ENGLISH
We would like to introduce Buffelsdrift Game Lodge.

We offer unique, understated elegance in luxury tented-accommodation in Oudtshoorn.

With the Swartberg mountains as backdrop and a magnificent waterhole at your doorstep, it’s the closest you’ll get to the wild of the Klein Karoo and true African accommodation.

We are located 6.5 km just outside of Oudtshoorn, the Ostrich capital of the world. The lodge is situated only 300 metres from the tar road leading to the Cango Caves. The main lodge area is right next to a 5 hectare waterhole, filled with big fish, turtles and hippo.

From the wooden deck that surrounds the lodge area, you can see our elephants walking, our hippo and fish in the water as well as other game grazing on the opposite bank.

Testimonials

A dream come true! It was like in the big Hollywood movies! Living in the nature in an elegant tent with all the amenities of civilization. Lying in bed or in the bathtub (!) and looking outside to watch animals go by… Just great.

Gilamour

We stayed for 2 nights in this wonderful area. Besides the accommodation in a Family Tent, my kids loved all the animals around, especially the hippos and elephants. The Safari Tour on the property was for sure a Highlight for us. The entire stay, including Restaurant, good food, friendly people makes the trip unforgettable.

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.
