Buffelshoek Tented Camp

★ ★ ★ ★

The Buffelshoek Tented Camp nestles in the pristine south-east region of the Manyeleti Game Reserve

Buffelshoek near the unfenced boundaries of the Kruger National Park and the Sabi Sand Private Nature Reserve. Wildlife, including the 'Big Five', roam freely between the game reserve and the national park providing guests with an unbeatable safari experience.

The camp is accessible by the self-drive for guests with their cars or rental cars. Transfers can be arranged from all surrounding airports to the camp as well as from Johannesburg, OR Tambo and Pretoria. Flights can be booked from Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban to the Hoedspruit (Eastgate Airport) as well as to Nelspruit (Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport KMIA).

The Buffelshoek lodge features five well-appointed tents with thatch roofs and canvas fronts. Each of the tents offers spacious en-suite bathrooms on wooden decks which make for a unique safari experience. The tents accommodate two guests sharing.

The lodge provides an unforgettable & authentic bush experience; this tented camp offers a natural balance between comfort and bushveld ambience. The camp has no fences making one feel at one with the natural beauty of the surroundings.

Furthermore, this tented camp is electricity-free with most meals being prepared over the open fire and enjoyed in the lantern-lit dining area or the boma. Sitting around the crackling campfire in the evenings and at night, one experiences the unique sounds of the African bush come alive.

The safari package includes thrilling morning and evening safari drives which are accompanied by a game ranger and conducted in open wildlife viewing vehicles.

During the Buffelshoek morning safari drives participants to experience the awakening of the bushveld while the late afternoon/evening safaris offer sightings of the elusive nocturnal animals with a spotlight being used to track predators.
