Stayed in unit 23 as a Timeshare Owner of week 51 who exchanged for January 2017. As this timeshare is on the same property as Protea Mariott Hotel Kruger Gate, one would expect to be part of the Hotel. Big was our surprise that this was indeed the contrary. At our arrival, we were told at the Entrance Gate to...

This is a very rustic lodge and very secluded. The Paul Kruger Gate is about 2 k's away. Units well equipped and comfortable. Unfortunately there is no aircon in the living area, only in the bedrooms so in the hot months from Nov to Mar it will be hot. Staff are very helpful. Saw Kudu, Impala & Bush Buck wondering...

The area is in the grip of a severe drought, but the accommodation is cool and comfortable, and the pool very welcome. Birdlife, usually prolific in this area, was somewhat scarce because of the drought. Small-spotted genets are known to become very confiding and tame around sites like these and we had one visiting every evening. A greater bushbaby also...

Burchells is perfectly positioned for trips to Kruger, being only a few hundred metres from the gate. Comfortable lodges, with a full service of the chalet everyday. Enjoyable swimming pool. Welcome visits from monkey and meerkats

Had three nights here as part of a package tour. Great food in the restaurant and the boma. Entertained one evening by local song and dance troupe. Great to relax and view some of the wildlife from the bar and viewing platforms. Rooms clean and beds comfortable. Also a small shop (no tat). The proximity to Kruger gate meant that...

A very enjoyable week. Amenities more than adequate. Staff very friendly and visible. Chalet was clean and neat. A pleasure to be close to nature with hours of peace. The bar and lookout deck at the hotel was the ideal place to relax and view.

My family and I were lucky to get a week at Burchell's Bush Lodge through RCI in July. Check-In was easy and we were assisted to our chalet by two very helpful porters. The chalet was large, clean and well-equipped. Apart from the strong smell of cigarette smoke in the guest room it was perfect. Guests should note that Burchell's...
