The 10 spacious suites that comprise Buffalo Camp are set on stilted wooden decks built on an elevated riverbank. Wooden walkways connect the suites to each other and the main lodge area. Buffalo Camp is set among tall shady trees, with a seasonal river below. In the dry season, antelope use the river course as a natural pathway to search for grazing. Buffalo Camp’s suites are ultra-luxurious tents that evoke the feeling of old Africa. Each en-suite tent can accommodate two people, in either a double or twin beds dressed in white cotton linen and African design throws. There’s air conditioning for summer and heated underblankets to keep the cold at bay on winter nights. Everything and more than you’d expect in a luxury safari lodge is here – including a well-stocked minibar, Nespresso coffee machine and lock-up safe. Wooden floors, leather and dark wood finishes give the tents a nostalgic air. At night, oil lanterns illuminate the walkways to create subtle light and ambience. Just 20 guests can be accommodated at Buffalo Camp, and the focus is on personal attention, superb service and complete comfort.

Lounge & Pool

The communal areas of Buffalo Camp are also built on the riverbank, and are surrounded by wild gardens of aloe and euphorbia. An intimate lounge nestles under a vaulted thatched roof with ceiling fans, which create a welcome breeze in summer. It’s the perfect place to sink into a comfortable sofa and bird watch, while enjoying refreshments from the Buffalo Bar. To cool off at Buffalo Camp, slip into the sleek, elevated rim-flow pool with views directly into the forest canopy. Then sun-dry on the loungers before taking a lazy nap in the shade under a wide canvas umbrella.

Dining

The olde worlde-Africa atmosphere is carried through to meals, which are à la carte. Breakfast and lunch are served under a canopy of thatch, while dinner is usually enjoyed in the rustic outdoor boma, around a roaring open fire (depending on the weather, dinner may also be served indoors). This is true African-style dining in a luxury safari lodge setting, with the roar of lions and the calls of jackals and hyenas as natural background music.
