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

We could not have chosen a better location and lodge to spend our 40th wedding anniversary! Thank you to Kert ,Sonja and staff for making our stay so special - nothing was too much trouble for them. We strongly recommend this as an ideal getaway and hope to return soon.

A beautiful location. Lovely architecture and decor. Very friendly and helpful staff. A very important feature is it is so close to Crocodile Bridge gate, so very convenient for the Kruger Park. Also great viewing across the river.

We stayed at Buckler's Africa for 6 nights and this was more fantastic than the website's pictures and reviews promised. We felt so INTO the Kruger Park, the view is absolutely unique. Saw lots of game and more then once a herd of elephants visited our 'fence'. The staff was very friendly and helpfull, accommodation perfect and clean, breakfast delicious.... More
