About Olivers Restaurant and Lodge

Nestled among the lush forests and rolling grasslands of the Mpumalanga Lowveld, Oliver's is nestled on a hillside of the picturesque and easily accessible White River Country Estate. A mere 20 minute’s drive from Kruger Mpumalanga airport, 45 minutes from Gods Window, 35 minutes from the Kruger National Park and 5 minutes from the town of White River Oliver's is ideally located for the discerning traveller within the Mpumalanga Panorama. The lodge overlooks the first green of the 18-hole championship White River Golf Course with the forests creating a picturesque backdrop. The area is well known not only for its superb temperate sub-tropical climate in summer as well as winter, but also for its many scenic and adventurous attractions.The personal attention to detail is depicted in everything from the stylish and unique architecture and decor of the lodge to the consummate personal service and warm friendly atmosphere.An oasis of award-winning gourmet cuisine, Oliver's has a distinct continental and Mediterranean influence on the a-la-carte menu served with only the finest South African wines from the well-stocked wine cellar. Fun dining with fondue and raclette may be romantically enjoyed in the privacy and ambience of the wine cellar.The atmosphere of quiet, laid-back country elegance immediately entices one into unwinding. Enjoy the tropical landscape with spectacular views, or relax on the veranda’s through warm Lowveld days, doze in front of a blazing log fire in the lounge or laze away the day at the pool. The lodge has 14 rooms, which are all individually furnished and decorated with a personal and elegant touch. They are en-suite and all have balconies with spectacular views over the surrounding estate. The in-house Wellness and Beauty Clinic has is operated by professional health and skincare therapists offering a variety of relaxing and stimulating massages, mani- and pedicures as well as soothing face and body treatments.Oliver's guests may also enjoy all the facilities of the White River Country Club, which include golf, tennis and squash.

                                      Abfab ~ short for absolutely fabulous!!! The best compliment I can think of is to say that Oliver's did not disappoint and exceeded expecations. One can taste the passion in the glorious food cooked by Oliver. The staff are without exception all so pleasant & efficient. Tanja is a wonderful hostess. The word "professional" comes to mind when describing the management team & staff ~ they work together like a well-oiled clock. It's hard to go home because one comes to feel so much at home during a stay at Oliver's. There is a lovely relaxed ambience, the decor is stunning and all the perso...

                                      The experience at the Lodge was truly fantastic. The service, food and the rooms were the best I have ever experienced. The friendliness of the staff and the resulting service made us feel that no request is too difficult or insignificant.

                                      It was really fantastic and we all thoroughly enjoyed everything about Olivers, the food, accommodation, staff and whole atmosphere. We will definitely be returning.
