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.

What a beautiful place! We had a wonderful time just relaxing on the deck, and rowing in the canoe. We saw all kinds of wildlife and such a large variety of birds. The farm manager was very helpful and we felt very welcome. I would, however, suggest that you go there during fall and winter, as it was extremely hot during the day. Thanks again, can't wait for our next visit!!

We realy enjoyed our stay. No dull moment...fishing, swimming, kanooing, watching Waterbuffalo's being fed.

We loved the tranquility of the place and the natural surroundings. The tent was clean, spacious and comfortable. The activities on the farm itself are a bit limited (not sure if it was safe to swim in the river) but overall we had a very good time.

What a wonderful place...as you sit on your porch overlooking the amazing tress and river, you find yourself becoming more tranquil as the hours pass by. I recommend using the canoes that are provided and exploring the river...what amazing sights! I will be seeing you very soon!Thanks for the hospitality and for a break that was definitely needed!
