Very nice location and friendly staff. The perfect place for relaxing and watching animals like giraffe, zebra, gnu and ostrich right behind your accomodation. Although we have missed to book a breakfast in advance we've got a very good one served in the morning.

With a family of 5 we traveled in Limpopo. We pre booked several different lodges of which one was not that nice so we looked for an alternative and found Olievenhoutsrus close to Vaalwater. We were very pleased with this great, very last moment alternative....More

Thank Sandra and Delmar for your excellent hospitality and relaxing time in a wonderful location. And even better was the great game views per foot in the park. The cottages are well equipped and cosy. All and all tranquil!!!

We are situated in the heart of the Waterberg Biosphere only 10mins outside Vaalwater. Enjoy a break-away in the bushveld only 2hrs north of Pretoria! Our "Kruger Park style" Cottages and More Rondavels are the perfect accommodation for a small group of family or friends! Wake up and watch Zebra, Giraffe and Wildebeest grazing around the Lodge! We have 2x cosy Rondavels from R350pP and 2x Family Cottages (sleeps 4-6) from R250pP. All accommodation is in a beautiful garden area with views onto the bushveld. For social get-togethers there is a central Lapa with braai facilities, a fully equipped kitchen and DSTV. Cool off in the sparkling swimming pool and enjoy evenings gathered around a large fire in the boma.The farm is in a unique setting and offers great self-guided game and bird viewing walks as well as horse- and pony rides (please by prior arrangements only!). There are plenty of things to do and recreational facilities in the nearby area like Quad Trails, Hunting Safaris, Elephant Rides, Canopy Tour, Fishing at Mokolo Dam, Marakele National Park (Big 5), D'Nyala Game & Nature Reserve or visit one of the local little towns which offer a variety of shopping opportunities and restaurants. We gladly assist with bookings of outings!We hope to welcome you soon at our establishment!Best regards,Sandra NortjeOlievenhoutsrus Guest- and Game FarmVaalwater Less
