It was so wonderful! Beautiful lodge, excellent food, amazing game drives!

This was an incredible, once in a lifetime experience! The staff at Bukela was amazing!! Very intimate setting, so they are able get to know you and your preferences quickly. Every staff member was eager to help, and were beyond helpful. The food was top notch! Our game drives were nothing short of AMAZING! I wasn’t expecting to get such a close view of the animals. On multiple occasions, the animals were within touching distance, which I was not expecting! My only complaint is with our luxury tent. There was a lack of accessible outlets, including in the bathroom, which made it hard. And our shower was outside!! It was a very unique experience, but if the weather was cold, it was a miserable time. It was also a bit hard to keep cool during the day, but all these I guess were part of the “glamping” experience. If you have the opportunity to go, GO! You won’t regret it ❤️

We had an amazing time, it by far exceeded our expectations. The accommodations were beautiful, the food was delicious and so were the wines with different options to choose from. The best part were the game drive safaris, which we did everyday twice a day, and were included in the package. We saw so many animals and the ranger was very knowledgeable and very nice. We enjoyed the coffee/tea break during the morning game drive safaris as we watched the hippos play in the waterhole and the elephants , and the wine/cocktail with snacks during the afternoon game drive safaris, as we watched the sun set. We also went for massages at least twice, and she was fabulous. Highly recommended it. The staff was very professional, respectful and warm. The lodge very comfortable, and so gorgeous. We stayed for 5 nights and loved every single one of them. Btw if you tell them what your favorite drinks are prior to arrival they will stock you mini fridge(included with your stay) with wine, beer, water, coke, etc.

What can I say! This was the most amazing experience ever! We had the best service and the best guide. Our guide Lucky was top notch! We saw all the big 5 except the jaguar and not be a use he did not try but because they did not have one on the reserve. The safari Jeep was amazing the snacks in the middle of the drive were fantastic. The food the staff just lovely. Massages were delicious. I cannot say enough about Bukela! Just wonderful.

We spent 8 nights at Bukela Game Lodge and went on 17 safaris! It was amazing every time. Our ranger, named Lucky, was extremely knowledgeable and incredible at finding and describing wildlife. All of the staff at Bukela were outstanding; very friendly and accommodating. They made us feel like family. We also really enjoyed the food. One night the staff treated us to African music and dancing before dinner! We would definitely recommend this lodge and are already discussing when we'll return!

Staff were exceptional in their attentiveness. Game drivers were very knowledgeable about the reserve and the animals, and seemed to know just were to go to locate those we were looking for. Food was well prepared with several choices and the accommodations were spacious and in a beautiful setting. Only complaint was that we did not have hot water on two occasions, including the morning of our departure.

Our time at Bukela Game Lodge was magical. From the glamping, to the food, to the amazing safaris, it was amazing. Glen found all kinds of animals including a male lion who had just downed a warthog. The food was delicious, and the serving staff went out of their way to make sure all of our meals were lovely. I couldn't believe that Sammy was in training. She along with all of the other servers were great!
