It is in the luscious setting of the Olifants River valley that you will discover the beauty and serenity of the Olifants River Lodge.

Situated between Middelburg and Witbank on the banks of the Great Olifants River, one and a half hours' drive from Pretoria and less than two hours' drive from Nelspruit.

Olifants River Lodge the beautiful valley of the Great Olifants River Gorge. A stretch of secondary road over a koppie, descending into the valley below, giving you a glimpse of the breathtaking location of the Lodge. Set in the heart of Mpumalanga - South Africa's cultural homeland - the Olifants River Lodge illustrates our rich heritage in terms of our beautiful landscapes.

The Olifants River lodge boasts a variety of activities for the whole family to partake in. Playgrounds provide children with a fun and safe environment in which to play. We recommend that you ride in the pedal-powered boats on the mighty Olifants River itself, or go for a lazy paddle on one of our many canoes.

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 groups corporate or private groups. After a long day of relaxing in the sun, be sure to cool off in our refreshingly sparkling pool, or relax in our indoor heated pool.

The fully licensed "Bush Bar" is the ideal place for evening drinks or late afternoon sundowners, and is the perfect venue for watching your favorite game on our large data screen. The bar opens up onto a patio, kept cool in the shade of large trees, whilst you look onto a panoramic view of the Olifants River valley.

The Lodge offers a fully licensed restaurant for family meals, or the romantic dinner for two.
