I wanted to take my kids to a place which has animals and an amazing place for them to play and relax. I found Olievenhoutsrus through Booking.com and then spoke to Sandra (owner) she gave us very good price for a three room suite - great deal. We were truly amazed to see the place, it had place for kids... More

The campsite is very good and very big, and the service of Sandra has been great! We enjoyed our stay very much, we even had dinner at the campsite, Sandra took very well care of us! :) She even had our laundry washed and dried in very short time.

I took my girlfriend to this guest farm for a weekend away from the city, and just a short trip from Johannesburg it really is perfect! January was a really hectic time at work, and I needed to get out and relax again, and I must tell you, this is the PERFECT place to do so. The service from Sandra... More

We had a very nice stay at Olievenhoutsrus. We had a nice rondavel with everything we needed. Animals at the fence and bushbaby's on the roof. It was great! For travelers to Botswana or Johannesburg a very good place to stay.

We had a wonderful stay at Olievenhoutsrus! The gardens, pool and walks on the farm are great. We had a braai with homemade Kudu and Wratzwijn worst. The shops in Vaalwater are perfect for doing your shopping. Our kids loved the dogs en the sun! We also had a family braai with Sandra and Delmar and kids on the 31... More

We had such a restful Christmas, and our small children (18 months and 4.5 years) loved it! We usually have to work hard and find things to keep the kids occupied but at Olievenhoutsrus this was not a problem. They fed apples to the horses, played on the lawns, swam in the warm pool, watched the wild animals and took... More

My wife and I have just spent 2 perfect days at Olievenhoutsrus, and our only regret is that we didn't spend 2 perfect weeks there. We booked from our home in England, based on other reviews, and we hit the jackpot! This place is far from the hustle and bustle of normal life, and allows you to unwind in perfect... More

Spent an absolutely amazing weekend with friends at Olievenhoutsrus Guest & Game Farm! Sandra and her family are most welcoming to their game farm.

My friends and I spent a perfectly relaxing weekend at this farm in Vaalwater and could not have been happier. The place is secluded and peaceful, with beautiful nature all around. Sandra and her family are very friendly and accommodating, and went out of their way to make our short weekend feel much longer: Sandra took us horseback riding in... More
