Die ideale wegbreek om weer liggaam en siel te herlaai.

Die stilte, rus en vrede wat ons ervaar het was fantasties en so welkom. Boonop was ons eenheid meters van die watergat en het die verskeidenheid van wildspesies ons bederf met hul besoek. Johan en Jennifer is baie aangenaam en vriendelik, en het ons werklik tuis laat voel. Hulle sal ons definitief weer sien!

Baie lekker gekuier! Voel so lekker uitgerus.

Ons kuiertjie by Olievenfontein was uit die boonste rakke. Jennifer en haar man is baie gesellige mense en doen baie moeite. Die kinders het so lekker gespeel en die game drive met koffie en koekies by die uitkykpunt, was baie lekker. Ons sal vir seker weer by hulle boek, ons voel so lekker uitgerus, dit was regtig 'n klein vakansie vir ons.

Die bed was baie gemaklik en goeie grootte. Beddegoed skoon en vars. Eengeid was ruim genoeg en goed toegerus. Gasvryheid van Johan en Gen het ons kuier baie aangenaam gemaak. Wildritte was vreeslik aangenaam, wel nie baie wild gesien nie, het die kameelperde en bokke vir ons kom kuier op die plein voor ons eenheid in die vroeë oggend en laat middag. Baie lekker gekuier. Dankie Gen en Johan.

Fantastiese plek met fantastiese gashere.

Van die oomblik wat ons arriveer het, het die rustigheid weerklink in ons siele. Ons was vriendelik gegroet deur ons gashere Johan en Jennifer en hulle was regdeur ons kuier baie behulpsaam en gasvry. Ons het lanklaas so welkom by enige plek gevoel. Die plek self is ook asemrowend. Baie oop spasie en net jy en die natuur. Ons wou nie huis toe gaan nie. Mens let selde op hoeveel jy jou siel verwaarloos, tot jy by so plek opdaag en jy 'n sug van verligting beleef. Die verblyf was baie gemaklik en ons het tuis gevoel, selfs meer as by die huis. Die wildritte is ook baie opwindend en Johan sal jou vermaak met vele interessante verhale oor die landskap en omgewing se geskiedenis, alles met 'n glimlag.

Ons het regtig 'n ongelooflike naweek gehad. Baie dankie aan ons gashere, Johan en Jen, met puik diens. Ons is met ope arms ontvang en het dadelik tuis gevoel. Ons het tuis gegaan in Waterbok, wat vir ons ideaal was. Baie gerieflik met 'n lekker stoep waarvan ons die wild kon dophou. Al wat ek kan sê is, alles was baie lekker. Ons is met swaar harte hier weg tot volgende keer.

Olievenfontein Private Game Reserve 's response

Good day, trusting you and your spouse are both well.

Thank you kindly for taking time to review us, it is much appreciated...

We appreciate your sentiments regarding our management and staff at the Reserve, I know that they are thrilled always, to provide top class service to all our guests...

We are saddened by your comments, in relation to our furnishings etc, provided in this cottage. Especially since you did not raise any issue to our management team, while at the Reserve. None-the-less, they have both been to the cottage since receiving your review, and they have tested and checked for any fault and weren't able to discover any material defects. We have also had several couples in the same cottage, since your stay, and no one has raised any issue with the furnishings therein.

Lastly, Johan, the Game Reserve Manager, who looks after the gardens and the pools, in the Lodge area, was also quite surprised by your comments, as he personally takes special care of these areas, to ensure every guest experiences a high level and standard in this regard.

None-the-less, we apologise for not living up to your standards, and hope that one day you will give us a chance to host you again, and trust that at that time our standards will meet with your approval and satisfaction...

Thank you once again.

Dit is 'n fantastiese plek om bietjie te rus.

Dit is 'n lekker rustige plek waar mens kan afskakel, die sein wat sleg is help natuurlik met dit. Daar is baie voëllewe en heelwat diere wat by die voerpunte naby die lodge kom kuier. Die uitsig oor die plaas is pragtig en daar is lekker staproetes.

Die natuurskoon was mooi en heerlik rustig.

