The Olifantsrus Camp offers access to state of the art double story hide (a thatched hut structure) (reputedly first of its kind in Sub-Saharan Africa and Southern Africa) with a fantastic view of manmade waterhole that has become particularly favourite one for elephants, true to the campís name ("Elephantís Rest"). The hide is split level and has aluminium glasses around it in front of a waterhole installed for close-up incredible game viewing.
