Guests that visit Olifants will be exposed to an unforgettable window of Africa. The camp is situated a top a hill which towers several hundred feet over the Olifants river. Views from the lookout platforms allow one to see the river below, just as a soaring eagle would survey it, as it hunts from the skies.

Because Olifants Camp is situated in a transitional zone, 2 distinct types of vegetation can be found, offering a wide range of game. In the north, the low lying Mopane trees provide cover for zebra, impala and kudu. To the south, rolling plains offer most game, and a shaded lookout platform at Olifants Camp offers the opportunity to see hippopotamus and crocodile in the Olifants River as well as the occasional Lion kill.
