Chose a weekend that rained nonstop. The tents eventually started condensing water inside. Water kept dripping through the covering onto the campsite and into the kitchen area.
We were to be there Friday to Tuesday.
We left on Sunday afternoon, cold, wet and disappointed. Maybe we'll try another time!!!
The camp looked very nice and would have been greatly enjoyed if not for the rain, I'm sure.

Okay. 3 out of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the privacy that Elephant Root tent gave us. The tent was spacious, clean, comfortable and offered everything we needed. Thorn Tree is just lovely - a very friendly and peaceful place to spend a weekend away from the city. The bush sounds were incredible and we loved every moment!

It was an excellent service from the lady at reception, to the tour guide un till we left. It was our first time camping, so our expectations were completely different from what we got. The elephant tent made us to feel at home.

We had an absolutely amazing Easter weekend. Our kids first Camping experience and truly 5 star I must add. The camping site is in immaculate condition and Rodney's sister who was managing the site for the weekend was amazing. We will most certainly be going back. It's a hidden gem and not even an hours drive from Johannesburg, perfect for a weekend breakaway from the city.
