Enjoy the Cape Garden Route with Buffelsdrift Lodge

Enjoy the Cape Garden Route with Buffelsdrift Lodge

Some say that touring the Cape Garden Route is like stepping into a canvas painted with nature's finest strokes. Buffelsdrift Game Lodge couldn’t agree more! We’re proud to be one of the best-positioned Garden Route game lodges if you’re looking for the perfect place to call home while you drink in the profound natural beauty of this exquisite corner of the Cape and Karoo. Here’s just a little of what awaits you on your journey. 

A Riot of Natural Beauty

Nestling along the coastal stretch from Mossel Bay to Storms River, the Cape Garden Route will also allow you to explore the vibrant beauty of our unique Fynbos biome, too. This unique ecosystem of fine and fragile native plants is found nowhere else in the world, and will be a riot of colour and beauty every spring. If you’re looking for the perfect way to jazz up a dull Northern winter, drinking in the sights and sounds as nature wakes from her slumber here in South Africa is the medicine for your soul the doctor ordered!

There’s plenty more to see and do along the Garden Route, too. In fact, wherever you go you'll be greeted by scenic wonders and cultural gems to enjoy. The diversity is staggering. Lush forests, pristine beaches, and quaint coastal towns entwine together to create a tapestry of experiences and beauty that will captivate every traveller's heart.

Why not begin your adventure in Mossel Bay, where the Bartolomeu Dias Museum Complex will give you a fascinating glimpse into the region's rich maritime history. The town of George, cradled by the Outeniqua Mountains, then brings a harmonious mix of outdoor pursuits and cultural immersion for you to enjoy. Moving onward, the Knysna Heads and the Knysna Forest unfold as one of the few sub-Saharan rainforests in Africa, with each corner showing you a new facet of the Garden Route's enduring allure.

From Beach to Desert in One Easy Route

Plettenberg Bay, with its golden shores and vibrant marine life, is another can’t-miss part of the Garden Route. As you approach Storms River and the Tsitsikamma National Park, you’ll find dramatic cliffs and verdant landscapes vying for space on your phone camera roll. Whatever you do on your journey, remember to stop and savour the flavours of local cuisine and discover unique treasures at craft markets along the way. You need to brag to loved ones back home after all! The Karoo isn’t called South Africa’s breadbasket for nothing.

Looking for the ideal place to call home during your Garden Route adventures? Tucked into the base of the Swartberg Mountains, the lodge seamlessly blends the very best in luxury with the surrounding African wilderness. Picture waking up to the symphony of wildlife and enjoying a leisurely breakfast with a stunning view of the tranquil waterhole. It’s the perfect backdrop to your Garden Route adventure! In between your exploration, enjoy immersive safari experiences, unwind with a spa treatment or relish a delightful meal at the lodge's restaurant, where the panoramic views of the surrounding bush will seduce your heart and soul.

The Cape Garden Route is an unforgettable journey, and one everyone should make at least once, whether you’re a curious local or an adventurous visitor. Let Buffelsdrift Game Lodge help make your Garden Route memories linger fondly long after your travels.
