Great VRBO in a great location

  • 4 of 5

House worked perfect for our (4 adults) trip into and out of Krueger National Park. All appliances worked and it is well stocked with basics. Would have been a 5 star if it had working Wifi. Highly recommend for anyone wanting to go to Krueger. Not many restaurants in the area

Great base for exploring Kruger Park

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented Wild Olive for four nights and used it as a base for exploring Kruger Park. The house is very large and quite comfortable, pictures are accurate. It is located within a lodge compound that includes a restaurant and pool. If you do not want to drive yourself in the park (we recommend driving) the lodge staff can help you arrange safaris and other excursions. We drove into the park three times and one day we saw the Big Five, others days we saw 14-16 different animals.

Daily housekeeping is included. Kitchen is well equipped and a full grocery store is about 2 minutes away. Lodge staff were quite helpful when we had some troubles with,our rental car. I would highly recommend this house to friends. It is well suited to a large group but price is reasonable for a couple like us. Beautiful back porch which overlooks a pond.

Luxe huis in prachtige tuin met vijver

  • 4 of 5

Een groot, compleet, luxe huis in een prachtige tuin. We hebben heerlijk gerelaxed op de grote veranda met uitzicht op een grote vijver. Prachtige vogels bezoeken de tuin in het waterbadje voor het huis. De keuken is voorzien van een vaatwasser wat een genot is wanneer je met z'n 8-ten bent! En als je wilt kun je zelfs de was doen of laten doen.

De woonkamer is sfeervol met allerlei afrikaanse decoratie. Voor de kids was de TV boven op de vide een uitkomst, ze konden lekker hun eigen programma's kijken terwijl wij beneden af en toe de olympische spelen volgden.

Het Kruger park ligt letterlijk om de hoek dus we zaten zo tussen de wilde dieren.

We hebben ook een aantal excursies vanuit de lodge gedaan, erg makkelijk en er is veel keus. De kinderen lagen dagelijks wel in 1 van de 2 zwembaden.

We thuis gebraaid (zoals ze hier BBQen noemen) maar hebben ook lekker gegeten in het restaurant van de lodge, erg sfeervol met lichtjes en mooie decoratie en vuurkorven. Vooraf een lekkere cocktail in de bar gedronken. We hadden nog een massage willen doen maar daar was helaas geen tijd meer voor. Je kunt hier best een week of langer doorbrengen want ook buiten de lodge is genoeg te zien. Wij hopen zeker nog een keer terug te komen in Wild Olive!

Holiday home / villa bush Kruger Estate 'Wild Olive' is located at the KRUGERPARK at Palaborwa, the city of two summers. This name has been given because the temperatures in winter are almost as enjoyable as the summer. The house is situated in the immediate vicinity of the entrance to the Kruger Park. The house is ideally suited to take on from there several tours, safaris, and ballooning. At about 2 kilometers from the house you will find the Hans Merensky Golf Course 18 holes where you can walk amongst the game or pay a visit to the Amarula factory where you get to hear everything about this famous African drink. Phalaborwa is accessible in several ways. From Johannesburg, it's a beautiful car journey of about five hours where you can see many different landscapes. You can also choose to travel by plane to Phalaborwa. Each day there are three return flights to and from Johannesburg. The location of the house makes it ideal for daytrips. The Panorama Route (three rondavels, God's windows, Burke's Luck Potholes), Pilgrims rest in a day to travel. Also a trip to Mozambique belongs to the possibilities, however, for this you need several days.
