Top class Oudtshoorn Accommodation

Buffelsdrift Game Lodge offers a unique bushveld experience in the heart of the Klein Karoo.

Guests are invited to experience true African accommodation in the understated elegance and luxury of our tented accommodation, where you’ll wake to the beautiful sounds of nature, the great Swartberg Mountains as backdrop and a magnificent waterhole at your doorstep.

A large wooden deck surrounds the lodge area, offering guests the opportunity to see elephants stately roaming the grounds, hippos leisurely lazing about the waterhole and other game grazing on the opposite bank.

You might even spot a fish eagle swooping down on its catch of the day.

The lodge is located a mere 6.5km from Oudtshoorn, referred to as the ostrich capital of the world, on the main route leading to the Cango Caves and various other interesting tourist attractions in the area.
