MEERKAT TOUR

Our Meerkat Safaris offer guests the opportunity to get up close to these little foraging mammals that inhabit the open, arid, semi-desert plains of Southern Africa.

And as we’re situated in the heart of the Klein Karoo, Buffelsdrift Game Lodge provides the ideal environment for these critters, known for their upright stance and sociable behaviour.  

Guests can enjoy a warm cup of coffee at the Lookout Lounge before heading for the Meerkat burrows in a safari vehicle. We head out at dawn to view these fascinating habituated creatures emerging from their burrows and catch the morning rays before embarking on their daily routine.

On the way, guests are usually lucky to also spot some of the 23 species of animals on the reserve. Once at the burrows, your skilled ranger will share some interesting facts about Meerkats and their behaviours throughout the experience.

LION FEEDING

A game vehicle will transport guests to our 5ha lion enclosure where they can view our three big cats, Shumba, Tonga and Safia, being fed by a trained game ranger.

Throughout the tour, your guide will inform you on some interesting facts and share his/her expert knowledge regarding these big cats. These 3 lions were born in captivity and can, therefore, never be returned to the wild.

They were relocated to Bufflesdrift Game Lodge in 2017 where a special erected camp provided them with a better suited environment and much more freedom of movement. Please note that these are wild lions and will not be touched or handled.

The duration of the lion viewing experience (approx. 1 – 2 hours) may vary depending on their behaviour.

BUSH SAFARI DRIVE

Buffelsdrift offers a unique South African bushveld experience in the heart of the Klein Karoo.

Join our skilled guides on an exciting and informative Bush Safari and learn more about our wide variety of animal, bird and plant species.

Guests are transported in open game viewing vehicles,providing unobstructed views of the unique Karoo vegetation and a wide range of animals including Hippo, Giraffe, Eland, Zebra, Buffalo and Springbok.

The duration of the safari is approximately 2 hours, with a refreshment break scheduled midway at a scenic lookout point with spectacular panoramic views of the veld and Swartberg Mountains.

ELEPHANT FEEDING

Meet our three beautiful elephants, Jabari, Malaika & Bulelo, who were rescued after being orphaned by poachers.

Experience these gentle giants — that have been reared with all the love and care possible — up close while our skilled elephant guides share their knowledge with you.

These animals are extremely caring and affectionate and will even reward you with a special elephant hug when it’s time to say goodbye.

This is a one-of-a-kind activity that promises to be a truly unique and unforgettable experience.
