Buffalo Hotel is the oldest hotel in Mpumalanga's "Wild Frontier" tourist region. It has always been a landmark in the Lowveld. It is located on the corner of First and Torchwood Street in Hectorspruit, exactly 1 km from the N4 after the Hectorspruit turn-off is taken. The Hotel was originally established in 1923. It is a national and internationally renowned holiday, conference and event destination. It is ideally situated for business travelers, particularly those with projects in Mozambique or the Lowveld. Our mission is to provide affordable, luxury accommodation and entertainment at competitive prices.

Our affordable luxury en-suite double bedrooms are tastefully decorated, all are equipped with air conditioning, Satellite TV, tea and coffee making facilities for our guests' comfort. To round off a perfect day, relax in the secure Gardens at the pool or enjoy a cocktail at the lapa overlooking the swimming pool. We also offer a unique venue for elite banqueting and wedding events. A wheelchair friendly room is also available.

We enrich the quality of life and spoil our guests beyond their expectations. This is supported by our la carte restaurant, conference facilities, fabulous lapa, swimming pool and related conveniences. We are well positioned to provide access to guided day and night Kruger Park tours, bush safaris by foot, horseback riding, elephant back safaris, quad bike adventures, tiger and other fishing expeditions and many more. All activities require prior arrangements and bookings.

The world famous original Buffalo Bar with its record trophy, from which the hotel's name is derived, is a famous landmark in the Lowveld. It also features a sports bar with large flat screen TVs and an adjoining veranda with pool tables and dart boards and other entertainment activities. A dedicated bar menu is available to satisfy all appetite requirements of thirsty visitors at anytime of the day.

Ample safe parking is provided. The spacious hectare sized premises is surrounded by an electrified fence. The secure parking area is ideal for towing and loaded 4X4 vehicles with boats, trailers, campers and caravans. Holiday guests on their way, or coming from Mozambique are specifically catered for.

Hectorspruit, between Malelane and Komatipoort, is 95 km from Maputo in Mozambique and 62 km from Mbombela (Nelspruit). We are therefore an ideal weekend getaway for city dwellers from the Maputo and the Mbombela areas.

Guest Comments

Warm reception and easily accessible but service sub-standard, rooms are spacious but not well kept/cleaned. Noise levels too high late at night (pub) if bring your family and kids!!
Paint and upkeep (water damage)of certain areas to be seriously considered!


Affordable rates, We had a nice time, my kids enjoyed swimming in the pool,very friendly staff but need to improve on their food, and to include toiletries in the bathrooms

Very enjoyable
