About Wild Olive Tree Camp

Right on the border of the Kruger National Park at the Orpen and Manyelti Gate a unique project has been established.

A luxury tented camp with 15 large cottage tents built and operated by the Mnisi community will give you the ultimate African rural experience.Whilst you listen to the elders telling their stories at the campfire, in the distance you can hear the cow bells of the cattle returning home signaling the end of the day and at the same time hear the hyena calling and the lion roaring telling you that the wilderness has woken up.

The camp is managed by English/Afrikaans/Dutch speaking staff.The ideal venue to start your Kruger Park Experience.

Safari: Morning and Afternoon Game Drives in an open vehicle into the Manyeleti section of The Greater Kruger National Park - excellent sightings in a quiet corner of the Park.

Spa: Wide variety of massage treatments, as well as manicure and pedicure, in this delightful little spa tucked into the bush by the riverbed.

          Maintenance needs to be done on the pool, However I do recognize that covid had a big impact on tourism which impacts items like maintenance.With that said it was absolutly fabulous being in the bush each tent has a very private setting and the staff is very friendly professional and outstandingly helpful, accommodating . exccelent experience to listen to the "sounds of the bush"and to watch the stars.

          The chairs they provide to sit on at your tent - extremely uncomfortable - between a bar stool and a chair. There was no hot water, and when we arrived for dinner - there had no alcohol to order with our dinner and their excuse was their order was put in too late to arrive, and our booking was done months ago - NOT ACCEPTABLE !!

          I really enjoyed the friendliness and competence of the staff.The highlight was the game drive, where, for the first time viewing animals at the KNP I was able to see the big five in one session, well done Patrick you are a good driver and guide.A suggestion: your maintenance guy needs to go through the different tent accommodation/s and check, check, check that all is as it should be.
