Situated right in the heart of the Klein Karoo, Buffelsdrift Game Lodge Activities offers an unforgettable African bushveld experience. Our 34 free-standing luxury tents bring simplicity, style and comfort to authentic African accommodation.

Our activities:

Free Roaming Cheetah Experience:
Guests are presented with the opportunity to track these elegant predatory animals in their natural habitat. One of our skilled guides will lead the 4 – 5 hour excursion, tracking these impressive creatures by vehicle and by foot.

African Bush Safaris:
• Bush Safari – This 2h game drive takes guests on an open game viewing vehicle, allowing unobstructed views of the vast Karoo landscape, its distinctive vegetation and a wide range of wildlife including Giraffe, Hippo, Zebra, Springbok, Buffalo and many more.
• Night Drive – On our night safari (±2h), you can expect to see some less familiar faces as the shy nocturnal creatures like the aardwolf, caracal and porcupine come out to hunt — quite a special experience as these elusive creatures are very seldom seen during daytime.

Elephant Experiences – feeding, brushing & walking:
Come meet our 3 beautiful elephants, Jabari, Malaika & Bulelo up close. This is a truly unique activity and probably one of the most educational experiences you’ll ever have with these colossal beauties.

Lion Experience:
Guests will get a close-up, elevated view of these majestic predators being fed in their 5ha enclosure by one of our skilled rangers. Throughout the tour, your guide will also inform you on some interesting facts about these fascinating big cats and explain why they are kept in captivity.

Meerkat Safaris:
At the crack of dawn we head out to meet one of the Shy Five, the meerkat. Watch these little guys emerge from their burrows at dawn, embarking on their daily activities and warming their bellies in the first morning rays.

The Spa:
Add some pampering to your African bushveld experience with our wide range of relaxing spa treatments, massages & facials. The Spa is surrounded by pristine bushveld, towering mountains and open plains as far as one can see and also overlooks a 5ha dam with a variety of free roaming wildlife along its banks and more than 217 bird species.