Ons het die natuur geniet en die lodge is oor die algemeen nie sleg nie. Ons spesifieke kamer het wel instandhouding nodig gehad. Die toiletsitplek was gechip, die bad kort maintenance, die bed was deurgeslaap, die lampie was gebreek en die yskas maak glad nie meer mooi koud nie. Vir 'n 4 ster-selfsorgplek was daar ook nie 'n stoof nie alhoewel daar plek is vir een. Die plek is nie sleg nie en met n bietjie opgradering sal ek dit kan aanbeveel.

Beautiful location, tranquil surroundings, wonderful facilities and hosts.

Olievenfontein is the perfect getaway to immerse oneself in a restorative and tranquil stay away from the busyness of daily life. The resort is beautiful with well equipped and serviced chalets, a lovely pool and leisure area with spectacular views of the surrounding Waterberg, and a wonderful boma where a fire is lit on clear evenings and one can enjoy the clear night skies and sounds of nature. Johan and Jennifer are very friendly and welcoming hosts, and the bush drive with Johan to look at the wildlife and views is a lovely excursion to add to the relaxing experience.

Bosveld-natuurskoon op sy beste!

Die braaigeriewe by elke eenheid is meer as voldoende ingerig. Dit sou aangeneem wees as die boma aangesteek kon word soos vroeër jare, maar ook te verstane dat dit 'n uiterse hoë brandgevaar inhou met die winde en dus nie die keer gebeur het nie. Die beperkte hoeveelheid mense wat die lodge kan huisves, skep 'n uiters intieme atmosfeer. Die werknemers was baie vriendelik en het graag na ons versoeke omgesien. Die watergat, wat 'n geskatte 50m van ons stoep af is, was besoek deur verskeie wild. Ons het 10 verskillende spesies van ons stoep af besigtig oor die loop van ons verblyf, nl. rooibok, koedoe, waterbok, blouwildebees, eland, vlakvark, kameelperd, ape, bobbejane en zebra. Die voëllewe is volop en weerklink oor die kalmte van die lodge. Die staproetes was aangenaam en ons het ook weer heelwat wild gesien. Die wildrit was ook puik en ons gids se kennis van die bosveld uitstekend met baie ekstra staaltjies van die plaas wat hy met ons gedeel het. Ons sien julle definitief weer vorentoe!

Ideaal vir naweek ontsnap vir 'n paartjie sonder kinders, of 'n groep vriende.

Buiten vir 'n swembad en klein speelarea, is daar nie veel vir klein kinders of tieners om te doen op die terrein of in die omliggende omgewing nie. Vir die meer aktiewe familie is daar wandel- en fietsryroetes en die natuurskoon is asemrowend. Baie en goeie geleenthede om wild te sien, soos kameelperde, sebras, ape en natuurlik koedoes.

Rus vir die siel in amazing chalets.

Chalets is verskriklik mooi en skoon. Wildritte kan deur die lodge self gebook word, en daar is ook in die nabye omgewing addisionele aktiwiteite.

Wonderlike, rustige ontspannende atmosfeer. Fantastiese wegbreek van die stad

Die gasvrou het die kinders letterlik by die hek verwelkom en deurgaans was hulle vriendelik, behulpsaam en beskikbaar. Die perseel is in 'n goeie toestand maar akkommodeer die natuur om gerespekteer te word. Vir 'n enkelouer met twee kinders, was dit 'n goeie ruskans aangesien die kinders kon speel en rondhardloop. Kan dit definitief aanbeveel.

Net wat ons nodig gehad het. Die voëllewe is besonders - vat jou voëlboek saam!

Het sommer tuis gevoel na Jennifer en Johan se hartlike ontvangs. Is spyt dat ons die laaste gaste was wat die betrokke dag ingeklok het want toe is die wildritte vir die volgende dag reeds vol bespreek. Sal voorstel dat daar oorweging gegee word dat gaste wildritte vooraf kan bespreek en betaal en dit nie beperk tot wanneer gaste opdaag nie. Alternatiewelik gee gaste die geleentheid om in hulle eie voertuig (4x4 aleenlik) die wildrit voertuig te vergesel teen 'n koste.

