Incredible location on the bank of the river, with numerous animals to spot. The rooms/bungalows are spacious and clean. The hosts are very kind and are ready to help. Possibility to cook your own food and also to organise Private barbecues. Great breakfast

The cleanest lodge we have ever came across. The quality of the bed and linen was just excellent. Breakfast was fantastic and staff very friendly and helpful. You can really rest in this quiet environment. View was fantastic.

Buckler's Africa is situated in close proximity to the Crocodile Bridge entry gate to the Kruger National Park. The rooms are clean,comfortable and well equipped.

Buckler's is the very right place to start safaris into Kruger, you can even watch the first game from the verandah, which is really exciting, especially on the day of arrival. The two ladies do everything to make the stay comfortable and care a lot. Breakfast is plenty and prepared with love. Only thing to complain is that, like in... More

We enjoyed our stay at Buckler's Africa. It is beautifully situated at the Crocodile River. We were warmly welcomed. Staff is relaxed and make sure that everything we could need or want is available. They serve a great breakfast.

We were warmly welcomed by Candice, however, we couldn't help rushing out to see the wonderful views of the Crocodile river. Candice kindly opened up after supper so the children could have the promised ice-creams. The accommodation suited our party, with comfortable beds and hot showers. Waking up to the animals in the river was the best. Breakfast was a... More

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).
