    The staff and facilities at Bukela lodge were absolutely amazing! We felt beyond catered to the entire time that we were there. We spent 4 nights which gave us a great opportunity to see so much of the wild life but also feel completely relaxed every day. We hope to be able to return to Bukela in the future, their staff and facility are worth every cent, we just wish we could have stayed longer!

    The location and the design of the lodge is perfect; the tents are excellent equipped; to some extend even a little bit too comfortable (e.g. A/C within the tent).

    Unfortunately the service could not satisfy with the price and the standard of 5 stars. Especially the service in the dining area and the housekeeping. The gluten-free food - even though addressed a couple of times upfront - was not really prepared.

    Mesmerizing place to stay, great hospitality and atmosphere , it can‘t be better ! Elefants, warthogs and other animals coming into the lodge cause there ain‘t no fencies. Brilliant game drives twice a day, ask for the very Ranger Andrew, he was a phantastic guide, he lives his job - perfect 10! The higher price in comparison to other lodges is worth the experience you may expect ! Btw, we left there yesterday and have already a reservation for next year !

    No words needed !

    We stayed in the luxury tented accommodation which was exceptional in terms of spaciousness, comfort, facilities and location. The lounge, dining area, swimming pools and gazebo were also very attractively located and suitably luxurious but the best of all were the staff ranging from management to waitrons to the safari guide who took us on the game drives. We saw a good range of game animals from close quarters and were given some amazing photographic opportunities. We will certainly be back.

    The roads need some attention but management stated this is being attended to. Not much else - an exceptional venue.

    Bukela gave us the full safari experience! Beautiful tents located in the middle of the African bush. We met a few wild animals around our cabin and it was very exciting! The food was delicious and just at the right amount. Game drives were EXCELLENT! We loved our ranger CV, he was very informative and he was the main reason we enjoyed our stay so much.

    The reception wasn't as responsive as we wished... But not a big deal. We would have enjoyed more vegetables in our meals, especially breakfast. Other than that - PERFECT experience.
