We loved our tent. Seeing the wildlife around, especially in the morning was amazing.

The tent accommodation is novel and unique - but the noise definitely travels so expect early morning bird calls. The WiFi in our tent and in the resort was poor and the service at dinner was a bit chaotic. All that said, however, we enjoyed our few days here and there’s lots to see and do in the surrounding area.

Phenomenal Mini-Safari Experience
We truly enjoyed our stay at Buffelsdrift Game Lodge. The staff is amazing - the waiters, animal handlers, guides, they all made us feel welcome and special. The luxury tent we stayed in was spacious and the view was beautiful. The a-la-carte menu at the restaurant was great and the food was excellent. We've stayed at another game lodge on the Garden Route, which was nice, but Buffelsdrift really is a first class experience - High quality service, food, accomodation and perfect location. 5***** STARS experience!!

Buffelsdrift is great place especially for kids. We were disappointed that the water level in the pond was so low that they had removed some of the hippos. The dinners were great.The staff seemed to try hard and were very friendly.
