About Olivers Restaurant & Lodge

Oliver's Lodge is situated in the exquisite Mpumalanga Lowveld, South Africa. Its idyllic surrounds set this beautiful resort apart. However, it also enjoys convenient accessibility. It is only 20 minutes from the Kruger Mpumalanga Airport and just over half an hour from the world-acclaimed Kruger National Park. Famous tourist attraction God's Window is less than an hour's drive away.

From the lodge, the glorious White River Golf Course can be viewed at the spectator's leisure, while dense forests and vast expanses of lush greenery provide ample stunning vistas.

The lodge boasts tasteful décor and architecture, complemented by friendly staff and efficient service.

The various verandahs provide the ideal escape from which to observe the surrounds, spend time reflecting on the day's activities or plan your itinerary. Alternatively, relax in front of a toasty fire in the lounge or alongside the crystal pool.


Oliver's Lodge has only 12 rooms and a family cottage, granting it a sense of exclusivity and personalised care. Elegant, stylish décor defines these suites, ensuring that guests are comfortable. All suites have en-suite bathrooms and stunning views.

All of these suites have HiFi speakers in the bathroom and a fireplace. The Executive Suites are equipped with an outside shower and a private lounge and bedroom, each with a fireplace.

In addition to world-class accommodation, Oliver's is also recognised for its superior restaurant and menu. In fact, it has achieved a rating amongst the country's top 100 restaurants five times! The A la Carte menu showcases South African flavours with Mediterranean and European influences. The cellar is brimming with excellent South African wines; certainly one to suit every dish. For an added twist, raclette and fondue options are available to be enjoyed in the cosy setting of the cellar.
