A quick weekend away with my family, stayed in a 6 sleeper chalet in the Starling camp. It was good accommodation with everything you would expect in self-catering. The best thing about Burchells is it's proximity to the Kruger Gate, it's literally 2mins away and then you are on one of the best game viewing roads in the entire park.... More

It was our first time staying at this self catering accomodation, as we recently bought timeshare here. It was truly wonderful. The units are very clean, all equipment working. The BBQ (Braai) area is a nice social space. We had 6 adults staying there and it was very roomy. There is nothing better sitting on your porch and watching the... More

We have just returned from a weekend at Burchell's. Each lodge is set in its own private area and fits into the natural surroundings. The kitchen is well appointed for self-catering and there are two en suite bedrooms plus a loft area that sleeps two. The décor is tastefully ethnic. Bathrooms are a little dated but function well. We just... More

Ample and well located for early game drive Don't expect a gold crown, dry, dull grounds, compared to lush neighbouring kruger. Noisy from road with neighbours right on top of us. No privacy hear every word. Limited facilies although avaliable next door hotel. Close to Kruger. Many units empty in school holidays says something ?

Brilliant all around experience.Excellent location from which to go into KNP. Staff were super friendly, chalets were immaculate and nothing was too much trouble for them. Excellent all around experience. Only point i would make is that they try and get internet access. Other than that, had an awesome time. Will definitely be back. By the way , KNP was... More

We visited Burchell's Lodge 3 years ago and had a wonderful experience. We cant wait for the beginning of June to return there. Absolutely wonderful! On visiting there you must make provision for the necessary food and drinks if you want to save money and time, but it is definately worth it. Come June!!!!! w

We spent a week at Burchells Bush Lodge and what a fantastic time we had. We stayed in a 2 bedroom loft cottage that was nicely decorated with an African theme. The cottage was clean, the kitchen well stocked and the air conditioning was well appreciated in the summer heat. I loved the fact that the cottages were so private.... More

Spent an enthralling week at Burchell's. We did not have a problem at all with the staff. Very friendly and helpful. I did not want to come back home. What a beautiful atmosphere.

The lodge is safari themed and the biggest draw is that it is right at the Kruger Gate. The staff are friendly, but only if you ask. We visited the lodge as part of a timeshare exchange program. Our biggest drawback was the fact that the units are only partially air-conditioned. The loft and the living area which includes the... More
