This must be one of the best and most unique places i have ever been! The lodge is just amazing, the view is even better and the staff is the most helpful staff ever seen! This is my no 1 place to be in South Africa!

This place is such a treat! The view on the river and Kruger Park are amazing and just priceless! If you are lucky you can spot all kinds of animals in and across the river. The accommodation is also very nice and feels luxurious: the pool, terrace, the private area all are quite luxurious. The breakfast served was really nice... More

This is an amazing place to go to in South Africa. For us it has been the best place of our trip with the view all over the Kruger Park! We saw elephants, lions, buffalos, impalas, rhinos and much more! So impressive!

The 2 bedroom self catering accommodation was wonderful: clean, very comy beds, great views of The Kruger National Park. It was lovely sitting and watching the elephants crossing the river from the safety of the accommodation. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would love to return...

The view over the Kruger Park is stunning and the view from the swimming pool is equally lovely. The hosts were great with lots of information and assistance. A very nice, pleasant and relaxing stay all n all .....

Great views of the Kruger make Buckler's Africa a very convenient venue to use when you want to visit the Kruger "from the outside" (not live inside the Kruger). The hosts goes out of their way to make you feel at home!

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
