the setting is breathtaking, the location for visits to Kruger Park perfect, the room was lovely. Next time we visit the Park we will definitely stay at Buckler's again. with only a few km to Crocodile Bridge Gate it is no problem to stay outside the Park and still be there for an early morning game drive.

We enjoyed our brief stay ar Bucklers Africa. We stayed in the self catering apartment our only discomfort was in the bedroom being upstairs and so it go very hot at night. The aircon upstairs didn't work so we had a very hot night. Otherwise a great situation, friendly hosts and spacious clean rooms.

Wonderful location, received a warm welcome fro the owners, we had some electricity issues, but owners were very helpful, this did not spoil our enjoyment of the place.Would recommend this hotel & lovely location by the river to anyone as it is right on Kruger Park Crocodile Bridge Gate, if we ever return to the area would use it again.

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.
