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...

Two friends and I had the most wonderful stay here. The accommodation is top class and the hospitality from our hosts was absolutely awesome. If you want to stay outside Kruger, but be close enough for day trips, then this is the place to stay. Overall, a very impressive experience.

We wanted to visit the Kruger National Park, and Buckler's Africa is conveniently located about 5 minutes from the gate at Crocodile Bridge. We have 2 sons, so opted for the self catering option and it was absolutely perfect. Two bedrooms (both en-suite with fantastic outdoor showers), lounge, kitchenette...

We had a lovely time at Buckler's Africa. The team were very friendly and gave us some great tips for getting in and around the Kruger. The lodge is positioned right on the river - you hardly notice the other lodges. A great spot to enjoy the Kruger from without paying Kruger accommodation rates.

Buckler's Africa is a very well located lodge just outside Crocodile Bridge gate of the Kruger National Park, the garden of the lodge and most of the rooms have a beautiful view over the river into the park. We were received well and given a spacious room with a huge bathroom which did not even include the shower as that...

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.
