During the cold winter months a huge fireplace offers a cosy alternative and as accompaniment, our wine selection consists of some of the best award-winning wines on Route 62. Guests can make reservations for our Buffet Breakfast from 07:00 - 11:00 and for Lunch and Dinner from our A la Carte Menu from 11:00 - 22:00. With all the zesty products, facilities and amenities under one roof, Buffelsdrift Game Lodge is the ideal choice for all corporate functions, events, weddings, celebrations, seminars & team building. It also has a grand piano as prominent feature. A unique bush veld experience in the heart of the Klein Karoo.

Very relaxing and nice views from the restaurant as well as the chalets. Food is also good! Close to Oudtshoorn. Worth a visit!

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

I just went for a cup of tea and cake looking out over the dam. A pretty place, worth the trip out of town to see. Huge carp in the dam and (apparently) hippo too, but I didn't see any. But the overall feel is great and the mountains shimmer in the distance.

“Must see lodge and restuarant”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

This place was the highlight of our visit to Oudtshoorn. Definitely worth a visit. Try to stay over if you can. The evening dinner is filled with live natural entertainment.

“Beautiful setting!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We wished we had made the effort to arrive before it was dark as what little we could see suggested this restaurant was in a beautiful setting overlooking a lake. Dinner was good, servings generous and the atmosphere very nice. We could have sat outside but it had started to rain so ended up inside.
