Guests that visit Olifants Rest Camp in the Kruger Park, will be exposed to an unforgettable window of Africa. The camp is situated atop 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. There are so many creatures to see and sightings of rare species can be the highlight of your trip! Keep up to date with the movements of the wildlife in the Kruger National Park by consulting the sightings map at reception, it is updated daily!
Olifants Camp is definitely the most beautiful camp in the Kruger National Park, with a view overlooking the Olifants River. Olifants has also just been awarded the camp of the year for the second consecutive year! Staying at Olifants will definitely give you the best of the Park accommodation. The 80 seater restaurant is situated to the right of the view point and our dedicated chefs prepare traditional South African cuisine in black cast iron pots from the buffet. There is always plenty to choose from, but remember to leave space for our freshly baked desserts and fresh fruits and salads.
