After two long hiatus years, it’s finally time to roll up your sleeves and get down with your creative self at the 6th Klein Karoo National Arts Festival (KKNK). With Buffelsdrift Game Lodge as the perfect home base, it doesn’t matter if you’re here for the full festival or just on a day trip. Fun, culture, and art await!

The Return of the KKnK

Running from 29 March to 3 April 2022, The KKnK is a Karoo establishment everyone has been sorely missing. Dedicated to celebrating South Africa’s unique culture and art through the eyes of homegrown artists, the KKnK attracts visitors throughout South Africa and the world. Performing and visual arts are all on display, honouring the rich history of Oudtshoorn and the Klein Karoo.

But it’s not all about the fun and glamour. The KKnK also hopes to constructively aid in nation-building through the vital arts field. It helps develop sustainable platforms, art networks, and economic and social development programs that help artistic South Africans grow towards a better future.

Just as the Buffelsdrift foundation hopes to foster grassroots change in how we conserve our critical wild heritage, the KKnK hopes to promote and foster our shared artistic and cultural heritage.

Experience the Best of Karoo Hospitality

If you’re looking to add some exciting exploration of the arts to your perfect bush holiday at our private game reserve, there’s no better time to come to the Karoo. The full festival program will be coming online shortly, complete with some exciting new digital innovations, and tickets will be limited to ensure they stay compliant with local restrictions, so make sure you act fast and get your tickets booked.

Buffelsdrift Game Lodge is here to make sure you have your accommodation covered in our luxury tented camps, so that’s one planning item off the list. Near enough to the heart of the action that you won’t miss a moment, but calmly situated in the gorgeous shadow of the Swartberg Mountains to ensure peace and quiet, there’s no better place to start your exploration of the best of the Klein Karoo cultural circuit. Why not seal the deal with a rejuvenating trip to the Buffelsdrift Spa, too, and treat your heart and soul together?
