    The perfect stay for a luxurious safari!

    Bukela Game Lodge is the perfect stay for a short safari. We stayed 2 days at the lodge and never experienced such a luxury. The staff makes sure everything is perfectly arranged. Bukela is the only lodge that is not fenced in the area which makes it possible to wake up and have wild animals outside your front door. Would definitely recommend Bukela!

  • 8.0.Very Good

    die Lage ist wunderbar, das Wasserloch lockt viele Tiere an, bei uns kamen 2x über 25 Elefanten, die beiden Pools sind klein aber sehr angenehm und schön gemacht, die Hütten könnten sauberer sein, das Essen könnte besser sein, das Servicepersonal war sehr langsam und manchmal einwenig unwissend, die Einführung am Anfang war trocken und kurz.

    Lodge mit hervorragendem Preis-Leistungsverhältnis

    Eine großartige Lodge, die sich durch liebevolle Details und persönliche und herzliche Atmosphäre auszeichnet. In den reetgedeckten Häusern hat man einen freien Blick in den Dachgiebel.

    Großartige Anlage mit liebenswertem Personal

    Liebe zum Detail, wunderschöne Chalets mit Ofen und Blick in den Giebel. Die Ranger gaben sich jede Mühe, die Big 5 aufzuspüren.
