About Olifants River Lodge

Through the ages, the Olifants River in Mpumalanga has cut deeply into the ground, leaving a deep valley filled with a variety of indigenous fauna and flora, including the magical Lanatus Cycad. It is in this breathtaking valley that you will find Olifants River Lodge.

Situated between eMalahleni (Witbank) and Middelburg, we are within a 200 km radius of Gauteng, the OR Tambo Airport, Nelspruit and the Kruger National Park Ė ideal for a weekend breakaway. Come and put your feet up in our beautiful Middleveld environment, with a wide variety of Acasia, Combretum, Cussonia, Cycads, Celtis and many more indigenous trees surrounding you.

You can see dassies, baboons, vervet monkeys, kudus, rhebucks, iguanas, porcupines and mongooses. And, if youíre lucky, very lucky, you might even see a leopard. If you need more than just nature to relax, we offer a variety of activities for the whole family. Indoor heated pools, cold water pools, hiking, fishing and lots more.

At Olifants River Lodge you can choose between thatched rondavels, self-catering cabanas and villas.

The rondavels are ideal for couples. There are no kitchen facilities, and you can choose from different packages available. Room only or dinner, bed and breakfast packages.

SELF CATERING ACCOMMODATION:

Facilities

The Olifants River Lodge boasts a variety of activities for the whole family to partake in. Playgrounds provide children with fun and safe environment in which to play. There are pedal boats, canoes and mountain bikes for hire (you are more than welcome to bring your own). If you are a keen fisherman, then be sure to bring your fishing rods and bait to attempt catching the large and powerful fish that swim about in the waters of the Olifants River.

Among these activities, we have a volleyball court that provide ideal team building opportunities for corporate groups or private groups. Two hiking trails along the cycads, pool table, table tennis, darts and a lot of other activities.

After a long day of relaxing in the sun, be sure to cool off in our refreshingly sparking pools (indoor heated or cold water). There are 2 baby pools, two large swimming pools and a beach pool available.
