Elephant Country Guesthouse 

Perfect for a tranquil stay. Focusing on the outdoors, our luxurious, child-friendly Elephant Country Guesthouse is situated next to the Elephant Sanctuary at the Crags in Plettenberg Bay on the scenic Garden Route of South Africa. Guests of our child-friendly bed and breakfast accommodation are privileged as they can enjoy moving, interactive experiences with and sites of the resident five elephants next door whilst enjoying the magnificence of untouched nature in the comfort of affordable luxury surroundings. 

Our Accommodation 

The French Victorian décor with its rich colours offers the discerning guest a stylish, modern ambiance with breathtaking views over local vineyards and the majestic Tsitsikamma mountain range in the distance.

Fitted with the finer comforts of today, of course, like en-suite bathrooms, Wi-Fi, barista-like coffee stations in the five, individually decorated suites, you will be forgiven that you won’t waste time unpacking your bags but head straight to meet the local gentle giants. 

The beautiful lounge areas with their winter fireplace open up to a terrace overlooking a lush garden with private nooks for relaxation. Apart from the incredible nature views from the garden, you can watch the 5 resident elephants in the bordering Elephant Sanctuary, an experience unique to our guesthouse.

As the sun begins to set, get ready for one of Africa’s best night skies to unfold. Without any light pollution, the stars will guide you to map out the night sky whilst listening to the sounds of silence. Then wake up whilst the elephants enjoy their breakfast right next to you - you couldn’t ask for better company!


The beauty of our Elephant Country Guest House lies not only in its stylish guest rooms with its rich colours and five-star hospitality. The real beauty shines from the heart of its conceptualisation. Our affordable luxury bed and breakfast, with a self-catering option, was created to support and sustain five elephants who found themselves in the custody of wildlife visionary, Craig Saunders, founder and owner of three Elephant Sanctuaries throughout South Africa. Visit The Elephant Sanctuary in Plettenberg Bay and take a tour, where you can enjoy unforgettabel elephant experiences, e.g. walking trunk-in-hand with these gentle giants. Think of abundant wildlife experiences and birdsong echoing from every tree and you might just have found your ultimate holiday destination.
