The ultimate weekend surf trip to the evergreen shoreline of the Garden Route!

Come spend your weekend in a surfer’s paradise, where the widest variety of waves imaginable surround Buffalo Bay, a settlement of beach houses located inside a protected nature reserve.

Located 20 kilometers from Knysna, in the Goukamma Nature Reserve on the Garden Route of South Africa, Buffalo Bay is a tranquil getaway with wide open beaches and unspoiled nature at your doorstep.

Surfing is our priority and the Garden Route is truly the best place to be a surfer, with little crowds and great waves for anyone, from beginner to advanced! Surf lessons are conducted by experienced and accredited surf instructors. Our approach to your surfing experience is based entirely on your level of experience and expectations.

And when you’re not surfing there are many other adventures to explore. Thrill seekers will be enchanted! Highlights include paragliding over incredible vistas, the world’s highest bridge bungee jump and the world’s longest zip-line over the ocean!

Your own private surf coach, a dedicated driver, individualized surf photo analysis, unlimited surf sessions and a variety of extra activities – this weekend getaway is the real deal!
