    The bungalows there are great. Clean and nice. I cannot recommend to do the morning and river walks. However the accommodation was really good value for money for 60€ per night. Best stay in Kruger for us. We stayed in three more camps.

    Helpful and kind staff. They send intros and all the important details needed via email a day before arrival. The front desk staff was amazing! They helped setup all our morning and night walks and drives for the remainder of our trip.

    The rooms are so clean, like a small heaven. The private braai area is also nice. The restuarant has a beautiful view of the animals crossing the river. You wont even need to drive around and search for animals when you are in olifant. They...More

    Unparalleled for its view, this camp remains one of Kruger's most popular. The chalets are not well appointed and, because they have yet to install baboon-proof gates on their cupboards, we had to use our suitcase stand for our groceries. You also have to share...More

    We stayed here a few times before, we really like the location of the camp. The swimming pool came in handy as it was very hot. Game viewing was not that great, except for a great sighting of 9 juvenile hyaenas near Balule. Units were...More

    hi I have been trying to make a reservation for one of the guest houses for August next year. I phoned central reservations as they opened at 7.30 on the day accommodation becomes available however these units were already reserved. Do these units get reserved by travel agents? If so does anyone know the name of agents that I could contact to make a reservation with them? many thanks

    I booked my room in the Olifants starting from the official site of the Kruger Park. Try on sanparks
