Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, each with an outdoor shower, a full kitchen, and a terrace overlooking the Crocodile River. We saw hippos bathing on the second morning while we...

Buckler's Africa is a delightful experience of peace and quiet on the banks of the Crocodile River. The lodge is a gem and Cheryl, AJ and family are excellent hosts making us feel welcome and at home. We highly recommend this holiday destination and would certainly consider returning when we visit Kruger again.

The location is literally facing the Kruger. It is few minutes away from the Crocodile bridge entry, very convenient. Rooms are comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful. I will come back without any hesitation.

We love Bucklers and its proximity to Kruger Park. It's as good as being in the park without staying in the park. Access to the park is close by which enables one to enter the park at ones leisure particularly when yoy have a wild Card for SANPARKS.

Bucklers is a great place to stay and spend your time between Kruger park tours. We've seen rhino, elephant, kudu and Buffalo very close while we were lying at the pool. Great to be so close to wild animals while relaxing. We also had a braai before the appartement which was really nice

Welcoming lodge with enthusiastic staff. Excellent breakfast & views overlooking Crocodile River & into Kruger Park. Comfortable, if a little dated, but you won't be disappointed. Crocodile Gate is 5 minutes away; an excellent base for day trips.
