About Buffelsdrift Game Lodge
Buffelsdrift is a sprawling game farm in the foothills of the Swartberg Mountains in the Cango Valley, Pristine bushveld, lush vegetation and a 5 ha dam provides a haven for twenty game species and more than 217 bird species.
Buffelsdrift Game Lodge is situated 6.5km outside Oudtshoorn, en route the Cango Caves. The lodge is in the heart of ostrich country, half-an hour’s drive from the Swartberg Nature Reserve.
