About Buffalo Drift

Situated on the banks of the beautiful Berg River, Buffalo Drift offers couples a secluded getaway that’s both romantic and affordable.

There are four comfortably furnished tents with bunk- or double beds and en-suite bathrooms. Each tent has a private patio and a fully equipped kitchenette for all your self-catering needs.

Guests can spend their days lazing on their private stretch of the riverbank, or by taking a refreshing dip in the fresh water.

While waiting for an amazing sunset, enjoy a braai under the clear sky. Once the stars appear, guests can appreciate the quiet untouched beauty of nature while listening to the sounds of nocturnal life.

              The tent was great. Loved the view and the fact that there is a fence. Our doggy had a great time. The "warm" pool outside was a disappointment. The water was not clean and we did not use it. The braai area worked. There is little privacy between the tents. The aircon is also a great addition.

              We booked from the 5th till the 7th March. We arrived at 16h00 and where surprised to see how nice it was there. All went well till 18h00 when totally loud booming music came from the venue called the fort about 300m from our tent. This went on all night till 04h00 the next morning. At 10h00 it started again till 07h30 the next morning. We could not get away from the noise at all. The neighboring tents also came to chat to us about the music and agreed this was totally unacceptable as we where promised a quiet romantic getaway as per the website. We hardly slept the weekend as a tent cannot...

              It is nothing like the photos. We only stayed one night and checked into another place. Photos are photo shopped. Gardens around tents where you braai is not maintained. Wind was bad the one night we stayed and we couldn't sleep due to winds shaking the tent. Not luxury at all as advertised. Can't swim in the river to cool of on a hot summers day as it is full of spoils and u might get seriously hurt. No shops or even garage close buy to get nessecities. Just a bad disappointment overall.

              We loved our stay in the rented camp. Very comfortable bed. Has everything you need in the tent. Excellent value for money.

              We absolutely love this place. The air-conditioning was a very welcome add-on since our last visit. The only suggestion would be to add a small desk or table to work on inside the tent, as there isn't space to prepare food. An information leaflet with activities on the farm and around the area would also be very nice. We'll definitely see you again soon.
