Buffalo Drift offers a variety of accommodation and events venues, situated either on the farm just outside Tulbagh or in the lovely town of Yzerfontein.

Buffalo Drift has three spots to explore on its farm location:

Buffalo Drift is known for its spectacular “Fort”, situated on Ruigtevlei Farm, near Tulbagh on the banks of the lush Berg River. This Fort has been home to many successful bachelor parties.

The River Cottage is a recently built facility, suited to smaller groups of up to 18 people, ideal for students or bachelors looking to have a good time.

Our Luxury Tents offer the perfect romantic getaway for couples who want to get all loved up.

Buffalo Drift also offers two locations in Yzerfontein:

The Captain’s Cabin is found nestled on a nature reserve with spectacular views of the Atlantic shoreline. Enjoy the seclusion that this private beach has to offer or venture off to Die Stal Pub for some fun.

Situated in the heart of Yzerfontein, you will find a luxury 9 sleeper house called 18 First Avenue. Kitted out with en suite bathrooms, large entertainment areas, inside and outside braai areas and a short walk to the beach and shops.

Weddings and special events:

Our farm location also offers a fuss-free wedding package that allows you the freedom to have your dream wedding. Keep it simple or add what you wish to make your day unforgettable.

If young at heart and out to find some fun, be sure not to miss any of the music festivals that take place on the farm during the warmer months. River Fest and Jungala are not to be missed!
