Buffalo Ridge Safari Lodge is situated in the Madikwe Game Reserve, one of the few malaria-free reserves in southern Africa. The Reserve is located in South Africa along the Botswana border, twenty kilometres from Gaberone and lies within a transition region between lowveld bushveld and the Kalahari thornveld. Consequently, the region hosts an incredible diversity of species from both eco-systems. Geographically, the region has enormous volcanic intrusions known as Inselbergs, which are prominent throughout and create a spectacular backdrop to the reserve. Buffalo Ridge Safari Lodge is the first wholly-owned, Community-based Safari Lodge to be developed in South Africa. The lodge is an eco-tourism partnership between North-West Parks and the Balete Ba Lekgophung Community. The community has a 45-year lease to operate a commercial lodge with traversing rights across the reserve. The concept is unique in South Africa as the community owns the lodge, with substantial benefits accruing back to the community itself.
Spectacular sightings with lots of fun and luxury.
