Getaway Summary
PRICE (unit):
from R 1,450
Olievenfontein Private Game Reserve is a stunning self-catering reserve which lies 1500 m above sea level in the breathtaking, malaria-free Waterberg Mountains. The reserve is set in the heart of the Waterberg Biosphere which is protected by UNESCO. It offers unprecedented and spectacular views.<br /><br />A truly unique experience awaits both the keen outdoor enthusiast and the well-primed city slicker, allowing your senses to be remolded in the absence of the hustle and bustle of daily life. Olievenfontein offers you absolute peace and tranquility, allowing you an opportunity to relax and rejuvenate while enjoying the great beauty and splendor that Africa has to offer. Guests can sit back and enjoy a good book while listening to the sounds of almost 350 bird species, or watch the various game species on the reserve.<br /><br />The untamed wilderness and the magnificent wildlife offerings of South Africa will leave you with a lasting impression. A safari at a reserve of this nature makes for an unforgettable family holiday, which is why we offer guests a pleasurable stay with their children. We offer a host of activities which will keep children occupied and entertained while the rains fall, or even just for them to have their own space while staying with us. <br /><br />We offer transfers to and from the reserve. This option will allow you and your family to take in the many sites that the Waterberg has on offer, including the renowned Waterberg Meander. We will collect you and your family or colleagues from your preferred location, and transfer you in the comfort of either our VW Caravelle or our Land Rover Defender. Alternatively we can arrange a private chartered flight, either by helicopter or by light aircraft.

"The Lodge is beautiful and peaceful but the manager is very rude and would not recommend that place to any of my family members or friends due to the attitude of that caretaker.we practically booked all the chalets there with my family coming from different provinces,but we were treated like its a favour to be there. .."

"My absolute best - The first time Johan opened the OPGR gate for me i immediately felt at home...Jen's welcoming smile put the cherry on top - home away from home. The friendly and helpful staff (Jonas,George,Elias,Masego,Dikeledi) made it worthwhile. The team went the extra mile to ensure all my needs and expectations were exceeded.Rooms and garden were clean and well kept. My privacy was respected.Tranquil, calm, re-assuring and laid back environment. The game drive and arranged horse-back safari was out of this world.The place should be rated 5*Thanks guys that our paths crossed...I WILL BE BACK!!!!!Kind regardsSerame"

"Ons kan s, EUREKA ! Ons het gevind! U hoef nie verder te soek nie! Alhoewel ons gereeld reis, het ons nou eers op 64 jarige leeftyd hierdie juweel gevind. Olievenfontein, Johan en Jennifer asook hulle personeel het alle verwagtings oortref - ons sien julle binnekort! Die keer was dit die Botha familie en binnekort vat ons die Kemp/de Beer familie om dit saam met ons te geniet. Ons kan nie genoeg dankie s nie. Olievenfontein, Johan en Jennifer is uniek!"
