Picture Lake Eland Game Reserve in Dixon, Webster, Kentucky 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.

Picture Lake Eland Game Reserve in Dixon, Webster, Kentucky One of the main highlights for guests visiting Lake Eland Game Reserve is to walk across our 80m Suspension Bridge. Not only is it exhilarating to walk across the Suspension Bridge, but it is quite an achievement for many of us who are fearful of heights. The views from the Suspension Bridge are breathtaking and you will be inspired by the magnificence and grandeur of the Oribi Gorge.

We have a saying in South Africa “Africa isn’t for sissies” and this adventurous walk across the bridge is definitely not for the faint-hearted. For those of you who are still considering whether or not to take the challenge and cross the bridge when you next visit Lake Eland, maybe this might help: each cable that supports the Suspension Bridge can hold 70 tons, so unless you’re carrying all your gym weights in your pockets, you should be just fine!

Lake Eland Game Reserve is a 35 minute drive inland from Port Shepstone.

From Durban (+/-123 Km) take the N2 south-bound towards Port Shepstone.

At the Oribi Plaza off-ramp follow the N2 inland (turning right over the bridge across the freeway) and travel towards Kokstad/Harding on the N2.

After 11km (at the top of a long climb) look out for a sign on the left indicating “ORIBI FLATS EAST”; “Southern Explorer T3” and well as “Lake Eland” and turn right.

This is the D219. Travel for 26km on this road, passing the NPC cement factory and Igwala Quarry, and other establishments such as Leopards Rock.

Do not turn off anywhere. The last 4km are on gravel/ dirt road – to the Lake Eland Game Reserve Entrance. FOLLOW the “Eland” on the side of the road.
