It was absolutely lovely. Thank you.
Spa tents are superb

One cannot fail to be impressed with this establishment. The luxury spa tents are superb - but for sure you need to stay more than one night to have the time to use them (which we sadly did not). It's great having the feeling of being in the bush, being so close to free roaming animals with nothing but an electric fence between you and them. And whatever you do, sample plenty of the Nyati JJJ.
Best food !

Good accommodation, both in tents and at lodge especially. Best food we had from at a Safari Lodge whilst in South Africa, especially the bri with Paul at the end of the walk. Jessica especially like the lunches, whilst I could eat Maria’s bread all day long. The fridge in the tent was a good idea, but it needed some drinks in, and cost of drinks would have been nice to know in advance.
Thank you to everyone at Buffalo Hills Game Reserve

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Buffalo Hills and learnt so much about the animals, conservation, and wicked liquers with strawberry and chilli! It was certainly the highlight of our stay in South Africa - though the whole holiday was fantastic. Now that we have visited a game reserve and seen the animals (particularly the rhino family) at close quarters we will be following events with close interest and are already glued to any television programme about wildlife in Africa! Your guides were so informative and interesting - it's not often that I get up early in the morning to admire trees in the forest! All the staff were welcoming. It was certainly more personal and friendly than it would have been on a larger reserve, and everyone's concern for the protection and preservation of the animals was plain to see. I'm just reading about your other activities and already hoping to come back and spend more time with you. Thank you!
Family friendly

The rangers and hosts were most welcoming. Introducing themselves by using their first names. Very child friendly. Excellent food served, although the options for the evening food supplied for the children was limited in quantity. My son could have easily eaten several of their lovely sausages! Superb accommodation. Money well spent.
Perfect holiday destination.

The standard of the accomodation, the friendly staff and the setting of this lovely Game Reserve make it a place not to miss on your trip to South Africa. The safari drive was fantastic followed by a great BBQ. The walk in the morning was superb and our guide was very informative and funny. The view at breakfast was the best ever. Go there!!!
Fantastic Stay

great value for money
mary baxter, n. ireland - 04 August 2005
Me and my 2 small children stayed in a cottage at the hills, end of June. The evening drive is briiliant as the sun sets and the animals are moving to settle for the night and the monring one is quite unnerving on foot. The accomodation and level of service is great and would definitley recommend tourists to include Buffalo Hills in their itineraries for the Garden Route.
