What a lovely place. My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. I would definitely go back to this quiet and tranquil lodge. The staff that work there are friendly and always helpful. If I knew about this place beforehand I would have been there long before. Thanks!

First impressions last. The staff of Olifants River Lodge are friendly and efficient. Had a problem with the a/c in the assigned unit, they did not hesitate to move us to a new unit without a fuss, every request we had were dealt with in an instant. The lodge as a whole is picture perfect and I would recommend it to anyone, from camping to luxury accommodation. We will be returning definetaly.

Our family had a wonderful time. We stayed in the villas which were very clean, neat and definitely worth it. For a first time hiker, even I enjoyed the hiking trail. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I really loved the stay.
