Planted firmly in Obs, surrounded by vibey bars and restaurants, Green Elephant will
boost your green karma. Everything is recycled, from beer bottles to grey water, and
the Ele supports various charities for disadvantaged people in the local community. So
you can have the best time, and save the planet doing it.
Wake up, have a solar heated shower then mosey to the Sun Room for a continental
brekkie. Then pack your saddle bags with their scrumptious pad kos* and hitch a ride
on this king of the urban jungle. Try a budget tour to Cape Point or a museum crawl
starting at Groote Schuur Hospital where the world’s first successful heart transplant
was performed. Stop at the noon gun bang on time. Walk or cycle on Devil’s Peak but
be sure to dismount for a sunset cruise captained by Ele’s skippers. Party the night
away at Indabar Bar. Jump in a gas-heated jacuzzi or the pool with some new people,
blog about it at the internet café, then rustle up a midnight feast in the kitchen. If you
need your beauty sleep, crash in one of the private rooms or en suites next door.
