We booked 4 rooms at Buckler's last week. From the initial booking to saying goodbye to Cheryl and OJ, our experience was one of friendliness and efficiency. The rooms are very comfortable with a kitchen in each. They are serviced each day, including washing any dirty dishes. The beds were very comfortable with top class linen. Our room (no.3) had...

We enjoyed the time a lot. The garden is fantastic with direct view to the Krüger nationalpark. It was a pity that we have booked only one night - then WE asked to stay one night longer. Thanks you very much for markeing this possible! We'll come back for sure!!

The best location in our entire trip. After all, one cannot always expect to have breakfast with a herd of elephants, few hippos or kudus right across the river. The rooms were okayish, ours had some issue with the air-conditioning which was a bit irritating. Staff very courteous. Pool could be better. But the location is so breathtakingly good, that... More

We stayed at Buckler's Africa for 5 nights and we enjoyed every minute: the location is fabulous, staff very nice and kind, the house very well equipped. But the very best thing is the view! We saw elephants swimming in the river, hippos,kudus and waterbucks grassing, buffaloes resting at the river, and not least elephants coming up to the lodge... More

I spend two nights at Buckler's Africa. When you arrive, you feel like you are already in the Kruger Park. The view is amazing, the rooms beautiful and the staff is really friendly. I spent 11 hours at a big safari 4 wheel drive in the Kurger National Park with Kurt, an amazing guy. We had fun and learned a... More

We took our visitors from Minneapolis to visit Kruger Park. Buckler's seem like a convenient location but little did we know how truly wonderful our stay would be at their great lodge. We're going back!

My husband and I recently stayed at Buckler's for our honeymoon. Our GPS got us turned around and we spent over an hour on a dirt road & in a banana field trying to find the lodge! So, one word of advice: get directions from Cheryl beforehand and don't rely fully on GPS! Once we finally made it to Buckler's,... More

The lodge is right next to the kruger and close enough to town (although you couldnt walk it!).. the lodge is really nice and chilled out... they offer cars jeeps to rent by the hr which is great.. the view out onto the park is amazing and its hard to beat waking up to see a rhino accross the river!

We had the wonderful stay, just a pity it was so short. Buckler's Africa is truly worthy of their 4 star rating. Service was excellent, staff and owners are really friendly and make you feel right at home. Great views and close to all amenities. Great service guys keep it up!
