Beautiful views in Lakefront Tent
Buffelsdrift is situated in a beautiful location, with amazing views of the lake and surrounding mountains visible from the restaurant and the tent rooms. The tent accommodations were the highlight; an outdoorsy feel yet quite clean inside and with amenities (like a heated bed and wi-fi). Waterfront tents have docks and lounge chairs over the water that make for a relaxing evening watching the sunset. The food at the on-site restaurant was average in quality and price. The only downfall of the stay was the pricey "transfers" offered by the property to surrounding locations only a few miles away, making it difficult/expensive for us to go places as we didn't have a car. The property also offers game drives and elephant rides, but if looking for an authentic game experience be advised they have no cats in the reserve and the rangers perform multiple roles (so they aren't soley focused on/dedicated to safaris). Overall, it's a beautiful property and the tent accommodations are awesome - worth a stop if traveling to/near Oudtshoorn.

Disappointing at Buffalos Drift
Had to wait 30 mins to be checked in by a student(not her fault) and then a further 15 for our luggage to be transported to our tent which was ripped. Food also disappointing. The location however was amazing. Lagoon side tent with hippos and birds. The game drive we felt was rather contrived, tracking rhinos which we found in a clearing and had been fed hay there.

Unexpected beautiful bush weekend
Buffelsdrift is a beautifully appoointed gem close to the Karoo town, Oudtshoorn. An unexpected spoil with the most enjoyable luxury tent accommodation, friendly and responsive staff, great food and restaurant. Game drives to view a variety of game (no lions or big cats), meerkat visit and a spa.

'African' experience with a touch of luxury
Stunning location overlooking a dam with a view to the north of the Swartberg Mountains. Buck and hippos and an abundance of (noisy) wildfowl. 'Room' is a spacious luxury tent with an 'out of Africa' feel, very comfortable bed and a separate bathroom. However, being a tent, it is hot during the day and colder at night - although the air conditioner helps a little. Dining area with dinner and breakfast built on stilts over the dam - lovely sundowner location with good food and reasonable service. Game drives cost extra - but worth it for the guide information. All in all a great stay - and would recommend this particularly to vistors to South Africa who want an 'African' experience with more than a touch of luxury

Fair2.0 / 5
Very loud
The hotel is nice for everybody who loves nature. Animals like the Hippos and birds are quite loud during the night which can cause some sleepless hours during the night. Most disappointing was the level of service and the professional acting of the hotel manager who was unwilling to deal with the extreme noise pollution in the morning coming from the restaurant in the early morning. It remembered me more of a place in Manhatten than in the middle of the nature. Overall quite disappointing and there are better places to stay in this area for a better value for money ratio.
