I had the best stay at Oluchi. The place is beautiful and the owner is very friendly as well as the staff. Would definitely come back some other time. Beautiful place with Tranquility. I recommend it for a peaceful travel
Amazing lodge, with spectacular views. Friendly family owned lodge. Beautiful rooms. Kids play area for the kiddies. Sunsets are beautiful on the deck overlooking the mountains. Definitely value for money.
The place is very beautiful, friendly stuff,great breakfast but I've noticed that they do not change the towels instead they hang dry those that you've used already instead of changing them every morning and give you fresh one.
Oluchi is a small, secluded lodge that is perfect for people who enjoy nature and being away from the crowds. The lodge and grounds were lovely and the service superb. Overall we loved it so much we extended our stay and we’re already planning to return soon. Lodge Description— There is a large central lodge with a bar and dining area, beautifully decorated with a high thatched roof. Outside, there is a covered deck with tables and chairs and an excellent view over the valley. There is also a hammock and swing chair. There is a Weber gas braai bbq for guests to cook their own food. Next to the outside dining area is an infinity pool with deck-chair loungers. There is good wifi in the common areas but not the rooms. The lodge has just 8 rooms, and in our experience even at full capacity the pool and deck area are very quiet, as guests seem to spend time in their rooms or away from the lodge (at least during our stay). Tip: the executive and ‘honeymoon/family’ suites are the best rooms, and feature a private deck/balcony with a spectacular view. The other rooms may have a private patio area but the views are more limited. Hosts and Service— Pieter, Lynne and Xander are a family that own and run the lodge. They all truly went above and beyond to cater for all our needs. They are wonderful, thoughtful hosts. The food was superb and has a home-cooked feel. Breakfast is included, dinner is offered at a bargain extra cost, and lunch is not offered. I think my only negative for the whole stay was that the bar was not as well-stocked as it could be (e.g. sometimes no lemonade or Coke Light) - but the Oluchi team made us delicious gin cocktails and gave excellent wine recommendations, so we were never thirsty. What to do at Oluchi— There are two lovely walks through the Oluchi grounds, and you are guaranteed to see wonderful birds, butterflies and plants. One takes approximately 5-10 minutes and takes you to a rocky hilltop with a spectacular view. The other walk takes you down into the valley in front of Oluchi lodge, and takes about an hour round-trip. You are more likely to see game on this walk, and we saw Kudu, Impala and wart-hog. The lodge has two very friendly dogs and do not be surprised if they cheerfully accompany you on your walk! Those enjoying birding can also contact Johann  who is a bird guide at Kaapsehoop around 40 mins drive from Oluchi. He took us to several great birding hotspots which we could not otherwise have accessed. He is knowledgeable and kind and charged a very low fee for 6 hours guiding.…
We loved our stay at Oluchi Lodge. The envirement was fantastic. Great view from the terrace and comfortable seats. The appartment was clean and spacious. We loved breakfast and also enjoyed a nice, well preparared diner. The lodge is furnished with taste and a great sense of detail. We really loved our stay and will certainly come back.
