A unique experience is on offer at Buffelsdrift Game Lodge found just off Route 62 in Oudtshoorn, forming part of the Garden Route and Klein Karoo. From this fantastic location expect to enjoy the magnificent scenery, wildlife and bird species, special safari activities, and four-star luxury accommodation arrayed around the edge of a hippo-filled dam.
With the ruggedly beautiful Swartberg mountains in the background you can look out for 22 species of animals—including elephant, rhino, cape buffalo, giraffe and hippo—as well as over 200 bird species. Truly memorable experiences are the Meerkat Safari, which sees you glimpsing these little characters emerging from their burrows in the morning, and interactive Elephant Experiences which can include brushing, feeding or walking the lodge’s 3 gentle giants—Jabari, Bulelo and Malaika.
The luxury tented accommodation is not to be outdone by the rest and consists of 9 Luxury Waterfront Tents with sundecks overlapping the water, 16 Luxury (Horizon View) Tents with elevated views, and 4 Family Tents sleeping up to 5. Amenities include full en suite bathrooms, hot outdoor shows, dual air conditioning, tea/coffee-making facilities and more besides.
