No. Buddhists believe in rebirth. Reincarnation is the passage of the soul from one for to another, there is no soul in Buddhism; rebirth is the result of karmic seeds sown in life.

They believe that there is a circle of birth and if you earn enlightenment the you are taken out of the circle of birth
