Olifantsnek, Bojanala Region

Olifantsnek (which is an Afrikaans term that means “elephant’s neck”) is a small area nestled between Maanhaarrand and Rustenburg in the North West Province of South Africa. This places it near the exquisite Magaliesberg Mountain Range, which remains one of the country’s most spectacular natural attractions.

Visitors to Olifantsnek are urged to explore the surrounding mountains on foot, discovering the fauna and flora that graces its many trails. This allows you to breathe in the fresh air, feel the sunshine and be part of the natural splendour of Africa at a comfortable pace. Local wildlife includes many different antelope species, as well as birds and a small number of predators.

Summers in Olifantsnek are hot and rainy, while winters can become very cold, but remain drier. These conditions have proved to be ideal for the citrus and cotton farms all around, which make for stunning landscapes.
