Located in the Eastern Cape, South Africa Bellevue Forest Reserve is the ideal break away into the wild to forget about the everyday hustle and bustle. Accommodating families with children, honeymoon-couples and young travelers we have exactly the ADVENTURE for you. With its origins emerging from a time long forgotten and being born from an old railway village and farm land, has now over time become a private game reserve of vast natural beauty. Set inside this 2500m² reserve of indigenous bush-veld are our two unique Lodges.


Experience the African safari like never with our Buffalo Encounters, a behind the scenes, curtains open excursion that won’t be found around just any corner. Here a maximum of 10 guests get to be part of a 4x4 vehicle drive, facilitated by a Game Ranger and view from up close as Buffalos are fed and monitored daily. Based on a section of our 2,500-hectare private nature reserve in the Greater Addo region, this is an experience like no other, giving you a glimpse into the natural habitat of these amazing species as you ride through the Buffalo Camp of the nature reserve. The morning breeze makes this trip more amazing, departing our lodge at (07h30) daily after a morning coffee and lasts between 45 – 60 minutes, followed by a scrumptious breakfast at our Eagles Nest Lookout Lounge.
