Verified reviewexcellent

We stayed in the luxury tents at Buffalo Drift for two nights. This was the perfect place for us to unwind and to just do absolutely nothing but relax. The weather was extremely hot which makes the tents very hot but the river is easily accessible in order to cool off. The kitchen has all the basics (however you might need to bring additional things such as a tin opener and a spatula for the pan). The braai area is lovely with a bench and table for you to work on. We would highly recommend this getaway for rest and relaxation.

Verified reviewvery good

Our stay at Buffalo Drift in one of the luxury tents this weekend was great and would highly recommend. We will definitely be back again. The only problem we found was the little roads leading to the actual tents between the orchard is not really suitable for sedan cars because we did get stuck twice. There are pools of water across these road which turned the sand into soft mud. We did however, manage to get out
