A number of private wildlife reserves are located in the Greater Kruger Area in South Africa on the west side of the world-famous Kruger National Park. As a result of the merger of these private reserves, one large reserve is created. One of the last remaining wildlife strongholds in the world, contributing significantly to wildlife conservation efforts.
A total of almost 5.5 million acres of unfenced land covers the entire area, which is home to a diverse range of animals roaming freely across wild savannah. There are countless opportunities for wildlife encounters in the Greater Kruger Area, which is a major conservation hotspot and offers elephants, lions, rhinos, and wild dogs. There are a number of endangered or vulnerable species among these species.
In the heart of the African wilderness, you will be staying at Olifants River Camp. It is a traditional bush lodge located in a big 5 reserve equipped with all the amenities and furnishings you require for a comfortable and authentic stay in Africa. The management is dedicated to environmental conservation and it is reflected in the way the lodge is operated. Among the many aspects of life at Olifants River Camp is recycling, sustainable use of resources, environmental education, and using locally grown produce and ingredients that are ethically sourced.
A total of seven large dormitories overlook the Olifants River are available in the accommodation. There is air conditioning in every room as well as a bathroom. We have a swimming pool and an outdoor fire pit where we cook braais (BBQs) as part of a fantastic shared social environment.
Through the study of food and food customs, we are able to gain a better understanding of a people and a culture. As part of our delicious and nutritious menus, our local chefs prepare traditional South African dishes such as bobotie, potjie, a Cape Malay-style curry, or a South African braai cooked over an open fire.
One of our most beloved traditions is the braai (an African style barbecue). Even vegetarians and vegans can enjoy this proudly South African tradition, even though meat is the preferred braai food. At Olifants River Camp, a variety of dietary preferences are catered for seven days a week.
WiFi is available at the lodge, allowing you to use WhatsApp, Zoom, etc., to make contact with home. In addition, it is easy to purchase a Sim card and add credit to your phone so that you will be able to stay connected while using your own phone.
Greater Kruger has two distinct seasons, despite South Africa’s four seasons. Generally, Kruger’s climate is classified as subtropical with hot temperatures throughout the year. It is generally believed that the dry winter season is the best time to view wildlife. Because there are limited water sources, animals tend to congregate around them, and the vegetation is not so dense, making it easier to observe them. However, during the rainy summer season, the scenery is more lush and beautiful, as well as the number of baby animals is high.
