Unforgettable bushveld experience in the heart of the Little Karoo

Nestled in the picturesque landscape of the Klein Karoo, Buffelsdrift Game Lodge emerges as a premier destination along the renowned Garden Route. Just 6.5 kilometres outside Oudtshoorn, famously dubbed the ostrich capital of the world, this esteemed lodge promises a unique bushveld experience.

Located a mere 300m from the tar road leading to the iconic Cango Caves, Buffelsdrift Game Lodge boasts a prime spot adjacent to a sprawling 5-hectare waterhole teeming with life. Here, amid the tranquil surroundings, guests are treated to captivating sights of large fish, terrapins and even hippos.

From the comfort of the lodge’s wooden deck, visitors may catch glimpses of elephants strolling by, while hippos and fish lazily traverse the waters, creating a serene backdrop for the abundance of game grazing along the opposite bank. If luck is on your side, you may even witness the mighty fish eagle catching its daily meal.

Each tent features a private deck extending over the water, offering guests unparalleled views of hippos and other wildlife.

An additional 20 luxury tents provide magnificent vistas of the waterhole and surrounding lodge area, while five family tents nestled amid indigenous fynbos offer a secluded retreat.

For those seeking to cool off from the Karoo heat, a private swimming pool awaits, providing the perfect oasis in the bushveld.
