Dream Hotels & Resorts partners with Olifants River Lodge

JOHANNESBURG, 09 February 2023 – Dream Hotels & Resorts (Dream) is pleased to include Olifants River Lodge in Mpumalanga within its dynamic portfolio of mixed-use holiday accommodation.

“Having acquired 60% of the operating company, our partnership with Olifants River Lodge allows us to assist in growing its local and international sales footprint, distribution network, and marketing channels,” says Brent Dickson, Director of Dream Hotels & Resorts.

“We will also start the process of aligning the property with our management standards, operating procedures, and best practice for an improved guest experience.”

Settled on the edge of the Great Olifants River on the R555, this Highveld hideaway offers a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the world. Guests also have the option to camp, caravan or stay in one of the comfortable cabins, chalets, or cosy apartments.

“If you’re heading anywhere between Johannesburg or Pretoria and Mbombela (Nelspruit), Olifants River Lodge makes for a superb stopover,” Dickson adds. “But with plenty to do on-site, you may just want to stay a little while longer. There are braais to light, trails to hike and fish to catch.”

Aside from providing budget-friendly accommodation for South African travellers, the property further accommodates weddings, corporate conferences, team builds, and groups of scholars. Olifants River Lodge boasts one of Mpumalanga’s largest conference venues which can accommodate up to 800 delegates, making it the perfect venue for corporates or events as it is situated equidistance from Johannesburg, Pretoria, Polokwane and Nelspruit.

With so much on offer within the surrounding region, Dickson further highlights how they are looking forward to working closely with Olifants River Lodge and helping it reach its full potential.

“A huge part of our investment into the property will include funds earmarked for refurbishments over the next 12 – 18 months. We’re aiming to commence with the initial upgrades in May this year.”

“With Olifants River Lodge now a member of the Dream Hotels & Resorts family, we are looking forward to welcoming travellers to experience their dream holiday along the banks of the Olifants River,” he concludes.
