The lodge is very well located, with the view over a waterhole where elephants, kudus, bucks come to drink. Ranger was very knowledgeable and really made a difference in the game viewing experience.
The staff and service were very poor. The bill was a complete mess. Most of the food was very average, except for one dish that was really 5 star.
Rooms are large and clean, beds are gigantic!
One of the cleaning ladies forgot to close the window of one of the rooms, the baboons took over and made a mess of the room, stealing whatever was available.
On one of the evening drives, we had a flat tire; couldn't jack the car up, the jack was broken, we had to wait for the other vehicle of the lodge. Guy came gave us the jack and left, telling us there were buffalo's around. Spare tire was also flat, new jack wouldn't go down. We had to call for a third car from another lodge to come and help. Last game drive in the morning was very short as our ranger had to bring the spare wheel to the lodge that helped us.
We go on a safari at least twice a year and won't go back to Buffalo Ridge.
