Lake Eland Game Reserve is situated near Oribi Gorge and is about a 40 minute drive inland from Port Shepstone.
It is a privately owned game reserve and offers various types of accommodation but day visitors are also welcome. The facilities and activities offered here include game drives, horse riding, walks, cycle tracks, a small restaurant and others.
Mammals that may be seen include Burchell's Zebra, Giraffe, Blesbok, Blue Wildebeest, Oribi and Eland. There are also many species of birds and wildflowers that may also be seen.
One of the highlights of Lake Eland Game Reserve is a swing bridge spanning part of Oribi Gorge. It takes you to a view site on a rocky outcrop. For those that aren't too keen on heights (like me!) you can walk on a easy pathway to get to the same spot. This is well worth a visit.
