Hi RemiE

Stayed in number 9 during July, very private, if you sit on your stoep you cannot see another bungalow!!!! Still got the old look and feel, had only one "small" problem with toilet not flushing as it should, but was sorted out quick quick.
I think any bungalow with view at Olifants are nice!Enjoy!!
July 2016 booked !!!

Have a look at the camp map here and here are pictures of no.32 and a bit of 33, which should give you an idea.

Have a great trip tent dweller :thumbs_up:

TD, we stayed in 32 in Feb, and I do not recall having much of a view. But it was a lovely, newly renovated cottage, and we enjoyed or stay there a great deal. The nightjars were so entertaining as they seemed to fly just in front of the cottage and settle in the trees opposite.

It now has a full kitchen on the verandah 8)

We stayed in 36 once, it had a not too bad view, if I can remember correctly the FQU14V was basically in front of us, but we still had some kind of view of the Olifantss river.

Maybe when it's close to your stay in December, you could maybe try and ask if they can allocate 36 to you.
Balule 29-30 June. :mrgreen:
Lower Sabie 1-2 July. :mrgreen:

Glory to God.

One day closer to my next visit

Tentdweller if you mean the ones that face East - BD3U then go for 111 or 110 there are no trees in front that block the view - I posted photos on the ACCOMMODATION PHOTOS thread - you can lie on the bed and watch the river and animals - heaven

Hello,
Do any of you have opinions on which Olifants guesthouse is better, Lebombo or Nshawu? Pros and cons of each?
Thanks so very much!

I haven't stayed at Lebombo but have had a couple of stays at Nshawu and IMO that is the one to go for! 8)

Have a read through Guest Houses in Kruger for some info and pics!

For those who have asked, attached is a photo of the new pool at Olifants from our recent trip. It's really nice and was getting some good use! Our kids loved it! :lol:

In response to Alf: maybe the photo is a bit misleading - the pool is not that small, albeit it is not Olympic size... :o

Dear tent dweller

I trust you are well.
I have consulted with our Nxanatseni Regional Tourism Manager as follows :

The swimming pool is only for overnight guests.
We have since implemented a system whereby on check-in the guest will receive a token which is to be presented at the swimming pool gate and will then be granted access.
Part of our master plan is to move the Olifants day visitor site out of the camp.
we can’t give you a timeframe for this yet.
