Area Information:

The estate takes its name from the elephants that can frequently be seen drinking and grazing on the banks of the mighty Sabie River. More specifically, the famous elephant bull "Mandleve" which translates as "Ear or Torn Ear", was one of the famous Magnificent 7 who lived out his days along this particular section of river. He died in the Kruger National Park close to Elephant Point, his long tusks weighed about 150kg, being heavier than any of the famous Magnificent Seven.

The Elephant Point property is situated on the edge of approximately 5km of river frontage, the river rises in the Great Escarpment with its source being near the Long Tom pass and flows past Elephant Point across the width of the Kruger National Park into Mozambique ending in the Indian Ocean. There is a romantic interpretation that the origin of the name "Sabie" is the anglicized version of the Zulu word "Saba" which means "fear". It was said this arose as the local people feared going to this river because of the high numbers of lions, leopards and crocodiles to be found there, all of which can still be seen and heard up to this very day from the lodges within Elephant Point.

Property Facilities:

Enjoy long lazy days relaxing on the loungers surrounding your private swimming pool, all whilst watching the wildlife stroll past your patio. Then finish off your day with an open camp fire under the stars in your private Boma, listening to all the incredible sounds which come to life in the Kruger National Park at night.