Okay.

This is not a 4-star property at all. The chalet walls are dirty and under the toaster it seems they never cleaned it. We didn’t say anything, we didn’t want to spoil our holiday. To go on a game drive not even asked what to drink. Usually the other game lodges ask what the people drink.

Nice and quiet even though there is no air conditioner.

Definitely short of air conditioning especially for the hot summer months. The DSTV was a lifesaver with the semi-finals of the World Cup. The game is extremely tame and graze up to the rest camp. The hosts are extremely friendly and hospitable. I'll go again if I get the chance.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Lekker rustig en netjies al is daar nie lugversorger nie.

Kort beslis lugversorging veral vir die warm somermaande. Die DSTV was 'n lewensredder met die semi-finale van die wêreldbeker. Die wild is uiters mak en wei tot teen die ruskamp. Die gashere is uiters vriendelik en gasvry. Ek sal weer gaan as ek die kans kry.

We enjoyed our weekend at Olievenfontein immensely. The staff is terribly friendly and we felt right at home. They were very accommodating to our 5 month old baby and offered a dining chair and cot. The unit that is cleaned daily is a big plus. We can't wait to go back!

Ons het ons naweek by Olievenfontein vreeslik geniet. Die personeel is verskriklik vriendelik en ons het onmiddellik tuis gevoel. Hulle was baie tegemoetkomend teenoor ons 5 maande oue baba en het ‘n eetstoeltjie en cot aangebied. Die eenheid wat daagliks skoongemaak word is ‘n groot pluspunt. Ons kan nie wag om terug te gaan nie!

A wonderful few days in the bushveld with animals drinking water at the waterhole in front of our chalet, the game drive was up the mountain and a beautiful view of the Waterberg and Johan's knowledge of the animals, trees and surroundings was very educational. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Thank you Johan and Jennifer for a wonderful few days.

Rustig en stil in die bosveld.

'n Heerlike paar dae in die bosveld met diere wat by die watergat voor ons chalet kom water drink, die wildrit was teen die berg uit en 'n pragtige uitsig oor die Waterberge en Johan se kennis oor die diere, bome en omgewing was baie leersaam. Die personeel is baie vriendelik en en hulpvaardig. Baie dankie Johan en Jennifer vir 'n heerlike paar dae.

Olievenfontein is 'n pragtige en rustige wildreservaat. Die verblyf is pragtig en baie goed ingerig. Die lodge het 'n groot swembad en boma waar hulle vuur in die aand maak. Alles met 'n asemrowende uitsig van die berg/koppie. Voor die lodge is 'n water drink plek met baie verskillende wild wat kom drink. Jennifer en Johan is wonderlike gashere. Gaan doen gerus die wildrit tot op die berg en geniet 'n drankie/koffie en Johan se skreeusnaakse staaltjies. Hoogs aanbeveel. Baie dankie

Ontspannend, ongelooflike mooi omgewing en vriendelike personeel.

Die reservaat is nie groot en eenhede redelik naby mekaar wat dit perfek gemaak met vir ons. My 7 jarige dogter kon orals speel en ek kon, sonder om ons stoep te verlaat, haar deurentyd sien. Jennifer het meer as een keer seker gemaak als is reg aan ons kant en was altyd meer as bereid om te help as ons iets benodig. Die ontbyt was ongelooflik en sal ek dit enige tyd aan enige iemand aanbeveel. Ek sal Olievenfontein hoog aanbeveel vir enige gesin, eenhede is baie oulik ingerig, swembad en tafeltennis vir die hele gesin en my dogtertjie wou net elke and by die boma sit.

'n wegbreek wat die moeite werd was .Stil rustige omgewing

Veiligheid opknap. Swembad nie 100 persent skoon nie, geen WiFi soos gemeld nie, geen restaurant fasiliteite soos gemeld nie, voorkoms by hoof-ingang kan verbeter.

It was an adventure.

It was a tranquil weekend, which is what we needed. They deliver what they promise. Low point is two areas on their route needed attention for those using small cars.

