Fabulous 8.8 From 37 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Phenomenal Mini-Safari Experience
We truly enjoyed our stay at Buffelsdrift Game Lodge. The staff is amazing - the waiters, animal handlers, guides, they all made us feel welcome and special. The luxury tent we stayed in was spacious and the view was beautiful. The a-la-carte menu at the restaurant was great and the food was excellent. We've stayed at another game lodge on the Garden Route, which was nice, but Buffelsdrift really is a first class experience - High quality service, food, accomodation and perfect location. 5***** STARS experience!!

Very good 8.0
Buffelsdrift is great place especially for kids. We were disappointed that the water level in the pond was so low that they had removed some of the hippos. The dinners were great.The staff seemed to try hard and were very friendly.

Excellent place to Stay
Excellent place to stay.The rooms are made from high quality canvas. A kind of tent ,yes. But the wooden floors and quality furniture and fully equipped bathroom dispose any idea of a tented " concentration camp" It is a well maintained de luxe room. The restaurant is beautiful and the food out of the top drawer. Everything ,including fast and friendly staff leaves nothing to complain about. We've been there in the middle of July. High winter. And boy,was it cold! Fortunately we had enough quality blankets. Would highly recommend this place to anybody looking for top class accommodation.
