Great value for money- you can see buffaloes crossing the river or elephants and more. Even worth to stay 2 or 3 nights, we only had one. The breakfast was really one of the best we had. Not so many possibilities to go for dinner but we went to the Mozambique style venue which was quite good.

We just loved everything about this little gem......we stayed in the detached two bedroomed self-catering bungalow which gave us total privacy for al fresco breakfasts and evening braiis yet was 10 seconds away from the beautiful main viewing area with comfy loungers and lovely pool. So you get the best of both worlds! The accommodation is of an excellent standard... More

A great place to stay at the crocodile river. We haven't seen crocodiles in front of Buckler's but in stead there were buffalos, elephants and rhinos. A week before we arrived a group of lions killed a buffalo. Sitting in your relax chair overlooking the river that's what you can see. A beautifull place, very warm and hospital staff and... More

We stayed there for only one night but the hosts are very friendly and helpful. The accommodation is beautiful with a full kitchen, a very nice bathroom and an upstairs sleeping room. Buckler's Africa is located directly at the boarder of Krugers and you can watch animals drinking at the river! The only negative thing was that it was pretty... More

The location is a bit difficult to find but very close to the Park's entrance. The closest town at about 5 minutes by car. Nice welcome from the owner and glad to get a large and clean room. The swimming pool was unfortunately dirty and/or not well maintained. Coming back from a dinner outside, not later than 21:00 (the evening... More

Dear Guest Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Buckler's Africa. Please allow me to comment on the following: This time of the year, it is normally very windy in our area and with the sugar farmers burning their crops to allow it to be cut it makes it even more difficult to keep the premises...

This was our third visit to Bucklers, so difficult to add to much, apart from the fact that my wife and I are well travelled and prefer to find new places each year. The draw to Bucklers is like something is calling you back to the perfect place to spend your whole holiday. Thanks to Cheryl, OJ, Leanne, Kurt and... More

It's a 5 minute drive to Kruger from Buckler's. The hosts are excellent, arranging for everything and they are very kind. The beds were some of the most comfortable we've slept on when traveling. Having A/C is nice too. All kitchen amenities were available and in decent shape. Be prepared that there isn't really anything else to do in this... More

We stayed at three different Sanpark sites within the Kruger itself, which were actually surprisingly good, before spending a couple of weeks in Mozambique and then returning to SA for a few days rest before flying back to the UK. This was intended just to be time to rest after 2000km in Moz but with the Kruger just across the... More

Buckler's Africa makes you feel like coming home after an exciting day in the park. The rooms are furnished with love to details and the owners and staff are very friendly and supportive. Library and binoculars have proofed very useful, the offered breakfast was delicious!

This place is hidden gem. The staff are phenomenal and the views even better. The lodge has the most amazing pool and relaxation area overlooking the Crocodile River into the world famous Kruger Park. Only 5 minutes from the park entrance, Bucklers Africa is a wonderful stay. Luxurious and well equipped. The owners have gone to lengths to ensure your... More
