Beautiful accommodation in a wonderful location with the friendliest hosts. We felt so relaxed and welcome here and were disappointed our stay was for only one night. We enjoyed being able to self cater in the well equipped kitchenette and eat our meal at our private outdoor dining area overlooking the Crocodile River and Kruger National Park. We enjoyed the...

We stayed at Bucklers Africa for 1 night with a familiy of 5. The two rooms provided were very spacious and a fully equipeed kitchen. The viwes on the crodile river was spectaular. We also booked breakfast, which was very compehensive. We only wished we had been asked before we deserved a cooked breakfast- this would have avoided some waste.... More

I stayed two nights at Buckler's Africa with my 12 years old son and it was a very nice time for us. It is a very special place! We had breakfast and we observed the wild animals like elephants in the Kruger Park at the same time. Especially at night time it was very fascinating to search the buffaloes and... More

I stayed at Buckler´s Africa lodge with my boyfriend and another 2 friends of ours. We decided on Buckler´s after reading reviews on Trip Advisor, and all the reviews were definitely spot on! We stayed 4 nights at Buckler´s and Kruger is definitely their back yard!! On arrival we were greeted by Kathryn who was very friendly and showed us... More

We spent one night at Bucklers on our way up to the Kruger Park from Durban. The location is pretty amazing, bordering right onto the Crocodile River and the park, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast was great. Unfortunately we did not use the pool as it was winter, although this would have been a welcome unwind... More

This is a quiet and relaxing place to stay overlooking the Kruger Park. The setting is beautiful and the cottage that we stayed in was luxurious. It was delightful to have breakfast on the porch looking out for animals on the other side of the fence. Children might find it boring as there are no activities for them and it... More

Fantastic and comfortable accommodation in "real" Africa. Very kindly personal. Beautiful place on the border of Kruger park. Excellent views of river and animals there. There are also unreal sunshines and sunsets.

Wonderful place with view on crocodile river and game in the evening, drinking from the river. Excellent romms and environment: Africa at it's best. Only minimal draw back: No own restaurant, but reachable in about 7km oder self catering
