African Bush Safaris in Oudtshoorn

Bush Safari

Here at Buffelsdrift Game Lodge, we offer Bush Safaris not only to our residents, but to the public as well.

“We call it Bush Safaris, as our guides are trained to not only educate our guests on our wide variety of animals, but also about our bird and plant species..”
– Andries van Schalkwyk | Managing Director

During our bush safaris ( game drives ), you can expect to experience true Karoo vegetation from our open game viewing vehicles. Our wide range of animals include Hippo, Elephant, Giraffe, Eland, Zebra, Buffalo, Rhino, Springbok and much more.  The duration of our bush safaris is ± 2 hours.  About midway through the safari, there is a refreshment break at one of our scenic lookout points.  These offer 360° panoramic views of the area as well as the Swartberg Mountains.
