Olifants main Camp - Kruger Park

Guests to Olifants will be exposed to an unforgettable window of Africa. The camp is situated on top of a hill towering several hundred feet over the river of the same name. Views from the lookout platforms allow a person to observe the river below just like what a soaring eagle must see.

The Olifants area plays host to most of the park’s classic larger game, elephant are common in the area. Baboon and Vervet Monkey both inhabit the camp as do fruit bats and thick-tailed bush babies at night. Lion and leopard are regularly seen on game drives. The Cape Clawless Otter has been seen from the Olifants lookout point on the gravel road to Letaba.

Two birds to look out for on the Olifants River are White-fronted and White-crowned Plover, both of which can be seen in the riverbed. The bridges on the main tarred road and at Balule are the places to look for these species. Search the riparian trees on the Olifants River near Balule for the Pel’s Fishing Owl. It is occasionally seen on night drives from the low level bridge here, while it has also been seen infrequently from the high level bridge on the main tar road.

Extra information

Climate:  Kruger is in a summer rainfall area and can result in heavy downpours. The summer months (October to April) are hot and often balmy.  Winters are warm and mild, although visitors going on night-drives will require warm clothing.
 
Handy Hints:  Plan your trip – do not try and cover too great a distance. Kruger is a massive tract of land and frequently visitors try to cover too much ground.  Slow travel and regular stopping produces much more action than covering a lot of ground.  Always be aware of distance to be covered before gate closing time.
Early mornings and evening time are usually the most productive game viewing periods.
 
What to bring:  Remember to bring a camera, binoculars, bird and wildlife reference books, a hat and sunscreen lotion. Also remember to take along medicines such as anti-histamine and lotion for insect stings and bites.
 
Please take note:  The speed limit is 50 km/h on tar and 40 km/h on gravel.  Visitors are not permitted to leave their vehicle other than at designated get-out points and rest camps.  Pets are not permitted in a national park.  Firearms must be declared at the entrance gate and sealed. The seal will be broken upon departure.  Open vehicles must obtain the necessary permit.  Feeding of the animals is strictly prohibited for your own as well as the animal’s safety and well-being. Monkeys and Baboons are problem animals in the camp. Leave no food unattended.
 
Wheelchair Access:  The camp has made some excellent efforts to accommodate visitors with impaired mobility. The reception area, the restaurant and the shop have all been fitted with ramps of suitable gradient.

Kruger National Park has implemented additional gate access control system at tis entrance gates in the south of the park. As from 1 September 2017, ALL visitors over years old will be required to produce their identity document, passport or alternative valid identification e.g. driver’s license card for scanning upon entering and exiting the park
