Had a great time at Buckler's and surrounding areas and restaurants. Had awesome sightings in the Kruger Park. Breakfast was great and relaxing having a braai in the evening and watching the wild life was something you can just do all day everyday 👌🏻

We warmly recommend Buckler's Africa. The view from the pool deck of the Kruger Park was amazing. We could see impalas and warthogs from our relaxing chairs. The hearty welcome was a pleasure and the rooms were clean and comfortable.

We stay for two lovely days at Buckers's Africa. It is a wonderful lodge perfectly located direct a the border to the Kruger NP and only some minutes to the Crocodile Gate. Next we will stay here some days more.

Bucklers Africa is the perfect spot overlooking the Crocodile River. Plenty of game come down to the river from The Kruger Park so you can sit on the terrace and watch without leaving the hotel. Rooms very good, staff excellent.\, bed very comfortable. Only negatives were the lack of WIFI and the fact that the room was quite dark.

Bucklers is conveniently located just off the main road to Crocodile Bridge and ideal for a stop over. The views from the lodge are excellent. They serve a superb breakfast. The beds are little hard but that is a personal preference

5 min from the Kruger gate, let's escape to the Buckler's Africa... In front of the Crocodile River, at the border of the Kruger Park, it's a very peaceful place.

A delightful place with a magnificent view of the river. It offers splendid, peaceful sunsets. Conveniently located for those visiting the Kruger National Park. We enjoyed good food at Komatipoort which is also close. The service was excellent.

Lodge simply fantastic ! In front of the river, at the border of Kruger Park South. Having a breakfast sitting and viewing Kruger and the animals on the river. Rooms and services super ! Only a remark: wifi missing, but beside this important requirement, everything superb.

Incredible location on the bank of the river, with numerous animals to spot. The rooms/bungalows are spacious and clean. The hosts are very kind and are ready to help. Possibility to cook your own food and also to organise Private barbecues. Great breakfast
