2 day Glamping Safari
Mar 2020 • Couples
It was a great trip and a great value in my opinion. We stayed in the Tent and it was the most romantic place we have ever stayed. 5 star accommodations in a tent. The restaurant was excellent as well. The Game drives were excellent way to safely see the Animals in natural habitat. I also enjoyed the fact that one was in a desert area and the other was in a mountainous region. Felt like I got to see two ecosystems on one trip. The big thing to understand is this is 300 miles from Capetown. So in two days you do a lot of driving in a van. There is no way around this, it’s simply location and they make it as enjoyable as possible but it is not for you if you do not like long car trips. Once there it is actually a little nicer than the photos portray!!

Beautiful weekend trip
Feb 2020
Great venture out east of Cape Town, including two game reserve drives and an overnight stay in an amazing game lodge with animals roaming around outside the cabins. Our host Maudi was a legend. Good company, good organiser, knowledgable about seemingly everything and considerate as a driver and host. Only thing I would change would be to make him brag more about his years as a pro soccer player.

Long journey but very interesting nature experience
Feb 2020 • Couples
The journey to get to the game reserve was very long although we had an excellent and friendly guide, Gerhard. He gave us very good information and made us feel like a united group (we were five). We made comfort stops along the way and it is a very beautiful route. But long. We had two game drives, one easy walk to look at plants and nature and we ended up seeing four of the big five and some you really got a close encounter with while others like the lion you saw in a distance. Dinner and breakfast was included in the trip but lunch you paid yourself on site. We stayed over night at buffels drift resort glamping(secluded exclusive large tent houses) with hippos and antilopes as neighbours. Wish I could have had one more night there to enjoy the peaceful settings. Excellent food and friendly staff. Overall a very pleasant experience and to the company :take care of your Gerhard, he is a gem as a tour guide!!

The drive is long, but we promise the views and wildlife is worth it!! Thank you for taking the time to share your 2-day Wildlife and Safari tour experience with us. We are delighted to hear that our marvellous guide Gerhard added so much value and information on your tour. Seeing four of the big 5 is an amazing spectacle!

What an amazing trip!
Dec 2019 • Solo
This trip was everything I could have hoped for and more! Maudi our driver was brilliant and ensured we all had a great time. The first game drive was spectacular, we saw so many animals up close including lions who were about 3m from the car. We couldn’t do the bush walk as one of our party was on crutches and it was raining, but the guides added on extra time to the safari drive so it was still fabulous.

The accommodation at Bufflesdrift was absolutely amazing and the staff were very kind and helpful! The tents were spectacular and I wish I could have stayed longer (I will definitely be back!!!) I would recommend the elephant walk, it was one of the highlights!! You get to walk with them, the guides were fabulous and friendly even when some of us were a bit nervous to get close to the elephants. The elephants were obviously very well looked after and loved being around people (no chains on then or anything like you hear horror stories about).

My only small negative about the trip was that it would be good to have a slightly smaller group, we had 11 people and it caused some minor hiccups with timings and some people being difficult, however this was not our drivers fault, he did his best to accommodate some awful guests who were not very considerate of the rest of the group. Our driver did a good job of dealing with them and not letting it get in the way of the rest of us having a good time.

On the whole I absolutely loved this trip and would love to thank Maudi for an amazing weekend!

I can highly recommend this 2 day trip where there are fantastic game drives with beautiful views and animals. You also gave the opportunity to walk with orphaned elephants and feed them which is fabulous. The accommodation is really beautiful in luxurious tents.

Great safari with really good tour guide Nev!!
Aug 2019
Was worth the 2 day experience, too much drive but really easy with Nev (Siyabulela). He will explain you each detail of the region and also fun stories. He made us the trip much more enjoyable.

We could see 4 out 5 of the Big5 during the 2 game drives, please don't miss the Elephant walk and enjoy a beer in the backpackers place, chilling and making friends.

Thanks man for this great 5-star review. Yeah, the 4hour return trip to the safari game drive location is pretty far, but so well worth it. Wow - 4 out of Big 5 animal sights are amazing! Thanks again for recommending our 2 Day Wildlfie + Safari experience, keep'on adventuring - from Ferdi & team Hotspots2c
