Buffalo Ridge Safari Lodge

Embark on a Majestic Safari Adventure at Buffalo Ridge Safari Lodge

With its foundations firmly planted in the inclining slopes of Madikwe Game Reserve’s Tweedepoort Ridge, Buffalo Ridge Safari Lodge offers magnificent views of the surrounding grassland and the ancient volcanic intrusions that dot the horizon. Buffalo Ridge Madikwe Game Reserve offers a authentic Big Five Safari experience.

Straddling the transition zone of Kalahari thornveld and Lowveld bushveld, the reserve encompasses a region of great biodiversity. Madikwe boasts the Big 5 along with an array of bird species and mammals including cheetah, spotted hyena and endangered wild dog. Guests can immerse themselves in their safari by enjoying stargazing, birding safaris and morning and evening game drives.

The lodge’s Suites have sliding doors from their bedroom and en-suite bathroom that lead onto a private viewing deck. The main lodge’s living areas include a dining room, lounge, upper and lower deck and a swimming pool. Buffalo Ridge is owned by the local Balete people and all staff are from the nearby Lekgophung village. Expect to enjoy engaging stories of local lore and sumptuous, locally-inspired (and locally-made) dinners around a crackling bonfire.

Embark on an adventure of a lifetime and book your stay at Buffalo Ridge Safari Lodge. Immerse yourself in the captivating beauty of the Madikwe Game Reserve.
