Die plaas waarop die kothuis is, is beeldskoon. Ons het lekker gebly en sal enige tyd weer terug gaan. Dankie vir ‘n lekker naweek.

Die huisie waarin ons gebly het was baie skoon en netjies. Dit is een van die beste selfsorgplekke waar ek al gebly het. Ons het baie lekker gebly en gekuier. Die Buffalo Hills personeel was baie behulpsaam en vriendelik.

Wonderful stay.

If this isn’t on your bucket list, it should be. Live in secluded luxury surrounded by magnificent views.

We had a fabulous stay. Will definitely recommend to others. Harrismith was about 20 km away from tarred road, there was a Checkers and Spar also restaurants there.

Will definitely recommend to others. Nice place to relax away from the hustle and bustle. We took a 4×4 ride alongside the nature reserve, we saw plenty of buffalos, ostriches, baboons etc.
