About Buffelshoek Dirosie 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 that 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. The Buffelshoek Dirosie Lodge gets its name by combining the two names Dirk and Rosie to “Dirosie” Lodge. Dirosie directly translated will sound much like “The small Rose”.
This new lodge is perfectly situated just outside the town Cradock far enough to give secluded privacy and quietness and near enough to quickly get something in town. With about 19km to Cradock you can get whatever you need.
Not only do we cater for the day to day traveler that requires accommodation in Cradock, the business owner planning a conference, a game enthusiasts that enjoy nature or the bride that wants to have her wedding surrounded by the beauty of the mountains, we also have a rich and unique history that 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. When you stand at her grave you'll only then be able to fully understand why out of all the places in the world she has lived and visited that 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.
