    Great camp! The overlook was breathtaking, we loved it after a long day. The Olifants camp was clean, well kept and the location was amazing.

Made us laugh! We had booked a sunset drive with a field guide. The drive goes out at 4.30 and returns three hours later in the dark. This time frame gives you a chance to see the predators that are starting to prepare for the evening's hunt and possibly some nocturnal ...

We were driving along yet another bumpy dirt road, full moon in a cloudless sky over our left shoulder, when we heard loud splashing sounds.

After the 3/4 moon set there were lots of stars out on the clear night. ...

This evening our team facilitated a youth group in Ocean View about dealing with insecurities.
