Situated on the banks of the beautiful Berg River, Buffalo Drift offers couples a secluded getaway thats 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.

"We absolutely love this place. The air-conditioning was a very welcome add-on since our last visit. The only suggestion would be to add a small desk or table to work on inside the tent, as there isn't space to prepare food. An information leaflet with activities on the farm and around the area would also be very nice. We'll definitely see you again soon."
"Great, relaxing stay"

"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 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!"
"The absolute peace and quiet of the surround"

"Loved everything about the concept of Luxury Tent Camp except for a few niggly irritations eg no Egg Lifter in the Kitchen. The water bottle left on the kitchen Zinc too heavy for anybody (age 70 and 73) to lift off. The way it was you couldn't get a glass underneath to fill with water. It should stand on its own table and not on the only bit of working surface. No bowls should you want to make a salad."
"Best Glamping Experience"

By Megan Gelderbloem
"Where do I start?! This was my first Glamping experience and my word I will never go back to roughing it out! My partner and I went for my Birthday and it is exactly if not better than what I had anticipated.The farm is absolutely breathtaking, the tented camp is situated right on the river's edge - so you have views all day/night and is well equipped with everything that you would need and pet friendly! Although the mozzies are out in full force at night - so best come prepped for that (after all you are in their land).There is so much room for activities in this place - you can take out the canoe and go down the river, fishing if you into that kind of thing, clay pigeon shooting, take a leisurely walk around the naartjie plantation, the wildlife on the farm was nice addition too, some Zebra's, Wildebeest and of course some BUFFALO just chilling it out...We met Hannes who is the Farm Manager and had a lovely chat about the farm, from the Add to dictionary they growing to what fish is in the dam. I will definitely be back with my family and recommend this place to any one looking for a nature loving experience!"
