About Buckler's Africa

Buckler’s Africa 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.

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.

Kruger Africa Safaris

Kick back in an open safari vehicle on a tour of Kruger National Park. Qualified FGSA field guides will introduce you to the Big 5 and seek for the Magnificent 7. Definitely a far more enjoyable Kruger experience than self-driving in a small sedan.
