Clothing - Dress code and clothing is informal. It is advisable to wear loose fitting and light garments in summer, layering clothing in winter. Sensible shoes are important in the rough terrain.

Sun hats, sunglasses and swimming costume are required in summer. Fleeced sweatshirts, golf shirts, robes and caps are available for purchase from the lodge should guests require any of these items.

Equipment - A good pair of binoculars is a recommendation especially for bird watching. Good photographs can be taken on game drives when the vehicle is stationary, but rarely when in transit as terrain is rough. Guests should bear this in mind when purchasing suitable camera equipment. The recommended film is 100-200 A.S.A. and a zoom lens is not always a necessity but recommended.

Food - Please inform management at Bukela of any specific dietary preferences you may have before arrival.

Beverages and snacks over and above that mentioned can be requested throughout a guests stay, accounts for which may be settled on departure.

Our staff is always available to assist guests wherever necessary. Incoming calls may be received on the lodge cellular phone.

Water -The water is derived from a borehole and not for human consumption. Complementary bottled water is provided. Wines - Bukela Lodge offers a versatile and well-appointed selection of South African and International wines, sparkling wines and French champagne to suit your palate. Weather - The region is temperate with summer conditions (October – March) reaching temperatures of 36C. Winter (April-September) brings many sunny days but evenings can be chilly. Rain falls mainly in the summer months and umbrellas are available in the main lodge for your use when traversing to your suite in these conditions. The African climate can change dramatically whatever the season. Rangers will check weather reports before embarking on a game drive, but guests should please ensure that they are suitably attired in “layered” clothing for hot or cold conditions.

Suites: The four suites, Uthando Suite, Ingwe Suite, Inyathi Suite and Umkhombe, are each individually styled in African simplicity while never compromising on luxury. Each suite sleeps two guests and is a world of its own, separated from the main lodge by wooden walkways and indigenous bush. Each suite is well appointed for guests’ optimal comfort with every amenity, including large, en-suite bathrooms each with a spa bath overlooking the African bush, an indoor and outdoor shower for the more adventurous, and a central fireplace for romantic evenings, air-conditioning, under floor heating, private wooden deck, bar fridge and hot drink amenities. Beds are King size or two singles depending on guest requirements.
