This was my second visit here. Simply love this place. A great place to stay while visiting the Oudtshoorn area and Cango Caves.

If I think of Africa. I see myself in the bush with the smell of wild flowers. The noise of wildlife and beautiful sunsets. Buffelsdrift is a place were you can find this in a malaria free environment.
