About Olienhout Lodge

Olienhout Lodge is a beautifully decorated lodge with exceptional views of the Vaal River and the surrounding mountains. It is situated in the Vredefort Dome World Heritage Site, a mere two hours' drive from Gauteng. It consists of three bedrooms (sleeping up to eight people) and two bathrooms. The lodge also has two braai areas as well as a fireplace for the cold winter nights. The kitchen is fully-equipped for a weekend away and all bedding and towels are provided (including electric blankets during winter).

The house is situated 100 m from the river on a mountain slope, and occasionally you can hear the call of the fish eagle.

We had such a wonderful time at Olienhout Lodge with friends.The view from the stoep of the river is tranquil, the lodge comfortable, beautifully furnished and has everything you need.We were sad that we could not spend more time there and really experience the quiet.

What a wonderful place to go and charge your batteries. It was very clean, well stocked with everything you need and very quite. What more do you want. We will go back again. Thanks Cronnie.
