Olifants Rest Camp is without doubt one of the most scenic in the Kruger Park, with sweeping views from both the lookout point and a number of river facing bungalows. The camp rests high above the mighty Olifants river, offering panoramic views of the lush Bushveld below, and many an hour can be spent behind the binoculars simply absorbing the panoramic views.

While the surrounding region is now renowned for large and diverse wildlife sightings, there's a good chance you'll get to see superb sightings of elephants, as well as a selection of other game, including a variety water-based animals such as hippos and crocodiles.
