It’s time to go glamping! If you’ve ever longed for the intimacy with nature and unique bonding experience of a camping vacation, but with all the mod cons of the very best hotel rooms, then it’s time you experienced this sensational holiday style for yourself. Buffelsdrift Game Lodge is proud to offer you the very best luxury tented camps to enhance your bush experience. Everyone should try glamping at least once- and we guarantee you’ll be hooked for life!

What on earth is glamping, anyway?

Glamping is what happens when the very best of modern luxury fuses with the natural beauty of the bush. Relax and unwind in the untamed glory of the bush, with an authentic camping experience that doesn’t sacrifice any of the mod cons. Relax on the sundeck at the water’s edge. Sip sundowners as animals roam around you. Fall asleep to the soft cries of the night birds.

Who wants a one-size-fits-all experience, anyway? That’s not how we travel. You want to be a part of the beauty of nature around you, immersing yourself in the wild bush and the unique cultures that grew from it. Glamping, a clever portmanteau of ‘glamour’ and ‘camping’,  is a way to experience real luxury and gorgeous locales, offering an authentic experience that packs the very best of everything into your vacation. Love yourself, love luxury…  love the world around you by living life to its very best.

Going beyond a mere tent

Buffelsdrift Game Lodge is proud to be part of the global glamping movement. What better way is there to experience the world’s most beautiful vistas than on an exciting adventure that brings you up-close-and-personal with nature’s bounty? From our waterhole ‘tents’, you’ll be treated to panoramic views, the song of the bush, the soothing sounds of lapping water, and the sweet scent of fresh bush air. 

Glamping isn’t just for couples. Bring the whole family along, and enjoy the best the bush has to offer. Or celebrate something super special in our ultra-luxe elevated Horizon View tented accommodation, nestled in the unique Cape Fynbos. Perched slightly above the landscape, mere steps from the water’s edge, these extra-opulent options are perfect for honeymooners, anniversaries, or just as a special bush getaway you’ll never forget.

Enjoy the fun at a special residents-only swimming pool overlooking the Swartberg mountains and waterhole. Relax in the invigorating air of an African morning. Plan for your Bush Safari, and say hi to the elephants as you pass. Escape the heat in a peaceful retreat away from it all, or hop over to our restaurant or spa for something super-special. With Buffelsdrift Game Lodge’s spectacular glamping experience on hand, you’ll never want to vacation another way.
