We visited in April and arranged to have our wedding there on 16th November. The whole slick operation went into overdrive that transformed the place into one special venue....
The heavens had opened the night before and there was real worry that things might have to get changed..... until in walked Beadri (manager of the lodge) with an Irish Coffee to soothe the bride to be nerves.... Everything ran like clockwork....
The food was excellent, the venue clean. The staff are all very friendly and I have never seen a miserable face whenever I have been there. Buffelsdrift are so accommodating that no request is too much..... they even arranged that we could have our photo taken with the elephants....
Thank you so much Beadri and your team on the day. I hope you get lots of bookings and are blessed with many, many years of good fortune.
