Guest Comments

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have stayed on longer if time permitted. The game drive was excellent and we saw a wide variety of animals.

Buffelsdrift Game Lodge proved to be the best holiday my family has had in a long time. The facilities, service, cleanliness and food were absolutely excellent. The service was friendly and they were always ready to assist. Our five year old and ten year old enjoyed every minute of the elephant experience and game drive and the Lodge staff presenting these activities focused on the children and made these memorable experiences for them as well as us. An added surprise was the brilliant location of the lodge, central to many other attractions within a 20km radius i.e. the Cango Caves, Cango Wildlife Ranch, Wilgewandel Play Park etc. Everyone was thoroughly entertained as well as Mom and Dad getting to unwind in the tranquil lodge environment. We cannot wait to go back and would highly recommend it as a couple or a family get away. Absolute value for money and a luxurious experience.
