Action, adventure, and gorgeous days in the bush. That’s a day at Buffelsdrift Game Lodge! From family-friendly fun to walking on the wild side, there’s never a dull moment. Ready to start planning already? Let’s take a look!

Dawn Breaking in the Bush

Imagine opening your eyes in the pre-dawn glow of a pristine African morning, sipping a coffee to shake off the last of your dreams. Around you, the first light is breaking, and the birds of the bush are starting to wake. Predators have spent the night hunting and may even be moving in for the kill. The bush is alive and thriving around you. It’s prime game viewing time, and the experience of a lifetime awaits.

Whether you opt for a specialist game drive like our unique meerkat drives, or want the full traditional safari experience, the action starts early, and thrills await.

Elephants, Hippos, and Breakfast Delights

By the time you return, a delicious breakfast is waiting for you in the Buffelsdrift restaurant. Packed with local flavour and lovingly brought to life by our culinary team, you’ll have plenty to enjoy as you swap eager safari stories with each other.

Outside, the first animals of the day come to drink from the waterhole, and hippos pop their heads up from time to time. Our three biggest team members- our precious elephants- will make their first appearance of the day.

Apex Predators Await

Be sure to plan some time for our free-roaming cheetahs and a beautiful view overlooking our lions in their enclosure (lions experience). These are, of course, fully wild animals! Experience these iconic apex predators as nature intended and learn more about our conservation efforts that help ensure they’re still here for our children’s children.
