There are ten campsites each taking a maximum of 8 people.

A hide is overlooking the human-made waterhole at the campsite. The hide offers a unique game viewing opportunity in the second story hut with aluminium glass windows. The Hide is at the waterhole so guests will be up close to the visiting game. There is a wooden walkway from the hide that takes you to the campsite and provides a safe lookout point.

There are numerous waterholes around Olifantsrus Campsite making for excellent game viewing. Olifantsrus Campsite is home to fewer tourists in this part of the park as most accommodation is on the eastern end of the park.
