This spectacular lodge, built-in 2013 while maintaining the colonial architecture of the estate, sits beneath the majestic Willow Slopes cliffs and is surrounded by green lawns. It is the ideal place to relax when you are not going on safari. Please kindly note the Willowslopes lodge can only be accessed via a 4 x 4/ bakkie that can drive on that last gravel road with river dips. You can choose between 4 chalets, all with air conditioning and attached bathrooms. Alternatively, you can book the main house with two bedrooms for a family atmosphere.
At Buccara, we are most proud of the evening hours. Starting with a culinary experience that is compared to an event, with homemade products and freshly prepared meat, which is perfectly prepared and grilled by our chefs. Let yourself be pampered with handpicked wines, spirits, and cigars and experience the stories of a beautiful day under the stars in the Monkey Bar.
With its foundation dating back to 1774, this is surely one of the historical marvels of the Great Karoo area, if not South Africa.
Having 5 double rooms with attached bathrooms available, this is an ideal family vacation home with an “Out of Africa” movie-like atmosphere.
Slightly more modern than its historical neighbour, this lodge offers open living areas with a relaxed ambiance.
Walk out of the entertainment area, after a game of Snooker on our full-sized table dating back to 1911, and dive into the sparkling pool on a warm summers day. With 4 comfortable rooms to choose from, this Lodge will feel like your very own home in the middle of Africa.
You have the option to enjoy your own barbecue around the pool should you decide not to dine as usual from our delectable kitchen.

Surrounded by the Camdeboo National Park, Graaff-Reinet, the heart of the “Great Karoo” – Place of Thirst – is a boundless and mysterious area covered by vast livestock and game farms, where broad plains roll away to distant koppies and multilayered mountains that seem to touch the indigo sky.
Listen to the silence, breathe in the aged earth and the Karoo bossies (which conjure up the taste of Karoo lamb!), and gaze at a startlingly clear horizon that seems drawn at the other end of the earth. Our clear night skies are studded with countless stars and huge bright planets; even other galaxies are visible with the naked eye, offering some of the best star gazing in the world.
We invite you to experience the magic of this area, discover eccentric little hamlets, sprawling farmsteads, the historical town of Graaff-Reinet and the nearby villages of Aberdeen and Nieu Bethesda, populated by warm and welcoming people that love to share their stories and legends.Property Facilities:

We thoroughly enjoyed our one night at Buccara - a welcome layover on our journey from Jhb to the coast. The rooms and other amenities were very comfortable and modern - we didnt lack for anything. Being nestled in the surrounding hills one really got the impression of being "off the beaten track". Would highly recommend a stay at Bucarra for a few nights. Next time we may even stay for 2 nights.

Graaff Reinet Reviews
Old homes and churches. The national park was great.
Lovely site seeing. Valley of de Desolation.
Not much to do. Maybe go walking.
The scenery and beautiful historic buildings
How the people of Graaff-Reinet have made something good into a great Tourist town for everyone.
Such a wonderful place, steeped in historical and natural interest. Museums, National Park and nearby Owl House.
Picturesque town, Reinet House Museum is a great stop, dinner at Pioneers, Nieu Bethesda to see the Owl House is worth the drive.
Go for tour of Valley of Desolation.
The historical old buildings and residential houses.
