Welcome to Lake Eland Game Reserve

Game reserve activities and accommodation in the magnificent Oribi Gorge

Covering an impressive 2500 hectares with diverse ecosystems of bushveld, grassland, coastal forest and wetland this natural landscape offers a place of peace and tranquility.

Brothers Eric and Trevor Dunstone purchased the land for conservation and founded the reserve in 2003. A large lake shaped like the eland common in bushman paintings gives the reserve its name “Lake Eland” in honour of this magnificent antelope and its symbolic meaning to the San. This natural landscape is truly a place of peace and tranquility and can be found just a quick 40 minutes drive from Port Shepstone, South Coast of KwaZulu Natal.

Lake Eland Game Reserve is the perfect venue for day visitors, a family holiday, team building  or romantic getaway.

Activities to choose from include a self game drive, viewing the abundant wild life and flora to be seen from the comfort of your car. In addition guests can walk across our 80m suspension bridge, as well as our fabulous Zip Line Tour.

Horse rides, walking and single track mountain bike trails, paint ball, fishing, picnic sites  and specific 4×4 track are available.

The restaurant and fully licensed tea garden is close to a children’s playground.