It was one of the most beautiful wildlife reserves.

Received a very kind welcome. The self-catering house was very clean and tidy. We could just sit back, relax and enjoy nature. Nice big swimming pool with the most beautiful view of the mountains. Will definitely go back.

Dit was een van die mooiste wild reservate.

Baie vriendelik verwelkom. Die selfsorghuis was baie skoon en netjies. Ons kon net terug sit en ontspan en die natuurlewe geniet. Lekker groot swembad met die mooiste uitsig op die berge. Sal definitief terug gaan.

It was an unforgettable few days.

Excellent service and friendliness from the moment we arrived until our departure. Residential units of the best, neat, clean and spacious, with all the amenities you need to enjoy your stay. Was an experience to walk between the wildlife early and late afternoon. Even the game drive was lovely. Will recommend this place to anyone who admires nature and we will definitely stay there again.

Dit was 'n onvergeetlike paar dae.

Uitstekende diens en vriendelikheid vandat ons daar gearriveer het tot ons vertrek. Wooneenhede van die beste, netjies skoon en lekker ruim, met alle toebehore wat jy nodig het om jou verblyf te geniet. Was 'n belewenis om tussen die wild te kan loop vroeg- en laatmiddag. Selfs die wildrit was lekker. Sal hierdie plek vir enige iemand aanbeveel wat die natuur bewonder en ons sal beslis weer daar bly.

Disappointed.

We stayed in the "Giraffe Unit" as a family of 6 adults. The unit was not tidy, there were a lot of insects and it is clear that the unit was only slightly cleaned on the surface. The pool was full of algae and the water is only treated with chlorine. It can be a fantastic resort, if the units are cleaned properly and maintenance done well.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Teleurgesteld.

Ons het tuis gegaan in die "Giraffe Eenheid" as 'n gesin van 6 volwassenes. Die eenheid was onnet, die stoof was vetterig en vuil, deurtrek van insekte en dit is duidelik dat die eenheid net vlugtig gediens word. Die swembad was deurtrek van die alge en die water is slegs met chloor behandel. Dit kan 'n fantastiese oord wees, mits die eenhede behoorlik skoon gemaak word en instandhouding gedoen word.

Olievenfontein Private Game Reserve 's response

Beste Jay,

Eerstens wil ek vir julle groep se baie dankie dat julle hier by ons bespreek het.

Gun ons die geleentheid om terugvoer te verskaf op die kommentaar in jul resensie:

Julle wou nie toegelaat het dat die personeel hul werk doen om die eenheid daagliks skoon te maak nie. Die personeel het elke keer teruggekom na my en gesê die gaste sê dit is nie nodig om die eenheid te diens nie, hulle moet net die skottelgoed was. Selfs vir die Sondag-aand het julle nie die diens nodig gehad nie.

'n Persoon van jul groep het die Saterdag kom brood koop by my en ek het vir die persoon gevra of alles reg is. Hy het gesê julle kuier baie lekker, niks van onnetheid of vuilheid is genoem nie. Ek het dit eers gehoor toe julle kom om uit te teken op die Maandag.

Aangaande die insekte, moet julle in ag neem dat ons is in die bos is, en dat julle die voordeur oopgehou het in die aande terwyl die ligte in die eenheid aan is. Dit sal enige insek verwelkom om in te vlieg. Ons brand elke maand wierook in al die eenhede. Na jul vertrek op die Maandag, het ek self die eenheid inspekteur en nie een insek of spinnerak gewaar nie.

Die swembad is nie vol alge nie want ons behandel dit - nie net met chloor nie, maar ook met koper swawelsuursout.

Laastens, het ek julle ook nie aangespreek oor die mobiele lugreëling wat julle gebruik het in die eenheid gedurende jul verblyf nie. Dit moet eintlik by die bestuur aangemeld word vir toestemming om dit te gebruik. Ek het dit aanvaar met die rede om gaste se verblyf vir hulle aangenaam te maak.

Groete,
Olievenfontein Private Game Reserve

Beautiful place with fantastic service and friendly people.

