While you may only picture baking days under the hot African sun when you think of safari locations, winter can be a fantastic time to visit Buffelsdrift Game Lodge, both for game viewing opportunities and the host of fun activities available to you onsite.
Excellent game viewing
Winter can be as great a time as summer to consider an African safari. The cooler weather- still very mild by American and European standards- can make it considerably more comfortable for visitors, and the scarcity caused by the lack of rainfall brings game to available watering holes in droves. You’ll be able to meet our elephant herds up close and personal, watch our very own lions receive their daily feed and with the foliage scarcer on the bushes there will also be ample photography opportunities open to you. You’ll also still have the opportunity to head out on our truly unique meerkat safari after a bracing cup of coffee!
Relax and snuggle together
Of course, there’s no time like the winter for a relaxing and rejuvenating session at the spa! With pristine grassland lapping at the door and a magnificent view to help ease your stress, a series of restorative treatments at our on-site spa makes for the perfect winter break.
Gaze at the stars
While winter evenings will be cooler- remember to pack a jersey or light jacket- the payoff will also be much, much bigger. The breathtaking vista of the African starscape, unadulterated by the lights of the big city or summer rain clouds, will lay open to you. Finish off the evening with a mug of hot chocolate to set the tone, and everything is ready for the most perfect finale to a winter safari at Buffelsdrift Game Lodge.
No matter when you visit us, there’s a jam-packed schedule of activities open to you at Buffelsdrift Game Lodge, and winter often means pleasant temperatures and stunning photographic experiences. You’ll also escape the summer crowds- so why not get to planning your winter safari today?
