We had great family time and the different activities were enjoyed by young and old. Beautiful luxury tents with electric blankets at night to keep you warm. Friendly and helpful staff. So many activities on offer in surrounding area as well. Buffelsdrift is well worth a visit!!
Buffelsdrift is located over scenic mountain passes into Oudtshoorn. The tented rooms are spacious and warmed for the winter months. The staff are friendly. We had a lovely few days in the tranquil setting.
From the moment we arrived, Buffeldrift made it an experience to remember! The most welcoming and friendly staff made our stay extra special. Waking up to the chirping of birds and grunting of hippos was a delight, the accommodation and views were spectacular.
We stopped at Buffelsdrift Game Lodge for lunch and enjoy dining on the outside deck overlooking the lagoon. I ordered the Kudu steak and was very pleased with my meal. Others in my group enjoyed their sandwiches and salads. Even more than the meal, we enjoyed watching the hippos as they rumbled up and down the lagoon bank. As we were driving up to the main lodge building, we saw the three (3) resident elephants, with their handler, off in the near distance. The entire experience and lunch was enjoyed by my family on a bright sunny day.
Honestly, one of the best if not the best experience of my life and at a price I was able to afford & enjoy! From start to finish, we were welcomed, names remembered, guided, supported, felt at ease to absolutely everything in between! The setting is superb, the accommodation is magnificent, the guides & management were exceptional and then you get to the animals. They really do roam free (with a huge piece of land). One thing which really topped off our trip here was the owner taking a short time out of his day to come & say hello and ask us about our trips & plans and generally interested in how we were getting on rather than it just being a necessity to say hello. A touch of class in my eyes. I could say so much more but it you are stuck on which safari to go for then look no further! THANKYOU!!! Sorry it took so long to write this review, only just coming down from the high of visiting…
What an awesome experience this was! We did the elephant feeding and encounter, and loved every moment of it. The reception staff were very friendly and welcoming, and the encounter's ranger was amazing. I would thoroughly recommend this experience!
Great family experience at Buffelsdrift Our family really enjoyed Great service, activities and food The most awesome experience was feeding the elephants! Gentle giants Thanks to the Buffelsdrift Team
We enjoyed our stay, but was a bit dissapointed that there wasn't more game to see on our game drive although the scenery was beautiful. We also think that Buffelsdrift is not very child friendly and wouldn't recommend it for couples with small children.
Always a great experience visiting Buffelsdrift, beautiful surroundings, comfortable accommodation and the best service. I would recommend Buffelsdrift to anyone who wants to have a safari getaway experience.
Our family had a wonderful stay at Buffelsdrift. We stayed for 3 nights and our package included a game drive, lion feeding and elephant feeding experience. We had so much fun and also had time to relax and spend some quality time with our children. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I will definitely recommend this game lodge!
