An absolutely amazing place with breathtaking views over the national park. Watched buffalo, hippos and rhinos from the pool on both days and the cabins themselves were just beautiful. Lovely friendly staff who couldn't be more accommodating. Will be back in the future 100%

We've stayed here for 2 nights and I want to say all the good things about the place. very hospitable place, perfectly located just across the river from Kruger Park - and YES, You can just sit comfortably in a chair and observe the animals; we've seen giraffes, hippos and antelopes during our short stay. Not to mention the hyenas...

A wonderful spot for our Kruger stay, we thoroughly enjoyed the staff and the accommodation. The accommodation was spacious, clean and felt very authentically South African. Would highly recommend Buckler's Africa

The lodge is beautiful and set in wonderful surroundings. We travelled with four friends and had booked the three bedroom lodge, We had the upper bedroom on the mezzanine floor but were then offered accommodation next door, where we would be more comfortable. All the staff were very friendly and accommodating.

Very comfortable in beautiful setting and close to Crocodile bridge into the Kruger Park. We did not have breakfast so cannot give an opinion. We thought that upgrading the tv and enough lighting for reading at night will make the stay more pleasurable.

Very good Location directly at the egde of Kruger. We could see the hippos from the pool area. The rooms were extraordinary large with all you need for self catering and also for a pleasent night. Also the staff was awesome.

Went with my girlfriend in February 2017, and we had an amazing time! The lodge is wonderful; large and clean and with a great view to the Kruger Park. The owners and staff are incredibly nice and friendly, and they will truly go above and beyond for their guests. I really recommend visiting Buckler's.

Buckler's Africa was everything we hoped for. Beautifully situated overlooking the river, close to Crocodile Gate and very comfortable in every way. Friendly and helpful staff, wonderful breakfast, cleanliness everywhere. Wi-fi missing, though.

It was a beautiful lodge and a stunning location with vieuws to the Kruger Park. The owner was a nice person. I'll definitely be back here. If i had to rate it would be a 10. The only pity was that there was no internet. But hey you can not have everything.

My friend and I stayed during January 2017, and were blown away by the hospitality and beauty of Bucklers. Our every need was catered for by the staff, and waking up in the morning to see elephants in the morning- incredible! Bucklers is really well located, 5 minutes from the gate to Kruger park, and 10 from a small town...
