Hillcrest Camera Club - Elephant Rock Lodge, Nambiti - Date Change 2018

Posted by Hillcrest Camera Club on Monday, August 21, 2017

Hi everyone

Update on Elephant Rock Lodge

We have changed the dates to 14 to 17 January 2018
We have four people confirmed who want to go. We need six more, in order to book out the lodge. 

If we don't get the required numbers, the lodge will take bookings from other people, who may not be photographers. This will affect the exclusivity of our booking. 

If you are interested in going, and can attend on those dates, please RSVP urgently. We need to book the ten spots now, and pay the 50% deposit as soon as we can.

See below for information on the lodge, and costs.  

Please reply and 
RSVP now, as we have to make bookings to secure the accommodation!! 

Elephant Rock Lodge, at Nambiti Nature Reserve, is the "5 star" option, with private game drives, and exclusive accommodation. As there are only ten spaces available, we hope to 'book out' the venue. This will insure that all attending are photographers, and with the same experience in mind. No tourists or children getting fidgety on the game drives, ruining photo opportunities. This all comes at a price, and the rates are high. We have however secured a 20% discount, for a three day booking during the week, Sunday to Wednesday. You have the choice to stay either two or three days, with the third day being charged at half price.

  • Sallie Anthony has secured a 20% discount special group deal for HCC. 
  • There are 5 double/twin lodges, which accommodate 10 people.
  • The goal would be to ‘book out’ the lodge with HCC people, who all want to photograph animals, and will all be on the same photographic wavelength. 
  • Full Rate – R2195 per person, per day, less 20%  = R1756
  • Two nights – R 4390 , less 20% = R 3512
  • Third night is half off – R1097.50, less 20% = R 878
  • In total: Full Rate – R5487,50
  • BUT WITH OUR 20% DISCOUNT – R4390.00 per person     
  • This is the price for our group to take over the entire lodge.
  • Either two nights or if three, the 3rd night would be 50% discount (R878.00) So two nights would be R3512.00 per person and for three nights R4390. 
  • This would be for a Sunday check in Sunday (in time for lunch and the afternoon game drive ), for MondayTuesdayWednesday check out. 
  • The rate of R2195 less 20% is valid 18.01.2018 – 17.03.2018 and 30.04.2018 – 09.12.2018, during off season and MIDWEEK only. If you want to stay at any other time, the rate will be charged fully.
