Our trip to Buffelsfontein was very disappointing for the following reasons; I specifically booked a game drive at feeding time only to hear on the game drive that they don't feed the animals on a Sunday. When I made the booking for the game drive...More

We had a wonderful experience when we stayed over at Buffelsfontein. The rooms were clean and neat with a true nature view and experience. The Game drive was interesting and great, friendly staff and the food was delicious. Would most certainly recommend.

Potentially this could be a nice lodge and I suspect with investment and hard work it will be in a few years. However it needs much doing to it to really attract tourists. Rooms were pretty cold and very basic. I didn’t expect luxury but...More

We went to visit the reserve for a game drive and unfortunately were less than impressed. The website prides itself on allowing you to see the big four..sadly that is not the case. You spend £60 for two people to be in a less than...More

if I knew they had all the predators caged, I wouldn’t go. They should state that on their website. Besides the drive around for 1h, everything was like a zoo. The “guide” didn’t talk much and just said the name of the animals, and we...More

Buffelsfontein is very small and quiet in comparison to Kruger, but that is one of the reasons we love it so much. No elephants, but sure you will see plenty in Kruger. Nowadays restaurants cater for many different dietry... More
