If you’re looking for a unique ‘bushveld’ experience, look no further then Buffelsdrift Game Lodge. Nestling in the heart of the famous ‘Little Karoo’, itself part of the exquisite [and completely malaria free] Garden Route, there’s no more perfect spot for animal lovers and those seeking relaxation to bask in the beauty of the African bush.

With the Swartberg mountains as a dramatic backdrop, iconic Oudtshoorn and her ostriches lying only kilometers away, and our very own waterhole unfolding on the doorstep, Buffelsdrift offers understated elegance and luxury in our tented camps. Experience a real taste of Africa as you sleep under her glittering skies.

You’ll find rhino, buffalo, elephant, giraffe and even hippos frequenting the waterhole, one of the only sources of water in the dry surrounding grasslands. Rich birdlife sings in the bushes surrounding you. Choose to partake in a classic African safari, our totally unique Meerkat safari drive, or take the chance to meet some of our rehabilitated animals up close and personal and help in their care. You can also venture a little further afield to explore the Cango Caves, the ostrich farms of Oudtshoorn, or even hike through challenging Gamaskloof Valley. The area is saturated with culture and history for you to explore, and even boasts some acclaimed local wine farms to challenge your palette.

Meet our friendly team for drinks and sundowners on the main lodge deck, or drop into our delicious restaurant for a classic breakfast, lunch or dinner. Relax in our on-site spa and feel your stress melt away. Whatever your flavour of fun, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for here.
