We had a wonderful time here... Every thing was wonderful... Our ranger was great, staff so helpful and the manager went out of her way to ensure that my allergies were taken into account in our meals... The lunches were a little lacking in choice but the dinners certainly made up for that... We had stayed at the southern camp... More

Staff is very friendly and Jeffrey and Claire are outstanding. Food is too much, too often and too good (they feed you 7 times a day). This is the most luxurious “tent” I have ever seen. Everything runs smooth and hassle free. It is not very cheap, but certainly was money very well spent, anyway is much cheaper than other... More

This was my second trip to Buffalo Camp and I was not disappointed. The staff at Buffalo Camp is the best! Claire is helpful and always greets with a smile. Our ranger, Almero, loves the animals and wants all guests to get the most of their experience on game drive. The rest of the staff is friendly, helpful and always... More
