Went there on my own for two nights. The room and bathrooms were well up to my expectations, and it was spotless clean. The owners were very nice, and I would defiantly recommend this to others who love the serenity of the bush

Booked Buckler's last minute before driving through the Kruger from Orpen gate to Crocodile Bridge Gate in darkness, the drive to the lodge is easy enough, and road is tarred, making driving in the dark a fairly simple task. The lodge is well sign posted and you only have a 50m drive down a dirt road to the front gate.... More

A really good find. Very convenient for the park, 10 minuted from Crocodile Bridge gate. Very thoughtfully and tastefully furnished with plenty of room for our family of 5. Peaceful with a nice atmosphere and helpful, friendly hosts and staff

We stayed one night only, but definitely a place to stay again. Wonderful location near the river, Wide cottage and lovely peoples. Birds wake you up, and Elephants can visit you if you are lucky. I recommend !!

It was our first stay at Bucklers and I wouldn't hesitate to go back. Good accommodation in the family unit, friendly staff and a great view of the River with it requisite Elephants! It is mostly self-catering as they only offer breakfast and that for an hour. They do however have a honesty bar, ice and charcoal if you want... More

We have just returned from our holiday visiting friends in South Africa. Part of this included a stay at Buckler's for our 10th Wedding Anniversary. Wow what an amazing experience! The surprise special breakfast was lovely. Thank you! Xxx

Cheryl was very friendly and helpful and even upgrade is from a room to a chalet. So relaxing there and just watch the elephants walking on the river bed. Even saw a rhino. Close to town and no gravel road to get to the lodge.

On the banks of the Crocodile river one could hardly ask for a better location. Add in the ability to braai while you watch the elephants eating metres away and safely below you. Then top it off with nice linen, good bathrooms and friendly staff.
