Guest Reviews for Olifants Restcamp
Come and experience the wildlife and wilderness that makes Africa such a special place - the memories made on safari will stay with you forever!
The tranquillity of the Park impresses you immediately. I enjoyed the excursions from Olifants in particular as you don't have to worry about your driving and can sit back or walk, watch the game and get info from the guides on what you are looking at. Great!
very good accommodation with the best views ever
We spent three happy nights in Olifant, but we are not self catering people. So we relied on the catering of the neighbouring camp: Mopane was great, Olifant was poor, almost very poor, and Satara, a disaster. If you want to attract foreign visitors, catering should definitely be improved seriously. Mugg and Bean, probably, Wimpy, not sure ... But the bungalow was ok.
Enjoyed every minute
The room was dirty. We stayed 2 nights and it was not clean Restaurant and cafeteria was closed and nobody tells us before the arrival. I think we just paid for the view.... And only one washing machine was not out of order
This camp had a wonderful view but that was the only thing we enjoyed there. The restaurant was going to change proprietary so there was no choice at all, even lacking of product such as ketchup (that was still sold in the shop close by), the staff was totally demotivated and lacking seriousness. I found a spitting cobra threatening me less than 50 cm from the public path going to the view and nobody from the staff did something to prevent accident. The accommodation had no hot water, and absolutely nothing in the kitchen even glass.
Poor facility, no water/hot water etc.
I love the kitchen outside. Very nice. And we always get the first line...
We drove 13 hours from Umkumaas to get to Kruger and at some stage didn't think we would make it in time for camp gate closure. The manager at Olifants were unable to allow for a later arrival which I thought was possible. Maybe some flexibility could be considered in future.
Room was comfy but the bathroom smelled of urine. The camp needs a pool to cool down in. View was outstanding
