Being only an hour from Cape Town and giving you the chance to see 3 of the Big 5, I was truly amazed. The game drive guide really ensures all the guests receive the best service and are friendly and knowledgeable in their field. Would highly recommend this Game Reserve to anyone.

If you don't have time to head to one of the big game reserves when in Cape Town, drive an hour out and find 3 of the Big 5 at Buffelsfontein. We had a great morning here and got to spot eland, gnu, zebra, the fantastic white rhino, lions, lynx, cheetah, giraffes etc. Pity we didn't get to see the... More

Excellent service and the best game drive with our ranger Willie who is extremely knowledgeable about all the game in the farm. We saw a lot of game including giraffe, rhino, buffalo, wildebeest, onyx, lion and cheetah. Willie organized the clay shooting which my son loved and also made sure we didn't miss the lion and cheetah feeding.

My girlfriend and I had such a great time at Buffelsfontein. Willy was the best host/ranger we could only ever imagine. The national park doesn't feature the big five, but that didn't bother us at all. We were more than happy to see giraffes, rhinos, ostriches, springboks any many more. Even though some animals (lions, lynx and a cheeta) are... More

Due to my work I have the privilege of staying at many game parks, but I have never experienced the service, quality of food, friendliness, professionalism and luxury accommodation at any of then as my wife and I experienced here. Willie was outstanding and everyone went out of their way to make our stay so unbelievable. I can wait to... More

Glorious views, perfect food and a very comfortable room. Saw the night feed and had a game drive the next morning when saw nearly all the animals, an amazing experience. The staff couldn't do enough for us. Just before dinner the owner's son came and told us to jump in the jeep - he took us off to see the... More

We chose Bufflesfontein because it was close to Capetown, but we discovered it was a fabulous place to spend the day. Our guide was personable and knowlegeable. He went out of his way to make sure we saw many of the game reserve animals. The cheetah and lynx were fantastic! We loved seeing the graceful giraffe! We had a lovely... More

Came here after a visit down the road to the San people cultural village !Khwa ttu which was also very informative and about five minutes south of the turn-off for Buffelsfontein. The ostrich seemed to be the welcome receptionist. We had reserved lunch and the room was very open as we were there in winter. The guide was quite personable... More

This is a lovely venue for a day outing or a week! The safari drives guarantee animal sightings. One can also view the lions and if you are lucky there may be cubs. Large swimming pool, clean comfortable rooms. The most scrumptious South African home cooked meals. Well worth a visit for the whole family.
