We have been to burchells a number of times and continue to enjoy it! I love that it is so close to the gate and within its own small private reserve. There are a number of buck and zebra in the camp enjoying the peaceful surrounds. The accommodation is very comfortable and well kept. If you are like me you... More

Great self catering accommodation right at the Paul Kruger Gate. Highly recommended. The cottage was fully serviced and the appointments in the house were good. Need to remove the bush babies in the ceiling as kept us awake some nights.

Burchell's Bush Lodge is a very well-managed bush resort close to the Paul Kruger Gate. It is very peaceful accommodation and well-maintained. The timeshare also has its own pool for the hot summer days. Close to a gate into KNP, as mentioned. We would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the bushveld. One also has the use/convenience of the Protea... More

Burchell's is a really comfortable spot suitable for daily forays into the Kruger Park. Being self-catering, we found everything that we required for all our needs, whether braaiing or preparing a full meal. The staff are exceptionally helpful and the little bush buck and larger kudu are friendly wanderers. Beds are extremely comfortable, the fridge keeps the beers cold, the... More

We were fortunate enough to buy timeshare at this great place so we get to go every year! It is literally a 500m drive from the Paul Kruger gate and shares space with the protea hotel which has a wonderful restaurant, pool area and stunning view onto the Sabi river, all of which is accessible to Burchell's guests. The staff... More

I just love the bush. Burchels is ideally situated, 200m from the Paul Kruger Gate, and a very short walk to the Protea Hotel. The lodge is right on the boundary fence to Sabi Sabi Game Reserve so many animals are seen and heard up and down the fence line. The accommodation is slightly dated but it is clean and... More

We were five people including two small children. Facilities are slightly dated, but has got everything you need. Nice and clean, with good security. The camp is situated literally right outside Paul Kruger Gate, providing easy access to the Kruger National Park.

I am a big fan of Kruger but really prefer to stay inside the park. This is one place that I feel we will return because it feels more wild and 'krugerfied' than other bordering places. The lodge really is right next to Paul Kruger gate, a short walk through the lodge will take you right to the fence of... More

Quiet and peaceful resort in the bush, but right next to the Sabie River and Paul Kruger Gate into the Park. Very well equipped with air conditioning in bedrooms, swimming pool in the grounds, and very easy access to the Protea Kruger Gate Hotel which is just a short walk away and has a deck overlooking the river, perfect for...

Loved the resort. Peaceful and felt I was in the bush. Very close to the Kruger National Park. Serviced daily. Would love to return. Evening drinks sitting by the river and watching animals. Staff friendly and accommodating.
