There were robes, tea and coffee facilities, a fridge and even a complimentary carafe if sherry. The restaurant has a small menu with a daily special of one starter and...

She was aggressive, unpleasant and first told us we were lying and never had a booking, then found our reservation but told us we had cancelled it, and...

Great hospitality and very good food. The rooms are beautiful and the service is high. 'We travel a lot through South Africa and always end with a stay or a diner at Oliver's. If you are a golf player, you should go there because Oliver's is situated on a golf course

Lodge is located out of town in the countryside and on a golf course. Took us about 2 / 3 hours to drive from Sabi Sands in The Kruger. Once there you'll need a car for sure as there is some not to be missed scenery in the area. Rooms are huge, with very large beds. Very tastefully decorated. Nice...

As said in the title, my family and I only spent one night at Oliver's Restaurant & Lodge. I wish we would stayed longer. Actually, we were on our way between Nelspruit Airport and the Krugger Park. For some kinda mismatch of dates, we had to stay overnight between those two locations. And we had no regret. The location of...

Stayed for 3 nights after a busy time at Sabi Sands. Beautiful rooms with amazing personal care and attention from the staff. As a family of vegetarians we had beautiful and plentiful meals. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff including organising trips - we visited the Blyde River Canyon - great day out. The lodge is situated in...

Beautiful location, friendly staff, excellent food. A short drive from Kruger, and a perfect starting point for the panoramic tour. Excellent location for our first anniversary would highly recommend.
