“Awsome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

We stayed at the self catering cottage, which is simple but comfortable. The viewing of game was amazing, there was such abundance. The best is to see the bucks, zebras and ostriches roaming at really close distance at night - pure magic!

The staff is extremely friendly and helpful: things as simple as introducing themselves and shaking hands shows true gentleman's manners.

Will definitely stay there again, and highly recommend that you do too!!!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2008

We absolutely loved Bufflesfontein! The luxury cottages are amazing, so well done - huge places with leather sofas, huge beds, welcome pack which includes local wine. Excellent views over the natural spring/watering hole, wildlife wandering around, fab food. We booked in as all inclusive so we got 3 meals a day and a game drive and it really was great value. Also if you are lucky you will meet Daniel, who we found absolutely fascinating, his knowledge of wildlife and his tracking skills are second to none, we were sad to leave.

They also have an amazing building which they use for parties and weddings, and I can't imagine anything better - if I lived in SA thats where I would go!
