Buffalo Encounters Experience

  • About 1 hour


Experience the African safari like never before with our Buffalo encounters. A behind the scenes, curtains open excursion that won’t be found around just any corner.

Based on a section of our 2,500-hectare private nature reserve in the greater Addo region, this is an experience like no other, giving you a glimpse into the natural habitat of these amazing species as you ride through the Buffalo camp of the nature reserve. A maximum of 10 guests are accompanied by a highly experienced FGASA trained, armed trails guide on a 4x4 vehicle through the Buffalo camp of the game reserve.

Early morning drives depart our lodge at 07h30 daily after a morning coffee and last between 45 – 60 minutes followed by a scrumptious breakfast at our Eagles Nest Lookout Lounge.

Afternoon tours leave camp after high tea 15h30 and last approximately 45 minutes whereafter guests are entertained in the bush for sundowner drinks and snacks before ending the day at Olifantskop Lodge again.

I brought a group there for the giraffe walk game drive and we experienced more than we could imagine. Family atmosphere, beautiful panorama, lovely food, service and company. Bellevue does go the extra mile for its guests. Top!!!

We enjoyed 3 wonderful days on the Bellevue property. We were met by Braun and Loot who welcomed us and immediately fed us a delicious dinner. The rooms were pristine, nicely decorated and very comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and relaxing. It's a family friendly environment. The staff is so friendly and top notch. The safari escorted by Steven was also fantastic. We appreciated the wonderful opportunity to stay at Bellevue Lodge and go on safari. Lots of Love to Bellevue ❤️

Just back from 3 wonderful days at Bellevue Forest Reserve. What a great place to stay, what a service, and what an excellent support from Loodt, Stephan , Lorraine and others. Very reasonable prized, certainly as compared to other lodges in the area. Wonderful trip to Scotia and Addo park included. Simply , we had a great time and I warmly recommend this resort
