Established in 1998 by the Vastapane family, Buffaloland is a privately owned game farm that is dedicated to preserving Africa’s natural legacy while ensuring an exclusive African experience. Located just a stone’s throw away from the Kruger National Park, Buffaloland is perfectly placed to discover the Big 5, while a number of unique attractions in the area offer a selection of unforgettable experiences. Of course, with an impressive array of wildlife in Buffaloland itself, staying close to home offers its own reward as you relax by the teeming watering holes or enjoy an exciting game drive.
Located on the Eastern border of the vast Buffaloland, Giraffe Camp offers a relaxed bushveld experience.
Comfortable, air-conditioned suites all have full en-suite bathrooms and kitchens, making it ideal for those wanting a self-catering option, while our wonderful staff will take care of the rest.
Overlooking a large central lawn shaded by majestic indigenous trees, the slow rhythm of Africa will enter your soul, encouraging you to do nothing more than relax by the pool or take a slow stroll down to the bird-hide at the edge of the dam for a unique opportunity to observe nature undetected.
Giraffe camp also features a large enclosed boma tucked away in the bush, where wooden canvas chairs are your front row seat to take in the beauty of the star-strewn sky in silence, or if you’re in the mood for something a bit more sociable, a large central camp fire draws you together and invites you to share your stories at the end of each day.
Each comfortable air-conditioned suite contains 2 single beds that can be made up together, a full en-suite bathroom with a bath and a shower, and a self-catering kitchenette with a microwave, mini-fridge, kettle, toaster, and cutlery and crockery.

Can stay if you are just passing. As there is nothing to do there. No activities. The pool is also dirty.

Zelma het ons baie tuis laat voel. Dennis het elke dag hout voordien. Louis was ons gids. Wildritte was lekker. Sal beslis weer Buffaloland besoek.
