4.5 out of 5 stars
We enjoyed our stay at Olievenhoutsrus. Much to see on the farm itself and the region is overwhelming. Two nights were too short.
Great hosts, clean and comfortable facilities.
Sandra and her husband are excellent hosts. The farm is beautiful and very well kept, with eye for detail. Highly recommendable.
Clean, tastefully decorated, affordable self-catering cottages. Beautiful garden. Well cared for dogs and horses, happy giraffe, ostriches, antelope, squirrels, bushbabies and birds on farm. Welcoming and hospitable family. Harmony all around. We had a wonderful weekend at Olievenhoutsrus.
Sandra and Delmar are fantastic hosts. Will use them again
