Guests that visit Olifants will be exposed to an unforgettable window of Africa. The camp is situated on a hilltop 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. Accommodation at Olifants Rest Camp caters to a variety of guest requirements and is well suited for those guests who are looking for a self-catering bushveld experience. Guests can choose to stay in the air-conditioned bungalow units, many of which have a river view. The bungalows vary in size. Two luxury guest houses, both with spectacular river views and several lookout decks, kitchens, multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, and selected DSTV channels, are also available. There are several different, exciting ways to experience the wildlife and wilderness around the Olifants Rest Camp. These include guided bush walks and game drives, mountain bike trails and a shaded lookout platform to spot animals at leisure from afar. Guests can also book a catered bush breakfast or braai for a different yet exhilarating culinary experience.
