My hubby and myself spent 3 amazing nights of our honeymoon at Buffelsdrift and I couldn't be more satsisfied about deciding to stay there!
Everyone is so friendly, helpful and makes you feel comfortable. We stayed on the 2 night package and 1 night B&B only.
Boy, what a mistake it was to order a meal for each of us! I barely touched my delicious kudu burger as the chips and salad was a meal by itself, never mind the massive burger staring me in the eye! Most definitely the best food I've tasted in a very long time, and the pudding was TO DIE FOR. . . . . . . a cocktail on their deck overlooking the river and hippos and absolutely beautiful mountain scenery, what more can you ask for!
The excursions, the game drives and the overall experience could not be perfected in any way! The weather was perfect and the evenings were cold, but just more reason to snuggle up and stay cozy while listening to the hippos in the distance.
My highlight of the trip was the elephant feeding. What a great excursion to include in a package, and so amazing to be so close to such a wonderful animal. To me, that most definitely made our last day there worth every second!
Absolutely amazing and I would most definitely try my best to go back there for our anniversaries!
A big thanks to each and everyone that we had contact with.
