Hi everyone.

Is there someone who had the privilege to swim in the new swimming pool in Olifants yet?

Does anyone have a pic or two of the pool? :mrgreen:

Needless to say we are very excited to make use of it on our next visit. :mrgreen:

Can anyone at least confirm that the pool at Olifants is now completed? My parents are due to visit next month and would love to be able to confirm this to them before they leave UK. Can anyone visiting KNP at present let us know how it is going?

Sandybabe and Lepardfan

We've just returned from a wonderful vacation and happened to have stayed at Olifants for 4 nights.
The swimmingpool is very far from being complete, mind you that is an overstatement, construction is moving at a snail pace. In fact, the hole where the pool is to be is still a hole, well partly that is. Fortunately this was a great excuse for us to travel to Letaba daily for our midday dip and that was in itself a lovely experience. The new reception is looking all swanky and I must say now that that part of the renovations are done it seems the pool will receive some attention

One needs to remember that the camps are located deep inside the bush and any construction can take a seriously long time :tongue:

Thank you RemiE for the feedback.

Unfortunately for now I won't be visiting Kruger soon :wall: :wall:

But when I do, I hope that the pool will be finished by then.

Dear Valued Guest

I trust this corrospondance finds you well.
During the construction of the Olifants camp swimming pool there has been delays as follows:

1. A lot of rocks were discovered and needed to be removed where the pool will be constructed.
2. Heavy rain falls in the park also hindered the completion of the pool.

According to Kruger National Park: Technical Services Department friday, 13 March 2015 the swimming pool will be completed.
The renovation of Bungalows is ongoing in Olifants camp.

We apologise for any inconvinience caused the delays.

We were at Olifants in November and the pool construction area looked as if it was a very long term project, unfortunately.

Pics taken two weeks ago of the pool. (through a hole in the shadecloth fence, so not the greatest pics!)

Thank you DB.

Would like to see what it looks now. I understand that it was supposed to be completed today.
