One of my favourite camps in Kruger with an excellent view of the olifants river. Loved the shop, had a variety of things especially for kids. I would definitely recommend it and look forward to going back soon.

We stayed in Chalet 14, huge patio with long comfortable sofa. Views are to die for. After two days of sitting in the car, game viewing, it was lovely to sit and to look on to the river, watching the animals coming to drink and more than 30 hippos coming out to graze and the younger ones running around and...

Lovely renovated/upgraded accommodation, Mugg and Bean restaurant with a lot of healthy food options, beautiful view over the Olifants River. Quiet surroundings to really enjoy the wildlife. My favourite camp in the Kruger National Park.

Overall the best value in Kruger bungalows were nice but there is no other competition. Most of the camps have recently converted their restaurants over to the Mugg & Beans franchise. They have no seperate adult bar as Mopani has. Most adults drank at their bungalows.

Was a little disappointed with the camp, the service was not as good as the other camps and with no swimming pool, there was no reprieve from the heat (they are building one though). The restaurant (Mugg & Bean) had very slow service. The chalets were in rows and rows down a decline, and we had been placed far from... More

We went just to get lunch there and enjoy the excelent views over the olifant river and it worths it for sure! The restaurant is the same you can find in every camp site of Kruger but the difference is the virws you have from there. You can be eating something while you are using your binoculars to find some... More

SANParks is doing really great things. We visited Olifants to do the MTB cycling and walking, and we really enjoyed it. The accommodation was really comfortable and the camp was always clean and well maintained. It has an adequately stocked shop where you can get most things you may want (the shop at Satara is really well stocked with so... More

We only come to Olifants for the perimeter bungalows. This spectacular view over the Olifants river is worth to spend in a rather small rondavel (compared to other places in Kruger). Since the restaurants have a new owner, eating there has much better than before.

As most of the San park accommodation, this place is well run. It has a Mugg and Bean restaurant which caters to all needs. The view on the river is very nice but too far down for any game viewing. Having been many times to the park before, we now took for the first time a rondavel which had no... More
