Olifants Restcamp - Kruger Park is situated on rocky cliffs overlooking the Olifants River and surroundings, affording probably the most relaxed view from terraces and windows than from any other camp in the Kruger.

Wildlife is prolific in the dense riverine vegetation below, and sunset and dawn offers spectacular scenic beauty at Olifants Restcamp - Kruger Park.

There is also a lookout point next to the camp that offers stunning views. Olifants Restcamp - Kruger Park is a modern, well-designed camp. It is about 82 km from the Phalaborwa Gate.

The interesting formations of the Lebombo mountains and the variation in the vegetation give the camp its exceptional character. Fever trees, wild fig and tree euphorbias may be sighted along the river drive.

This scenic drive follows the Olifants and the Letaba Rivers and game such as elephant, zebra, impala, warthog and kudu are common sights en route, with a variety of other species in the surrounds.

At the Riverview resting point the breathtaking immensity of river and emerald veld unfolds to the east and west.

Despite me reaching out to SA Places at the very last minute for a reservation, SA Places did everything to accommodate me. And all these things happened was because of Mariechen Brand. She not only replied all my queries promptly but helped me go through the process without any hitch. I did last minute reservation, but SA Places was excellent in responding and always tried to accommodate and did their best. The rooms at Olifants Restcamp in Kruger Park were very clean and the food in the restaurant was very good.

We truly enjoyed our stay at Olifants Restcamp. The air conditioning in the rooms are definitely a plus, it was hot! Beautiful scenery and just around the corner from Crocodile Bridge Gate.

Good place, good meat and wine at the restaurant. Clean room good beds and pleasant swimming pool. Unfortunately we did not see a lot of animals from the camp but plenty by driving through the park even with our car.

Friendly staff! grateful view from our hut to the river. And we loved the park and the lots of animals. Also a very kind guide on drive on the 19th. Unfortunately closed restaurant and the small bar on the viewpoint had not really good food. Sorry, but the omelette with filling of ketchup is a no go. See you again for sure.
