We stayed one night only, but definitely a place to stay again. Wonderful location near the river, Wide cottage and lovely peoples. Birds wake you up, and Elephants can visit you if you are lucky. I recommend !!

It was our first stay at Bucklers and I wouldn't hesitate to go back. Good accommodation in the family unit, friendly staff and a great view of the River with it requisite Elephants! It is mostly self-catering as they only offer breakfast and that for an hour. They do however have a honesty bar, ice and charcoal if you want...

Cheryl was very friendly and helpful and even upgrade is from a room to a chalet. So relaxing there and just watch the elephants walking on the river bed. Even saw a rhino. Close to town and no gravel road to get to the lodge.

On the banks of the Crocodile river one could hardly ask for a better location. Add in the ability to braai while you watch the elephants eating metres away and safely below you. Then top it off with nice linen, good bathrooms and friendly staff.

From the time we arrived you are made to feel like long time friends/family. The owners & staff really are beautiful souls. The grounds/view & lodges are stunning. Within an hour of being there we saw 6 rhino on the other side of Crocodile River and the next day around 24 Elephants. Absolute bliss. The last morning we all booked...
