We were here with extended family - so, mixed expectations - but all agreed the accommodation, river-side view, peace, and passing wild life made our stay comfortable and successful. Water, soft drinks and alcohol are available on site. Access to Kruger National Park is a short drive away. Highly recommended.

If you are here to visit Kruger Park (and that would be the only reason), This is a fantastic location. Only 5 minutes from Crocodile Bridge gate means you are in the best part of the park very quickly. As far as the accommodation is concerned, we stayed at the bedroom apartment. It was away from the rest of the... More

Amazing experience and service! We wish we could have stay more nights. Right after our check out we saw a family of elephants crossing the river. Highly recommended and great value for money (cheaper that the Kruger's rest camps).

We really enjoyed our brief stay at Bucker's. There is definitely a big difference in quality compared to the accommodations / camps in the Kruger Park - and the price is comparable. Beautiful view and top service. Rooms have style and excellent taste.

Beautiful place with amazing view of the river where you can relax yourself watching elephants and rhinos walking along the banks of the river. Private parking available just outside the hotel. Room very clean and staff very friendly! Big Swimming pool to refresh yourself during the hot African days! Just 5 minutes driving from crocodile bridge gate.

We only stayed one night at Buckler's but wished we stayed longer. The best view any guesthouse can have ! Besides that, breakfast was nice, rooms were great, nice patio, great pool. Mind you, there were only us and another couple. We saw lots of birds, hippo's, buffelo, warthogs, water buck from the garden. In KomatiPoort itself was not much... More
