Was very impressed with Bucklers. Will definitely stay there again. Was a real delight walking out onto the green grass with the boundary fence about 20 metres away and seeing Elephant, buffalo, impala, waterbuck and Kudu.

Our only regret about Buckler's was that we could not stay longer than two nights. The views from the patio overlooking the Crocodile River are absolutely gorgeous and the rooms are comfortable and clean. We stayed in their largest apartment (self catering) with two bedrooms and additional two beds in the open loft. All rooms are tastefully decorated, beds are...

the setting is breathtaking, the location for visits to Kruger Park perfect, the room was lovely. Next time we visit the Park we will definitely stay at Buckler's again. with only a few km to Crocodile Bridge Gate it is no problem to stay outside the Park and still be there for an early morning game drive.

We enjoyed our brief stay ar Bucklers Africa. We stayed in the self catering apartment our only discomfort was in the bedroom being upstairs and so it go very hot at night. The aircon upstairs didn't work so we had a very hot night. Otherwise a great situation, friendly hosts and spacious clean rooms.

Wonderful location, received a warm welcome fro the owners, we had some electricity issues, but owners were very helpful, this did not spoil our enjoyment of the place.Would recommend this hotel & lovely location by the river to anyone as it is right on Kruger Park Crocodile Bridge Gate, if we ever return to the area would use it again.

We stayed here for 2 nights. It is fenced with a controlled access gate. The property has a very "log cabin" feel to it but the interiors of the common area and the guest rooms are updated. Bathrooms were very clean and updated. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with a den/kitchen and a private patio. The rooms back...

Very nice location which invites to stay longer. From the balcony elephant-watching is possible. Very beautiful and big flats with perfect equipment. Very friendly staff. For the self catering supermarkets in Komatipoort should be used, nothing is closer than that. In a short drive distance one(!) restaurant is available. For a short stay this is ok, for a longer stay...
