Buffelsfontein Game & Nature reserve is situated on the R27 on the West Coast.
It is less than an hour’s drive from Cape Town city centre and this makes it ideal for a quick get-away or day excursion.
This once 1 600ha cattle farm came under ownership of Mr Paul Loubser in 1993 who realized the potential of the land to serve as a reserve and tourist destination. The infrastructure started changing over time with the introduction of a restaurant, bar and accommodation. Only smaller animal species could also be introduced at this time because of the weak perimeter fencing.
In the summer of 2000 Buffelsfontein had a huge set-back with a large destructive fire that destroyed almost everything on the then called cattle farm. This destruction included a high percentage of fencing, building structures, plant and animal life.
In the following years Buffelsfontein cattle farm literally stood up from the ashes and transformed into the successful Game & Nature reserve it is today.
