Buffelsfontein Game & Nature reserve is situated on the R27 on the West Coast. It is less than an hour’s drive from Cape Town city centre and this makes it ideal for a quick get-away or day excursion. This once 1 600ha cattle farm came under ownership of Mr Paul Loubser in 1993 who realized the potential of the land to serve as a reserve and tourist destination. The infrastructure started changing over time with the introduction of a restaurant, bar and accommodation.

Only smaller animal species could also be introduced at this time because of the weak perimeter fencing. In the summer of 2000 Buffelsfontein had a huge set-back with a large destructive fire that destroyed almost everything on the then called cattle farm. This destruction included a high percentage of fencing, building structures, plant and animal life. In the following years Buffelsfontein cattle farm literally stood up from the ashes and transformed into the successful Game & Nature reserve it is today.

Camping:

The accommodation units are situated near waterholes where animals come to quench their thirst, so you can sit back and relax while having your own game viewing experience. We have a bush camp in the dunes. This is for the adventurous at heart that does not mind going back to basics. We supply the tents and the mattresses. There are 4 x showers each with own wash basin and hot running water, as well as 2 x flushing toilets.  Braai facilities available inside the camp. No electricity available.

4×4 Trails:

The 4 x 4 route is a must for the adventurous at heart. The route is situated in sand dunes and can be a surprisingly pleasant challenge for all 4 x 4 lovers.
