Throughout history, man has followed the wings of migratory birds and tracked the hoof-prints of animals to arrive at secret places of plentiful nourishment, relaxation, peace and beauty. The initial journey is often the beginning of a long and respectful relationship between land and culture, flora and fauna, to live in harmony the way nature intended us to.

It is a journey such as this that in 1774 led to ‘Clifton Estate’ being established, and throughout the centuries this special relationship grew and prospered to become the Buccara Wildlife Reserve Karoo.

While the Buccara brand name is relatively new, it’s derived from centuries-old journal notes of Marco Polo the Adventurer, as well is the traditional indigenous African name for a “gentleman”. A badge of honor, pride and respect for any person that desires to experience life’s adventures in quality and style.

At Buccara Wildlife Reserve Karoo, they’re proud to honor this tradition. It’s a place where healthy living, peaceful coexistence with the land and indigenous culture, wildlife conservation, ecological awareness, and a quality of life is preserved by its team to be shared with and enjoyed by all of their guests.

Situated in Graaff-Reinet, Buccara’s ‘Clifton Estates’ makes for a great and affordable inclusion into your adventure diary. With the opportunity to track all plains’ game, giraffe and buffalo on foot and with their ranger close at hand, you’ll be amazed at how quickly you start noticing things you’d never picked up before. You’ll be sure to develop a new appreciation for the wonder of the reserve’s wild surrounds and the magnificence of a setting sun over the stark Karoo landscape.
