      Amazing guide and meerkat experience
      We did the meerkat safari and it was amazing. Our guide was sheryll, she was incredibly knowledgeable about all local wildlife, not just the meerkats. She made our tour an enjoyable and fun one from start to finish. Thanks sheryll! The reserve itself is stunning and the tour is well worth the early start.

      Amazing stay at Buffelsdrift
      Unfortunately we could only book the waterhole tents for one night. It was an amazing experience. Tents are really well outfitted overlooking the pond. Staff is super friendly and helpful which made our stay so convenient. Food at the restaurant is outstanding. Can recommend everyone to visit this place when traveling in South Africa.

      The food did not live up to the views and service
      4 of us went for supper arriving early. Pleasant drinks with excellent view and great service. Some hassle over booking but eventually outstanding table and views. Service quality continued good. However the pork neck steaks were tough and the other dishes not exciting. Saw some game. Parking good.

      Tranquil and Beautiful
      We have been back for our 4th time to Buffelsdrift Game Lodge. It is such a beautiful and tranquil setting with really good food at the restaurant. We love the Elephant Experience in particular.

      Awesome
      What a beautiful place the whole experience was awesome . The whole elephant experience was worth every penny from feeding them to hugging them just fantastic. This is a must for anyone visiting Oudtshoorn you will not be disappointed.

      Enjoyable couple of days
      My husband and I visited for a couple of nights and enjoyed our stay very much - the luxury tent was perfectly positioned to watch the hippo get out of the water in the evening for a stroll. The tent had everything we needed. clean throughout with a comfortable bed outdoor shower and indoor bath. Great view from the porch. We went on the game drive in the early morning which was very informative and enjoyable. All staff were very happy in their work we heard one of the ladies cleaning a room singing away (told her she should enter the next "South Africa has talent" everyone was welcoming and helpful. Thank you for a lovely stay

      Company failed
      We did the same 4 years ago and it was amazing. This time our Tourguide was really nice and she was doing her best. We had an Emergency and NOBODY answers her phone or the radio, she was lost woth us out there! That is a big saftey issue. No one should be put in the bishes by herself and 12 people! So there is a MUST in clearing that!!

      Very nice experience
      We had a very nice experience with our 2 boys (1,5y + 3,5y). We booked a Buffeldrift safari and a Elephant experience. Both impressive!

      Humbling elephant experience
      Interacting with those magnificent specimens was an experience of a lifetime. They're gentle giants. Their handlers are amazing people. I'd say both elephant and handler are lucky to have each other.

      Cheetah Experience - Exciting safari!
      Our guide drove us safely through the area and brought us close to the cheetahs. She explained a lot about the behaviour of these wonderful animals. We were allowed to get within 10 metres of them. A unique and rewarding experience!

      Fifth return visit
      Bush safari which we always enjoy. Truck broke down but guide great Claudia. Not allowed to stay for a meal as 3/4 of all tables were empty but apparently fully booked. Ridiculous and unwelcoming.

      Giraffes
      Knowledgeable guide who found giraffes, zebra and lots of different antelope. Disappointed not to see rhino and buffalo but nothing guaranteed. Stop half way round for complimentary drinks and crisps. Worth heading down to the lake by the restaurant after your Safari, with our binoculars we saw hippos in the lake.

      Love, love, love!!!
      We had a misfortune to experience rain and cold, but wow, such an incredible morning!! We were given ponchos to keep us warm, and the guide was amazing! After an hour ride, and a few minutes walk under the rain, we were greeted by the most amazing encounter ever, a sight we will never forget!! A male cheetah chilling under a tree, looking at us totally unconcerned by our presence. Nature at its best! Thank you guys for taking such good care of such superior beautiful creatures!!

    OK, it wasn't Kruger, it is a small, private reserve 1/20 the size.
    It does make a huge effort to home a lot of endangered animals and for that it is wonderful.

    There is not a zoo feel to the bush safari, as you see animals grazing in their natural habitat. The animals are cared for and happy.

    Half way through the adventure, they pull over and we got out of the jeep and were treated to water, ice tea, and beer.

    Very informative and a lot of fun.

    We chose the bush safari as we wanted to see the animals living in the wild (although it’s a game reserve, but the guys really take care of them all and doing a great job). Views are out of this world! Our guide explained to us everything about the wild animals living on the estate, which was really insightful. It was raining, and it was cold, but we managed to see even meerkats. Usually they go out of their holes early in the morning to soak up the sun, but since the weather was bad, they got out while we were there! Amazing!!! Such a bonus!

    A group of 4,2 couples, went on the afternoon game drive and it didn’t disappoint. With a knowledgeable guide - Katherine - who drove us we saw springboks, giraffes, Cape buffalo, rhino, meerkat, Nyala , grey roebuck and a glims of eland. The two hours flew by and the blankets came in handy as the wind was quite bitter. The views were stunning. Would highly recommend if you are in the Oudtshoorn area.
