Food is a cornerstone of life in South Africa, and nowhere else in the world can you experience the warmth, variety, and delicious temptations you will at Buffelsdrift Game Lodge. Packed with authentic love, passion, and pride, a unique taste of the Bushveld will soon have your taste buds tingling. The Klein Karoo is also home to some of the best South African wines, so there’s a treat indeed waiting for you!


Wine and Dine at the Watering Hole

The Buffelsdrift Restaurant extends over the local watering hole, so as you snack on something delicious, you’ll have a chance to watch hippos at play, wild animals as they come to drink, and enjoy the calls of the birds flying overhead.

And there’s plenty to enjoy, too! The Karoo is sometimes called South Africa’s breadbasket. People are often surprised by this fact, as it’s an arid semi-desert area, but the Karoo has a long history of producing delectable fresh produce. Buffelsdrift has built their succulent A La Carte Menu to showcase the fresh local produce that streams to our door, all with an authentic Karoo touch you’ll love.


Explore Wine Route 62

While the nearby Stellenbosch Wine Route attracts a lot of foreign press, experts know that the Klein Karoo, South Africa’s most easterly wine-making region, has some of the best hidden gems in the world. Spanning from Montagu to the Outeniquas, the full route makes for a wonderful treat for the wine lover in your life- and Buffelsdrift is perfectly positioned to call your home base if you’re wanting to explore all its delights. Fuelled by the rich soil of the mountains, many local vineyards offer organic wines rich in taste and diversity. Buffelsdrift is proud to offer you some of the best vintages from Route 62 through our carefully curated wine list, so you’re sure to find something you enjoy. From dry whites to fortified wines and potstill brandy, there’s plenty to enjoy! If beer is more your thing, don’t worry- we also have stellar local breweries for you to taste!

Breakfast on Safari

For those heading out on a morning game drive, don’t worry- there will be a scrumptious breakfast waiting for you when you come home. We serve our hot-and-cold buffet spread from 7am to 10am, so there’s plenty of time to tuck in, and the restaurant’s a la carte menu is available through the rest of the day. Between 10am and 5pm, there’s also our lighter lunch menu to explore.
