17 Years of Bushveld Perfection with Buffelsdrift

17 Years of Bushveld Perfection with Buffelsdrift

Out of Africa- with some luxury! Buffelsdrift Game Lodge is turning 17, and we’re proud to still be bringing you a true African experience, with all the luxury and mod-cons you could wish for. From our home deep in the heart of spectacular Oudtshoorn, it’s been a privilege and a pleasure to have grown into such an iconic part of the unique landscape around us. Here’s to many more decades celebrating with you, our beloved clients!

Luxury in the Heart of the Karoo

With Buffelsdrift’s luxury tented camps, you can sample the bush in true style. From king sized beds to en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, and even a minibar (shh… we won’t tell if you don’t) it’s the perfect blend of privacy, sanctuary, and bushveld style. Lapping the wateringhole, there’s no better view to enjoy- and you’ll be able to do so from the private sundecks right on the water’s edge. Relax, sip sundowners, and drink in the view while the bush comes to life around you.Joining seamlessly with the famous Cape Garden Route, and with beautiful Oudtshoorn and the famous Cango Caves lying conveniently close by, Buffelsdrift has become the bustling heart of the area. Whether you’re hoping to spend all day immersed in the heart of the bush, or are looking for a convenient home-from-home to enjoy as you explore South Africa’s breadbasket, it’s a privilege to help our guests get the very best from their time with us.

Africa at her Best

Our trained tour guides don’t just lead safaris, they build an authentic bushveld experience. From the cheetah and lions to the tiny meerkats and dung beetles, at Buffelsdrift you see the true faces of Africa in all their splendour. Buffelsdrift has never wanted to be just another tourist destination. Instead, we work closely with the surrounding community to help uplift and empower, as well as running a host of conservation projects through the now-thriving Buffelsdrift Foundation. Our hope is to leave a legacy that speaks for generations, helping to preserve the ancient and unique face of the Karoo for generations to come. From the incomparable fynbos biome to the animals and birds that call it home, our hope is to ensure the world around us thrives.Learn more about Africa’s different faces through our safaris and night drives, or return to nature on our Heritage Walks. One thing is for certain- your soul will thrive!

Friendly Faces and Soul-Soothing Treatments

Many of our guests love to snatch a moment or two to rejuvenate after a long day under the sun at our on-site spa. Or warm your heart with the authentic Karoo cuisine from our restaurant, rich in local-grown produce and the tastes of South Africa. No matter what your dream African adventure looks like, our friendly staff- many of whom have been with us for over a decade now- will help you make the very best of your experience here. We’re so proud to have been a part of this beautiful corner of the world for 17 years now. Why not come celebrate with us, and enjoy Africa your way? The friendly Buffelsdrift team are always on-hand to help you shape the bush experience of a lifetime, so don’t be shy. And don’t forget to say, “Hi” to our elephant trio, who are often the first to greet new visitors with a smile![/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
