Buffalo Range Airport was developed from an airstrip formerly owned by the Styles family who were operating as Buffalo Range Pvt Ltd which was into cattle ranching and cane farming. They donated their piece of land to the government for the construction of the airport which was then commissioned in 1965 to cater for the Mauritian communities working in the sugar estates who used to travel back home to Port Louis via the then Salisbury Airport (Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport). Scheduled air services were introduced between Harare and Chiredzi via Masvingo using some Viscounts aircraft on that lucrative route. Additional scheduled charter flights were made available during the beginning and closing of schools to cater for the school children from Triangle, Mkwasine, Hippo Valley Estates and the surrounding game ranches in the South Eastern Lowveld. International flights were later introduced when customs and immigration were made available.
Situated in the South Eastern Lowveld of Zimbabwe, Buffalo Range Airport always gives its guests a warm welcome in terms of natural hospitality and climatic conditions. The airport is centrally located between the two sugar towns that are Triangle and Chiredzi which are thirty kilometres (30km) apart. Buffalo Range Airport is the gateway to the three main conservancies that are located in the South Eastern Lowveld namely Save Valley, Malilangwe and Bubiana. The airport also provides access to the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park which brings together some of the richest and most established wildlife areas in Zimbabwe (Gonarezhou), Mozambique (Limpopo National Park) and South Africa (Kruger National Park). In addition, the airport provides access to Green Fuels at Chisumbanje and the recently commissioned giant Tokwe Mukosi Dam.

Buffalo Range Airport runway is 1578 metres long and 30 metres wide with a capacity to accommodate aircraft up to the size of a Boeing 737-700 executive series. The airport operates from 07:00 to 17:00 hours local time.
