Olifants Rest Camp

Camp Flora and Fauna

The camp is situated in a basalt soil area, in ruggedveld. Some of the notable trees you’ll see include the Lowveld cluster-leaf, the mopane and the raisin bush. South of the river the vegetation turns from thornveld into mopane. Within the camp,there are plenty of trees and plants to see, some of which are unique to the area and cannot be found elsewhere in the Kruger. The sesame bush near the petrol station, which is the only accessible one in the park, as well as the aloes in the camp, aretwo of the biggest highlights where vegetation is concerned.

The camp is named after one of the animals you will come across the most; the elephant. But while elephant sightings are popular in the region, they are not the only animals you will encounter. Baboons, monkeys, lion and leopard are often seen during safaris and you might even be lucky enough to encounter a Cape clawless otter at one of the camps lookout points

Other Helpful Camp Information

All Kruger Park Camps have one thing in common; animals. It sounds sillysince you are in the Kruger and wild animals are everywhere, but all the camps run the risk of having a few unsuspecting visitors. Wildlife can easily sneak into the camp when no one is looking and can become a danger to camp guests.Always watch out for wild animals and should you come across one in the camp, don’t approach it.

While wildlife is one concern that you have to keep in mind, the other concern is insects. And not cute beetles, ladybugs and butterflies. Spiders and scorpions are two insects that you’ll find in just about every camp and they are able to leave a nasty reminder of their presence should they bite or sting you. Whenever, wherever, you are in the camp, always have your shoes on and always carry a torch around with you at night.

Spiders, snakes, scorpions and wild animals are all something to keep in mind, and so are mosquitoes. The Kruger National Park is situated deep within a malaria area and it is easy to contract the illness when staying in or visiting the park. Malaria is carried by infected mosquitos and spread through just one bite.All guests to the park shouldtake careful preventative measures to stay safe. This includes paying a visit to your doctor and getting preventative medication. Should you get infected, you might only notice the symptoms weeks later. Some of the symptoms include fever, headaches and body chills. If you think you are ill, get to your doctor as soon as possible.
