Why the name “The Square Elephant”?

Because the shipping container is the same gray colour as an elephant and, like the elephant, this container also blends seamlessly into its bush environment.

Delightfully secluded and remote in feeling up on the mountain, yet still conveniently close in reality to wineries, water sports, golf, grocery, shops, and of course, nature.

This is a pristine wilderness area. While there are no large animals in the area such as leopard, there are many smaller critters that call this place home. Please respect their space. You may see buck, blue crane, porcupines, owls, rare mountain tortoise, hare, mongoose, genet, baboons and other fynbos dwellers. Be aware of the possibility of scorpions and snakes.

The Square Elephant

Nature. Silence. Solitude. Peace. Panoramic views. Champagne air.
