Oli's place is pretty special. Right on the river, and if you book a safari tent, you practically get the whole place to yourself---kitchen, outdoor and indoor lounge areas, and swimming pool. Enok, Oli's helper, is super friendly and knows a lot about the animals in the area…

Lovely place, peaceful and a beautiful view! Its better to have a 4x4 SUV, but with a 'normal' car is it also fine (max 10-20 kmph)! Also a great place to stay before going into the Kruger Park! We really loved the personal entrance from Oli and the other staff!