We were impressed from the start. We were greeted and helped by friendly and helpful people. The houses and swimming pool area was neat and very clean. The game drive was a lot of fun and the bonfire at night was very pleasant. The gravel road was a little rough for someone without a 4x4 but it was part of the adventure.

Pragtige plek met fantastiese diens en vriendelike mense!

Van ons aankoms af was ons beïndruk! Ons is gegroet en gehelp deur vriendelike en behulpsame mense! Die huisies en swembadarea was netjies en silwerskoon. Die wildrit was baie pret en die bonfire in die aand, baie gesellig! Die grondpad was 'n bietjie rof vir iemand sonder 'n 4x4, maar dit was deel van die avontuur!

We are extremely happy with our short vacation. The service was excellent and the unit clean and pretty. We will definitely be back and recommend it to family and friends. The game drive and coffee was special.

Meer as wat ons voor gehoop het.

Ons is ongelooflik gelukkig met ons kort vakansie. Die kliëntediens is uitstekend en die eenhede is baie netjies en baie mooi. Ons sal definitief terugkom en dit vir familie en vriende aanbeveel. Die wildrit en koppie koffie was baie spesiaal.

Comfortable stay in isolation.

The units were very neat with fresh linen and well equipped. We would have liked more privacy from the other guests. Beautiful swimming pool and quiet area. The boma fire which they lighted each night was the highlight!

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Gemaklike verblyf in afsondering.

Huisies is baie netjies, kraakvars linne en goed toegerus. Ons sou meer privaatheid verkies het van die ander gaste. Mooi swembad en baie stil omgewing. Die boma-vuur wat hul elke aand maak was 'n hoogtepunt.

Just what the doctor ordered!

Very friendly service and an incredible experience to just be in the Waterberg to relax, away from the city. I will recommend Olievenfontein to anyone wanting to spend some time in the quiet of the bushveld.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Net wat die dokter voorgeskryf het!

Baie vriendelike diens en 'n ongelooflike ervaring om net tussen die kliprante in die Waterberge te ontspan, weg van die stad se gejaag. Ek sal Olievenfontein aanbeveel vir die wat net wil stil raak en die bosveld wil ervaar as kos vir die siel.

Kon perfek gewees het!

Als was pragtig en netjies maar ons het glad nie warm water gehad vir 3 dae nie en dit het nie gelyk of die bestuur daar baie haastig was om dit uit te sorteer nie. Een dag kan mens nog verstaan maar na drie dae het ons vroeg geloop en is terug huis toe want dis onaanvaarbaar! Die weer was koud so as mens dan nie 'n lekker warm bad of stort kan vat nie spoil die hele ondervinding en 'n mens betaal vir al die basiese geriewe! Sal beslis nie weer daar aandoen nie! Baie teleurstellend!

Dit was 'n wonderlike ervaring.

Ons sal beslis weer besoek aflê. Die ontvangs was aangenaam, die verblyf skoon en netjies. Diere was volop en personeel het kort kort ingeloer om seker te maak als verloop vlot. Die wildrit was so lekker ons het sommer twee keer gegaan. Oom Johan loop oor van kennis en het ons baie van die veld en diere geleer.

Stukkie paradys in die Waterberge.

Olievenfontein is perfek vir 'n naweek-wegbreek. Die koraalbome tussen die chalets en ander boomsoorte maak die besoek ekstra besonders. Elke chalet is so opgestel dat jy 'n direkte uitsig oor die veld en op die berge het, ook op die watergat waar jy daagliks 'n toeloop van diere kan besigtig. Dit vanaf jou eie stoep. Jennifer en Johan het ons baie mooi opgepas en was te alle tye hulpsaam, veral toe Jennifer my kon uithelp met hooikoorspille! My enigste kritiek is dat ons nie bewus was van die lang grondpad met sy baie klippe tot by die reservaat nie, en op plekke het my voertuig seergekry, aangesien hy baie laag is. Dis net 'n waarskuwing vir toekomstige besoekers. Ons hoop om gou weer te kan wegbreek na Olievenfontein! Volgende keer met 'n groter voertuig!
