Incredible view of the Kruger Park across the river. Definitely bring your binoculars! Extremely friendly and helpful owners. Beautiful accommodation with all the mod-cons. Had a wonderful breakfast overlooking the park.

From the time we arrived you are made to feel like long time friends/family. The owners & staff really are beautiful souls. The grounds/view & lodges are stunning. Within an hour of being there we saw 6 rhino on the other side of Crocodile River and the next day around 24 Elephants. Absolute bliss. The last morning we all booked... More

The couple that runs this B&B are truly a joy to visit with. The accommodations have an amazing view of KNP across the river and the breakfast is completely excellent. Could not suggest a better place to stay.

This was our third visit to Bucklers over the last 6 years and is a great place to stay with the Crocodile bridge gate just a few " clicks" away. The view from all the river fronted thatched rooms spans across the river right into the park Just viewing from the garden deck and pool area we saw Elephant herd... More

Excellent high-class accommodation - we had a self-catering thatched lodge for four - with a pool from which we watched hippos, crocs, buffalo, giraffe, warthogs and elephants across the Crocodile River. The Kruger park gate is a five minute drive away and we were in the park... More

Lovely place, very clean, right on the river - we saw 9 hippos grazing the minute we arrived. Watching them from the nice pool - what an experience! Extremely successful game drives arranged by hosts. Easy access and near to Kruger. We enjoyed this part of the park much more than further in the north. Definitely a good place to... More
