We spent 2 nights at the lovely Bukela. We stayed at the closest lodge and were rewarded by sighting a family of warthogs by the watering hole right as we stepped into our room. We felt very relaxed at the main lodge during our resting times in between drives and felt the staff were very attentive.
The highlight of our stay were the drives, and we learned so much from Jeff, whom we think has superhuman eyes and an uncanny ability to find animals. We saw the big5 and so many more. We were also treated to several unusual experiences like watching a cheetah with her kill or a family of giraffes walking a couple of meters in front of us.
We thank Simon, Jeff and the staff at Bukela for an unforgettable time!
