Oudtshoorn in the Summer

Accommodation, Oudtshoorn

The Karoo and Oudtshoorn is known for its hot and sunny weather during summer.  The magnificent views are spectacular during this time and you will be amazed by the Karoo beauty around us.

Our summers last between November and March with temperatures going up to 45 degrees Celcuis during the day.  Our evening might get cooler but could still be quite warm.  When visiting Buffelsdrift Game Lodge, you will be spoilt with air-conditioned tented accommodation and a lovely swimming pool overlooking the waterhole. Your luxury tent will also have an outdoor shower if you choose to cool off there.


The Outeniqua Mountains south of Oudtshoorn, blocks the cool ocean air where clouds also gather and rarely crawls over the mountain.  This causes the Klein Karoo and the Oudtshoorn area to be warm, sunny and unique.

Please also make sure when doing any of our activities ( Bush Safari, Horse Safari of Elephant Experiences ) ,   that you have protection against the sun and also have enough fluids to keep you hydrated.

Our evening Bush Safari’s will also provide you with softdrinks during summer and a lovely coffee (weather permitted) in the mornings as seen below.


Happy SUMMER loving!
