Buffalo Ridge

Set in an area known as the Tweedepoort Ridge, Buffalo Ridge Safari Lodge overlooks an extraordinary landscape characterized by wide-open plains, thorny scrublands and undulating volcanic intrusions known as inselbergs. Safari aficionados and naturalists have deemed Buffalo Ridge a prime area for game viewing.

Lion, leopard, wild dog and cheetah prowl the lands, following herds of springbok, buffalo, wildebeest, kudu and giraffe. Watching over them at Buffalo Ridge elephant and rhino, hundreds of bird species and the more elusive creatures that inhabit the bush.

Architecturally, Buffalo Ridge is split into two sections, each situated on a hill and separated by a plunging ravine. One side is given over to eight thatched chalet-style suites that constitute your accommodation. Natural hues and textures echo those found outside, and no expense has been spared to ensure superior comfort and style.
The main lodge, on its own hillside site, is accessed by guests via a wooden walkway.  Here you will find an inviting pool, dining facilities, as well as several 'living areas' - each with its own tranquil atmosphere, unique decorative charm and breathtaking views.

Rest assured that you will be well fed for your twice-daily game viewing explorations as the food at Buffalo Ridge is both copious and, as the many enthusiastic guestbook entries will attest to, delicious. Said explorations take place in open 4X4 vehicles with well-informed rangers. A guided walking tour is also not to be missed for the ultimate in heart-thumping excitement. Like Thakadu River Lodge, this lodge is owned by a local community, the Balete, and operated in conjunction with the highly experienced, high-end Madikwe Collection group. (It too has been certified by Fair Trade in Tourism South Africa.)

Every detail at Buffalo Ridge Safari Lodge has been orchestrated with care to ensure you the consummate South African safari experience.
