Description

While feeding our elephants you will experience them (Jabari, Malaika and Bulelo) up close and personal. You will find they may be huge, but are gentle as can be. You may feed them, touch them and take photos with them while our skilled elephant guides share their knowledge of these gentle giants with you. Afterwards they will even reward you with an elephant hug as a special goodbye.

Our 3 African Elephants are orphans from the Kruger National Park. Their parents were poached. We are fortunate that they ended up here at Buffelsdrift Game Lodge as they are true gentle giants and have great personalities. Elephants are very affectionate and caring animals. You will immediately experience this when visiting ours. You are welcome to ask our elephant guides as many questions as you like.

Good, but food not all well prepared. Our pork dish were very tuff and mash potatoes not mashed. Only salad good. Friendly service though. The other meals & drinks may be good.


Enjoyed the restaurant overlooking lake with hippos, bird and antelope grazing. Also stayed in luxurious tents a while ago. Excellent service. Recommended.

Extremely fun time! The staff and tour guides are super friendly! The safari was amazing and we saw a lot of different animals! On the safari they take you up to a mountain and give you are free drink! The tent/cabins were really cozy and comfy. We did the walk with the elephants! There were only us and two other people so we walked with them, feed them, got hugs, and watched these beautiful animals! A MUST DO!!!!!!

I came here twice both on day visits, once to the elephant walk, which is an absolutely amazing experience that I recommend to everyone. Secondly for a massage at their spa which was also lovely and very relaxing. The staff at Buffelsdrift are professional and accommodating which made the experiences all the better. I also ate at their restaurant for dinner which was pretty good and decently sized and priced. Everyone really enjoyed their meal and their outdoor seating overlooking the lake is the cherry on top. Overall a great game lodge with plenty to offer.
