We got a warm welcome in a relaxing environment. The staff was very friendly and helpful ; we ave enjoyed the setup where we could see the animals from a short distance and just relax. The room was very good.

Dear Arthur, thank you for your kind review! Sincere apologies about the WIFI, as it should have worked in your room. It could have been that the signal was a bit weak at the time, which is unfortunately out of our control. We will certainly follow up and rectify if there is a problem. We hope to see you again...

We had a warm welcome. Sandra is a very nice person. The location is in the Waterberg mountains, a one hour drive to Marakele national park. The houses are big. Near the park are zebra's, giraffes and other animals.

Very neat and hosts Delmar and Susan, very friendly and helpful. We had a most enjoyable stay. Will recommend it any day. The game viewing was fantastic, can recommend the chalet closest to the fence.

We only stayed one night but we wished we'd booked for longer. Sandra the co-owner was friendly and eager to help and make our stay as enjoyable as possible. This is a very well maintained, relaxing place to chill, enjoy a Braii and watch the wildlife. Would definitely plan to go back Nicky and David Coope

We found our stay at Olievenhoutsrus to be a memorable event. The atmosphere was relaxed and homely. The highlight of our stay was watching the sunset while the Giraffe, Zebra and Warthog ate their food alongside the parameter of the fence.

It is a place that is just breathtaking in its rastic beauty, with all the game and various bird life. I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who wants to get away from the noise, fast life of Gauteng. Thomas

The property is well looked after and the unit i stayed in is well furnished and very comfortable. Great "Lapa" area to have a braai around the pool. Not too far from Vaalwater Town but I would suggest taking you own supplies with.
