They say a picture paints a thousand words!! you will need to be sitting on one of those patio chairs on the deck. After traveling 4 hours plus from Pretoria and unpacking the luggage.... it took 10 minutes of sitting on the deck and staring downwards onto the crocodile river in the Kruger Park... tranquility and peacefulness just envelopes your mind. After a good nights sleep we had breakfast in the restaurant area. feeling invigorated we left for a full day in the Kruger National Park entering via the Crocodile Bridge gate. upon returning around sunset we sat on the deck with sun downer's until we were served with the most scrumptious 4 course valentines dinner, and i mean it!!! Our stay is very much imprinted in my memory... and i have the photo's to remind me of the good time. Rod de Beer

First and foremost want to thank the amazing team from Buckler's Africa Lodge for their welcoming us taking care of our every need and treating us like VIP's... they truly rolled out the red carpet for us and looked after us so well, if there was a million-star rating I could give the accommodation, meals, and service this team gives their guests it would definitely surpass it by far, they have their own "Master Chef" in the kitchen that makes thee most delicious meals from the starter right through to dessert (Lowveld Orange Malva) it was DELICIOUS...!! A short drive from SANPARKS Crocodile Bridge Gate, Kruger National this little gem overlooking the might Crocodile River and Kruger National Park is definitely worth a stopover... Sarah, Sifiso & Johan you and your wonderful Team are SUPERSTARS thank you for all that you did for us during our stay we couldn't have asked to be spoilt more than what you guys & girls did for us....You are ALL AMAZING... !!! I cannot say thank you enough for all you did... The Deluxe (inter-leading) rooms were amazing and beautifully decorated everything we needed and more was there at our disposal and if we needed anything one of the friendly staff members was only too happy to be there in seconds to provide us with whatever we needed, followed by a huge smile...amazing attention to detail to make your guests feel "home"... Hope to return someday soon again....!!! 5*+

Had a fantastic three night stay in a family room. The rooms are well equipped with high end finishes and the self-catering aspect makes your time easy when travelling with a family. The meals however were well prepared and the portions are generous. Additions to the breakfast and dinner menu would however go a long way. Overall, the staff were amazing, they catered to every need and the views of the crocodile river at sunrise and sunset are plain wonderful. After staying at this lodge, I don't think it would be worthwhile to stay anywhere else, except if it were within the Bon Group of Hotels. The convenience of staying 5 minutes away from the KNP cannot be bought. Shout out to John at reception who went out of his way to ensure that nothing was left wanting during our stay. Shout out also to the kitchen staff and Sarah who checked on us every so often to ensure that we were comfortable.

Buckers Africa Lodge superseded all our expectations. The lodge is ideally located near Kruger Park, boasts breathtaking views of the landscape with the animals visiting close enough as you stand on the viewing deck. The interior of the lodges are beautifully decorated with all the necessary requirements for self catering. The staff were friendly, approachable and helpful with John being available 24 hours round the clock. Definitely worth a visit. We will be back.

There's nothing negative to say. Great position, wonderful rooms, professional & attentive staff. They are allprepared to go the extra mile. Linda, John & Therese are great hosts. Set on the Crocdile River, over looking the Kruger, you can spend you day on their deck or head to the Kruger Park entrance, around 10 minutes away. Highly recommended for a night or a week. You'l love it.
