Treat yo’self. It seems like the phrase of the day. With ‘self-care’ a buzzword on everyone’s lips, it’s time to take some time for yourself. Nowhere on earth is there a more exquisite spa experience to be had then surrounded by the beauties of the African bushveld at a Karoo Game Lodge, after all! Today we take a closer look at what makes the Buffelsdrift Spa so special.

Release your stress at Buffelsdrift Spa

Modern life offers us a breakneck pace, filled with looming deadlines, increasing expectations and more and more workload. It’s little surprise that ‘stress’ has become a byword for almost everything. Yet the toll that is the strain of living at 100% all the time can take on the body is no joking matter. The body needs rest and rejuvenation to keep us healthy. Even vacation time alone doesn’t guarantee us the solitude and space we need to properly decompress and re-invigorate our bodies and minds. Spa days have many advantages, just some of which include:

  • Everyone needs ‘me time’: In the spa, you’re free from distractions, even those brought by your loved ones. This gives your brain time to truly unwind and release some of the constant ‘buzz’ of thoughts.
  • Boost your health: Massages release serotonin, the ‘feel-good’ hormone. Massage, steam and heat treatments help boost blood circulation. Facials keep your skin in tip-top condition. And all of it helps the body rest and relax.
  • Release stress healthily: Refresh and pamper your body, unknot your muscles and give your brain space to decompress? Or get through the day on a high of unhealthy sugar and caffeine instead? We all know which is the healthy answer!

The Buffelsdrift spa experience

Nestling into the foot of the Swartberg Mountains, the Spa @ Buffelsdrift couldn’t be more beautiful. Let pristine bushveld and lush vegetation give you the space you need to appreciate stillness and silence. Watch hippos and birds at play, and let our trained therapists help you unwind. The sounds of distant wildlife and soft music will lull your stress away.

Choose from a broad range of massage packages, foot-, hand- and facial treatments, wraps and exfoliators, manicures and pedicures, and even some grooming options to help you reshape into the best you there could be. Whatever you want from your treat day, we’ll make sure you get it.

Pairing up a spa day (or three) with a safari, or even overnight stays in our luxury tented accommodation, is one of the best ways you can take care of your body, mind and soul. Let the beauties of the Buffelsdrift Game Lodge envelope you and experience a spa like no other.
