We stayed here as a late minute alternative. Wow, we were on a two week safari of Tanzania and this Kenya and this was in my top 2 places we stayed. The manager Wayne and his wife were very friendly. The staff were incredible. Nothing was too much trouble. Accomodation beautiful. Not to mention heating the elephants trumpeting and eating... More

Outstanding location, food, staff, and accommodations! This is the perfect launching spot to safari the Serengeti. The night safari, offered by the the lodge, was a very different experience where we saw Leopard, servile, and many other nocturnal animals. The Tents are very comfortable with toilet, shower, vanity and a comfortable bed. This is a high end, five star, luxury... More

It is a somewhat bumpy journey from Lobo airfield, but worth every jolt. On your way you see a great variety of wildlife, and as you approach the hills you actually pass through Masai lands and see their bomas, herds and flocks. Reception was very welcoming. The main buildings house expansive sitting and dining areas, looking across a swimming pool... More

Great location, hilly terrain with just too many stairs. Everything was very nice, however, if not for that I would rate this place a 5. Hippos at night could be loud. Great food, dining location, views, drinks. Very nice staff. Just hate the stairs. NOT handicap accessible. Oh, and the door stops bolted into the floor that took a bite... More

A wonderful camp and very exclusive. We arrived in Buffalo to find we were the only guests for the 3 nights. The service was second to none, with the team of two guides, plus Melau and his team making us so very welcome. We had great game drives, a bush walk, a night drive (and were challenged by a bull...

We stayed here as part of a high end safari organized by Abercrombie and Kent. The accommodation was comfortable and the staff was helpful in adding more vegetable courses to the menu when we requested. The safari guides were skilled at locating animals.

What a beautiful place this was. I took a group there in November 2015. Upon arrival, oohs and ahhhhs from everyone.

We recently had three ideal days in the camp. It was the holiday of a lifetime. The food was scrumptious and accommodation luxurious. Highlights included a day's trip to the Mara river where we witnessed wildebeest and zebra crossing as part of the migration!

An amazing, pampered experience. Power is run by generator (which is only on certain hours) and solar so there are lights in the rooms 24/7. Also the outlets work 24/7 for charging electronics.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An essential stopover on any extraordinary safari experience is Buffalo Luxury Camp which is located close by Kleins Gate on the edge of the Serengeti National Park. Buffalo Luxury Camp is a permanent tented camp consisting of 15 tents, each of which is equipped with a lounge, raised bedroom area and bathroom with soaking tub, separate shower, constant hot and cold running water and electricity. The main camp building is built on three levels to include a lounge area, a separate lounge bar and a fine dining area. The terrace enjoys magnificent views over the surrounding landscape and the Serengeti National Park. However, Buffalo Luxury Camp provides much more than luxurious accommodation. It provides guests with an opportunity to participate in game walks, night game drives, bush sun downer cocktails and bush dinners all of which activities are not commonly found on the Northern Safari circuit. Balloon Safaris are also available nearby. ... more   less
