Arriving at Bucklers is a bit of a mission as the road is being upgraded from dirt to tarmac, but once you have arrived it is like heaven on earth. The welcome from Cheryl was warm and welcoming, as was the beautiful room with an en-suite bathroom and another en-suite shower room. Breakfast was taken on the patio outside where you could watch the Kruger come to life, with Hippo's in the river, an elderly elephant coming to inspect, or Kudu to enjoy the green grass, all just beyond the fence, the Bucklers saying that the Kruger is their back yard is certainly true. The peace and quiet makes for a relaxing break from going into the park which is only 5minutes drive away at Crocodile Bridge Gate . Although Buckers is B&B (or self catering) Cheryl and her husband O.J. will go and fetch a take away for you, or there are places to eat in Komatipoort and nearby establishments. We stayed for four nights and wished it was for much longer. This was not only the best value B&B, but also the best in comfort, friendliness and ambience that we have found in this part of South Africa.
