We had an amazing sunset drink and excellent meal on the deck. Our waiter, Anthony, was great and helped make the evening even more memorable.

This is a great game lodge not far from Oudtshoorn. I did two safari drives with the lodge and the animals were magnificent. Very cool setting for a game lodge and excellent bar and restaurant over looking the dam.

Recommended by our guest house owner we had a great dinner out at the Buffelsdrift Game Lodge Restaurant just a few minutes out of Oudtshoorn. Located on a private game farm you can sit outside (inside also possible of course) and watch the hippos splash about in the beautiful lake right by the restaurant. So entertaining to watch :). The food is of excellent quality and there is plenty of it. If you're really hungry you should consider that double burger, it's huge. The service is lovely. Definitely try to be there before sunset so you can watch the sun go down whilst having a delicious drink.

The setting was lovely, although it was dark we could still appreciate the ambiance. There are hippos swimming outside in the lake. The restaurant was obviously very popular and was full of people. Our starter, main courses and puddings were excellent. We left feeling we had really had good value for money. The wine selection was good too. Thoroughly enjoyable evening.
