Surrounded by the lush forests of the Mpumalanga province, the lodge is situated on the secure White River Country Estate and overlooks the first green of the 18-hole championship White River Golf Course. The area is well known, not only for its superb temperate sub-tropical climate, summer as well as winter, but also for its many scenic and adventurous attractions. The lodge is within close proximity of the world-renowned Kruger National Park as well as the Blyde River Canyon with panoramic drives along the escarpment and lies in a Malaria-free area.

We had a wonderful experience at the beauty and wellness section of Oliver's. All our treatments were beautifully done. The therapists were kind and friendly and provided us with the ultimate relaxation experience. We had our pedicures done viewing the beautiful golf course.

Please tell, who are the owners and is there really an "Oliver"???
Hi, Tanja & Oliver Ruf started Oliver's in December 2001. However, Oliver left the business in 2011 due to personal reasons and Tanja took over the business and now runs it on her own.

Dear Jackie, We thank you for your enquiry and gladly confirm that we do have safes in our rooms, which work with a simple 4 digit code of your choice. We are also a mere 20km from the airport, so it should take you about 20-25 minutes to get to the Lodge. Have a great rest of your day and we look forward to welcoming you here with us. Kind Regards Tanja Ruf
