What more can i say regarding glamping/camping. Everything we expected. Glamping they say!? Not the fuss of camping and setting up. Aircon was a pleasure and the quietness was the best. Thank you. You will see us again.

Luxury tents - perfectly positioned next to the river and offering a good degree of privacy. The beds are extremely comfortable and the facilities make for a very relaxing and enjoyable camping experience. For those seeking calm and quiet, do check to make sure there are no 'Bachelor weekends etc' booked at the other venues on the farm as there may be some noise 'overspill'. - this said the staff were friendly and immediately on-hand to assist, with their guest's best interests at heart. Will definitely visit again and would 100% recommend.

Thoroughly enjoyed the luxury tents, besides the annoyance of a load of mosquitoes at night.

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.
