Absolutely delightful facility. Makes for a relaxing stay. Gorgeous large unit, deck on Crocodile River to watch Kruger animals and birds. Swimming pool. Cheryl is perfect host. Can't say enough good things.

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...

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. We spent the afternoon on the terrace, overlooking the river. One piece of advice : have a sit, have a beer (or something else!), forget everything, but... don't close your...
