Olievenhoutsrus Guest- and Game Farm is popular amongst overland- and business travellers as well as families with children! Fantastic game sightings and photo opportunities from within the Lodge are making Olievenhoutsrus so special! Relax around the sparkling swimming pool or enjoy sitting under the thatched lapa.

We are situated in the heart of the Waterberg Biosphere a 10 minute drive from Vaalwater. Enjoy a break-away in the bushveld only 2hrs north of Pretoria. Our 4 lovingly decorated Cottages and Rondavels are the perfect accommodation for a small group of family or friends. Wake up watching Zebra, Giraffe and Wildebeest grazing around the Lodge!

The farm is in a stunning setting and offers great self-guided game and bird viewing walks as well as horse- and pony rides (by prior arrangement please!). There are plenty of things to do and recreational facilities in the nearby area like Zip-lining, Hunting Safaris, Elephant Rides, Quad Trails, Fishing at Mokolo Dam, Marakele National Park (Big 5), D'Nyala Game & Nature Reserve or visit one of the local little towns which offer a variety of shopping opportunities and restaurants.

Olievenhoutsrus is also conveniently situated en-route to Botswana, which makes it the perfect stop-over for the overland camper. For these adventurers we have a Bushveld Camp-site with running water (heated via donkey). This site is tucked away in the bushveld separate from the Main Lodge. A fantastic place to view the many game species! Ablutions include: flushing toilet/shower and two basins as well as an outdoor dishwashing facility. There is also a boma area with braai pit.

We have 2x cosy Rondavels (each sleeps 2) which are furnished with a double bed, en suite bathroom, an open-plan lounge with TV, fan and kitchenette (fridge/microwave/coffee tray) as well as a patio with braai. If necessary a sleeper couch can be provided in the lounge to accommodate small children.

There is 1x Family Cottage with 3 bedrooms (main bedroom with double bed and two rooms each with two single beds), a split-bathroom, separate toilet, an open-plan lounge with TV and kitchen area with fridge/microwave/coffee&tea tray/oven&stove combo. This unit sleeps 6.

The second Family Cottage has 2 bedrooms (main bedroom with double bed, 2nd bedroom with 2x single or bunkbed), bathroom, an open-plan lounge with TV/kitchen/dinning area (fridge/microwave/coffee&tea tray/oven&stove combo). This unit has a private garden area with patio and braai.
