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.

Verified reviewexcellent

we visited buffels drift on a month long holiday whilst visiting family. i absolutely loved the fact that you can have a horse back safari and enjoyed every moment of this spectacular experience. we highly reccomend this beautiful experience and for other couples or familys to visit. we are even considering getting married at this amazing reserve where it can be wild, romantic and intimate all at the same time and i love that your guest can also stay at the reserve. the staff were friendly and made us feel soo welcome, out of the two game reserves we visited, this was the best by far!

Verified reviewexcellent

This was my fiance's first time in Africa and we had the most amazing time. The game guides were super knowledgable and kept us facinated with really interesting info about the animals (like where tortoises go when it rains). The food was amazing and the accommodation spectacular. We are hoping to come back again very, very soon.
