Situated in the heart of the Waterberg Biosphere, 10 minutes from Vaalwater, nestles the self-catering cottages and rondavels that comprise Olievenhoutsrus.

Situated 3 hours from Johannesburg, Olievenhoutsrus is an ideal spot for a weekend bush break for nature lovers.

Accommodation is provided in 2 cosy rondavels which sleep 2 guests and 2 family cottages which sleep 4-6 guests.  The accommodation is set on a verdant, green garden shaded by tall indigenous trees. The units have views over the bushveld to grazing zebra, giraffe and wildebeest.

The rondavels are furnished with a double bed, en-suite bathroom, kitchenette with fridge and Microwave and lounge with TV. Both rondavels have patios with braai facilities. If required, a sleeper couch can be provided in the lounge area to accommodate small children.

The 2 and 3 bedroom family cottages comprise an open plan lounge with TV and fully equipped kitchen.

An unfenced campsite, set away from the main lodge has clean running water which can be heated via a donkey, but no electricity. The camp site is rented to one group of campers only at a time. Facilities for campers include a dishwashing area, an ablution block and a boma area with braai pit.

After a morning’s game viewing hike or horseback ride in the surrounding bushveld, guests can cool off in the refreshing pool and enjoy socialising around the braai in the central lapa which has a fully equipped kitchen and DSTV.
