surroundings. The accommodation was immaculate with attention to detail. Would certainly recommend it to anybody who needs to get away from the rat race.
