You, Your Honeymoon, And Buffelsdrift: A Match Made in Heaven

It’s time to take the romance on holiday! If you’re looking for the perfect way to extend the magic of your dream day and celebrate your union in style, there’s no better place to call home for your honeymoon than the dreamy, mountain-fringed views of Buffelsdrift Game Lodge in the Western Cape, Oudtshoorn.

Experience the Heart of the Bush

Come to where elephants play, cheetahs and lions roam, and the Blue Crane calls overhead. Destination weddings are all the rage at the moment, and if you’re looking to tie the knot at a Karoo game lodge like no other, we can help too! Our charming private wedding chapel, perched right on the edge of the watering hole, is sure to woo you as easily as your sweetie did.

But once the Big Day is over, it’s time to spend some romantic time together as newlyweds. Sip cocktails as the African sun sets over the water, sample delectable delights in the restaurant, and let the soft scents, sounds, and peace of the bush wash away your cares and the stress of wedding planning. As dawn breaks, head out on an authentic bush safari, and let the perfect stillness of an African morning carry you away.The Karoo is an ancient landscape, where the heavy sense of time will remind you how fleeting life can be, and why love matters so much. With achingly open blue skies, lush bush, and spectacular views to amp up the romance, you’ll never want to leave.

Explore the Thriving Karoo

But there’s plenty to keep you entertained, and help you shape those memories that will last a lifetime. Experience our lions and cheetahs as nature intended, wild and free. Meet our resident elephants up close and personal, and let their curious natures and crinkly charms delight your heart. Take a night drive in the depths of the primal night to find the ‘Shy Five’, and cuddle up a little closer as our expert guides lead you to magical experiences. Find the perfect spot for an Instagram announcement on our heritage walk, and look at the world from a different perspective on a unique meerkat safari. Round it off with a couple’s treatment at our on-site spa to amp up the romance further.Or head out to explore the beauty and delights of the Klein Karoo area. This is the home of the world-renowned Cango Caves, after all! Sample farm-fresh delights and local wines at every turn, have fun at the ostrich farms, and head up into the mountains of the Swartberg Game Reserve for a different side of the Western Cape.There’s nowhere better to celebrate a honeymoon in style than in our luxury tented camps, so why not let Buffelsdrift Game Reserve help you make memories and keep the romance alive as part of your Special Day?Images: Danelle Stofberg
