About Buckler's Africa Lodge by BON Hotels

Buckler’s Africa Lodge by BON Hotels is an informal private lodge in a stunning setting on the banks of the Crocodile River, overlooking the Kruger National Park. The thatched property has high ceilings and cool terracotta covers over five hectares of garden and bush.

Relax by the swimming pool and watch game over the river or drive into the Kruger National Park, which is 7 km away. The Mozambique Coast or the mountains of Swaziland are both a little more than an hour’s drive. We provide airport transfers and secure parking.

Stunning! We have enjoyed every minute. Friendly warm atmosphere, owners very involved feel like old friends.Very clean, like the full house breakfast overlooking the Crocodile River / Kruger Park. Were very lucky to have the Elephants right at our doorstep and Buffalo. Will go back anytime. Warm regards Johan and Sanja Holtzhausen.

We stayed at Bucklers 2 nights to explore the south of Kruger Park and it was just wonderful. We had breakfast looking at the elephants and hippos in Crocodile River. Although we had reserved a standard room, they offered us a cottage for the same price when we arrived, as there were noisy people staying in the room next to us. It was just a dream, the furniture, the bed, all decorated with a real good taste in an African style. Its been one of the best places where weve stayed during our trip around South Africa.

An absolutely excellent place to stay. Comfortable and friendly with easy access to the Kruger although we saw so much from the garden (including an elephant feeding within touching distance) that the Kruger almost became an added extra.

We spent the weekend at Bucklers Africa & were upgraded to the two bedroom unit which was fantastic & very private. We watched hippos, elephants & rhinos while we were swimming!Just a quick 5 minute drive to Crocodile Bridge & you're in the park.We will definitely be back!

This was a very nice stay. If I ever come back to South Africa, I will go to this place. We enjoyed it very much, sitting outside and watching the animals. We saw hippos, rhinos, elephants and buffaloes. We had all what we need, a kitchen, a braai, a pool - it was a wonderful time.
