Double or twin beds are available and the tents are air conditioned.

Game drives at Buffelsdrift Game Lodge are conducted in specially adapted safari vehicles with open sides for a clear view of the animals, birds, plants and views that your wonderful safari guide will show you. Traverse the private grounds looking for elephant, giraffe, zebra, white rhino, buffalo. wildebeest and several small antelope and plains species. You won't find predators or malaria here making it a safe family safari and there are over 200 birds to discover in acre after acre of beautiful African bush.

The large restaurant has an a la carte menu and a wine list showcasing the wine farms along Route 62. Spilling onto the deck, on clear nights you can enjoy a starlit dinner and the large log fire will be welcome on wintry nights.

Surval Boutique Olive Estate

Close your eyes and imagine blue skies, manicured lawns and a country side manor overlooking orchards and a backdrop of mountains. And well, you’re on the doorstep of the elegant and sophisticated Surval Boutique Olive Estate in Oudtshoorn.

De Denne Guest House

Cadbury’s got his eye on you. And it’s a big one. He’s got the largest peeper of any land animal. And Suzie’s his missus so watch your step. Johan and Louise Keller are billed as the owners but what’s the bet their resident counterparts are the real deal here? This is a working farm. An ostrich one. Cadbury and Suzie are great, big, flightless birds. And probably top dogs.
