I loved our time at Buffelsdrift, it really was one of the best experiences that our family have had in all of our travels.
Our tent was AMAZING, it had everything we needed and the bed was so comfortable and the outside shower was great.
The food at the restaurant was some of the best of our time in South Africa, we never had a bad meal.
The pool was refreshing during the hot days and at night it was such a treat to sit outside the tent and look at one of the best starry skies I've ever seen.
The wild animals roaming throughout the property never got old, nor did watching the hippos in the dam outside the restaurant, particular sitting with a cold glass of wine and watching them leave for the dam for the day.
I really could not recommend this place enough, and hope to return again one day...

What an incredible place. We were travelling down the Garden Route and I wanted my stepdaughter to have a game experience on her first visit to SA. The tents were exquisite and the staff couldn’t have been friendlier or more helpful. The experiences on offer were fantastic with well informed and knowledgeable guides and we did them all: meerkat safari, lion feeding, elephant walking and feeding and a game drive. Thank you for an incredible experience
