This was amazing! I don't think I've ever ate so much in my life, but everything is cooked or baked freshly so it's hard to say no. We loved the atmosphere, it was just so peaceful and we absolutely loved the suites. Ours looked over a watering hole. I would definitely recommend to friends, it wasn't just a great safari, the over all experience just ended our trip to SA on a complete high.

Fantastic acommodation with lovely food and wine. Service was really good with the staff even going the extra mile to prepare a special last night for us as it was our last night in SA and last night of honeymooning - they had prepared a dinner for two in front of the fire in our private lodge, with the jacuzzi bath prepared (complete with rose petals in the foam) and a complimentary bottle of lovely Soth African sparkling wine and chocolates. The game drives were brilliant with a very knowlesgeable ranger who was keen to show us all that the reserve had to offer and we felt very well taken care of.

The overall experience of Bukela was wonderful. We enjoyed Deanne and the game drives. Food was excellent throughout the trip and the rest of the staff was very accommodating. There were a few minor maintenance issues that needed to be addressed with our room, but otherwise the room was excellent.
