Buffelsfontein Game and Nature Reserve

Buffelsfontein Game and Nature Reserve



Situated on the R27 in the heart of the West Coast, you will find the private game and nature reserve, Buffelsfontein. Buffelsfontein is dripping with magnificent wildlife and superb South African scenery. The reserve is a tranquil setting and the perfect destination for a break-away to revive and relax. It offers a variety of facilities that are surrounded by the beautiful natural scenery of the West Coast. Being less than 60 minutes' drive from Cape Town city centre makes it ideal for a quick get-away or day excursion.

The reserve which started out as a 1600 hectare cattle farm was bought by Mr Paul Loubser in 1993. Loubser realized the potential of the land to serve as a reserve and tourist destination and over time the infrastructure started to change with the introduction of a restaurant, bar and accommodation. Because of the weak perimeter fencing at this time, only smaller animal species could also be introduced. But this was all threatened in the summer of 2000 when the farm had a huge setback. A large fire destroyed almost everything on the cattle farm. This destruction included a high percentage of fencing, building structures, plant and animal life. But in the years that followed Buffelsfontein cattle farm rose from the ashes like a phoenix and was transformed into what we now know as the Buffelsfontein Game and Nature reserve.

Buffelsfontein offers visitors the opportunity to experience the wonders of nature on their game drives. The game drives are usually conducted every day 09:00 and 14:00. The reserves rangers promise to take guests on a memorable trip, showing them more about nature and its secrets. Some of the wildlife that visitors could expect to see on a game drive include: Lion Cheetah Rhino Buffalo Giraffe Zebra Blue Wildebeest Red Hartebeest Kudu, Eland Oryx (Gemsbok) Bontebok Springbok Duiker Steenbok Caracal There are however some species which are in the reserve but that are rarely seen on game drives, these include: African Wildcat Bat-eared fox Cape fox Genet Grey buck Mountain Reedbuck Porcupine Aardvark Aardwolf Honey Badger For those who are basing themselves in the Cape Town area, the reserve also offers day trips departing from pre-arranged locations around the City centre, Waterfront and Atlantic seaboard areas. The Day Trip Safari includes the transportation to and from Buffelsfontein, breakfast on arrival, game drive with refreshments and lunch (A la Carte or buffet).

Visitors are always welcomed with true West Coast hospitality.
