Such a beautiful hidden away gem. Premises are well kept and cabins clean and well equipped. The chocolates were also a lovely little treat.
It was so convenient that the wood was readily available as well as a kayak to enjoy on the river.
Many thanks for the amazing stay! We look forward to visiting again!

We loved our stay at Olifantskraal.
The premises were very well maintained and everything was of a high standard. We will definitely be back.

The only negative comment was that we found the kitchen sink / washing up area rather small.
