    Everything was excellent, the service, the facilities and the location. Had the most wonderful time, would highly recommend it. The staff was very friendly, the lodge doesn't house to many people and facilities like the pool were always available and kept clean.

    Buckler's Africa is a beautiful lodge near kruger. Excellent rooms, nice breakfast and just an AMAZING view at krugerpark. Very close to crocodile bridge gate and marloth park (nice for evening dinner). We loved it and will return for sure!
