Guests that visit Olifants will be exposed to an unforgettable window of Africa. The camp is situated a top a hill which towers several hundred feet over the Olifants river. Views from the lookout platforms allow one to see the river below, just as a soaring eagle would survey it, as it hunts from the skies.

The great thing about this camp is its location on the top of the hill which makes it great for viewing. However this means that there is not much wildlife around this camp It were hot days when we went and as part of compulsory load shedding there was no electricity in the

Nice decent and quiet rest camp with good facilities, clean and spacious accommodations and a great view deck from the restaurant on the Olifants river. Our second time on this camp and still one of my favourites. Good hide outs nearby and bushy surrounding gives most chances

The best selling point and reason why you want to stay here, is the location. It's relatively quiet at this location, compared with other SAN parks lodges within the Krugerpark. Don't expect any luxury at all. It's very outdated, very small and in our case the airco didn't

You can book safaris if available. You can also book them online, we did this for a few night safaris and a Bush walk. Be aware that the camp is in the middle of Kruger, the don't have shuttle services available to bring you to the camp.

The infrastructure in this part of RSA is quite developed and focused on the tourist industry. Make an inquiry whilst your booking your accommodation and I trust you will be directed to the right means of transport.

As with all the main rest camps in Kruger, Olifants does have a shop that sells all the groceries you would find in a basic grocery store (bread, milk, dry goods, meat, veg, sweets, alcohol etc...) as well as curios and some ready made meals such as sandwiches. The restaurant is serviceable - the food won't win any prizes but on a good day is actually not too bad.
