This was a return visit to Olifants - the views are spectacular and the camp is relatively central with easy access to other camps, although on the Eastern border. When I visit the Kruger National Park, I don't expect 5 star luxury. The purpose of visiting the oark is after all to experience the beauty and harshness of the African...

“Rooms near the river are quiet and you can listen to the river flowing and its animals. The top rooms are busy because it's near shops.”
