About Buffelshoek Dirosie Game Lodge

Buffelshoek is a farm with unique wildlife and a rich history.
Buffelshoek, if directly translated, would be buffalo's corner. Surrounded by a mountain range with the same types of mountains that form part of the Mountain Zebra national park, which is to the Northwest of the Buffelshoek Farm.
The owners of this farm, Dirk and Rosie Visser, are well-known people in the Cradock district with Dirk Visser involved in the Cradock Seed “Wil jy Saai” business. Buffelshoek Dirosie Lodge gets its name by combining the two names Dirk and Rosie to “Dirosie” - Dirosie directly translated will sound much like “The small Rose”.
This farm-stay style lodge is perfectly situated about 19km outside the town Cradock. Far enough to give secluded privacy and quietness, and near enough to quickly "get something in town".
Not only do we cater for the day to day traveler, the business owner planning a conference, a game enthusiast who enjoys nature or the bride who wants to have her wedding surrounded by the beauty of the mountains, but we also have a rich and unique history which is studied by historians locally and even internationally.
Yes, it is also the farm where the well-known, controversial and influential person Olive Schreiner chose to make her final resting place. This spot, chosen by her, is so high up in the mountain that it took a year and a half to build a road to get there. Only when you stand at her grave will you be able to fully understand why, out of all the places in the world she has lived and visited, she chose this spot to be laid to rest. You'll have the opportunity to understand and absorb the vast space and to take in the beauty of the area with its panoramic views. Come and experience a farm-stay visit at Buffelshoek Dirosie Lodge and see how it has the ability to change you in its own special way.

                      Frankly we were very disappointed with our stay. Admittedly we arrived after dark and Cecil gave us a lot of assistance in finding the place. Signage is not easy to see in the dark. But it was a cold night and there was no provision of heating for the large Kudu room with grey painted floors. We ended up using the duvet from a second bed to get warm. Bedside light not connected and generally pretty basic accommodation. No firewood provided for the indoor braai. Not what we were led to believe from their website.Yes we should have arranged for breakfasts when we booked but there was no sympathy...
