          Oliver’s is a great place. Nice, big rooms, excellent kitchen and some good golf courses around. Plus only 40 km to the Kruger Park. This is a place where one can spend 1-2 weeks, playing golf and visiting Kruger and other tourism spots.

          Oliver’s has been wonderful. Staff is very accommodating. Food very good. Oliver’s even prepared a breakfast to go since we are leaving before the restaurant opens.

          We would like to thank you again for such a wonderful stay at Oliver’s last week. The rooms were lovely, well cleaned, and very comfortable. In particular, the food was delicious and Jeanne was so accommodating with our children’s allergies and our vegan dishes. Pretty and Calvan did an excellent job with their service and we appreciated their hard work.

          We had a wonderful 3 nights there, the staff were brilliant, the food scrumptious and on Chris’ birthday a beautiful cake appeared which was so appreciated and totally unexpected. We were all really sad to leave after such fantastic hospitality.

          Oliver’s lounge and the restaurant belonging with it is simply marvellous. I live in France and you know what they say about France. But the phrase could also have been “living and dining like God in Oliver’s”; really superb place to stay (and celebrate your 50th birthday).

          Very nice place, and very good restaurant. You were right, it was worthy to travel the extra miles to get there.

          When we moved to Oliver’s in White River we experienced a real contrast. This was probably the most beautiful and well kept accommodation offering the best and friendliest service which we had known before. The owner couple are a real treasure, the husband is named the best cook in the region.

          Oliver’s Lodge is really good and they upgraded our bedroom (they have such a good opinion of Go2Africa!!!). Two days are ok for this area.
