Luxury bush break
Wow! Bukela Game Lodge is superbly appointed and set in the heart of the Amakhala Game Reserve. The camp isn’t fenced so you are immersed in all of the animal activity. Everything you would expect from a five star lodge and more. Your choice of a luxury tented unit or a beautiful lodge suite. Ideal getaway for couples or groups of adults. #gamelodge #southafricangamelodge #easterncape #easterncapetourism #easterncapetravel #wanderlustwednesday #fivestarrating #worthavisit #visitsouthafrica #southafricaatitsbest
Our first bush experience!
What an amazing and memorable time we had at Bukela for our first safari getaway! The team are a wonderfully friendly bunch who are always available to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible. Our ranger, Wonga, was great and provided us with the most incredible sightings and encounters! Even though many places have had to change the way they do things because of Covid, this did not hamper our experience in any way. Sanitiser is provided all over the lodge, and the vehicles are sanitised before and after every drive. All meals are ordered in advance, and plated and presented beautifully. You definitely won't go hungry! We stayed in one of the lovely luxury tents (#12, which had the best view!). The room comes with a fully-stocked tea/coffee station, and a minibar fridge with water and softdrinks etc. The bathroom has great views, and the shower has a sliding door that you can open for that "outdoor" feel. The bed is beyond amazing - the best sleep you'll ever have ! A huge thank you to everyone at Bukela! We hope to be able to visit you again very soon !
Excellent experience and game drives
My wife and I came to PE for a business trip and decided to extend our trip and stay over at Bukela Game Lodge. The overall experience from Sam, Thomas and Sune was amazing. They made us feel really welcome and right at home. Out game range Andrew Wostenholm was next level amazing and such a great guy. He took us on an amazing 2 hours tracking experience of the lions, explaining all the animal tracks we found along the way. Would highly recommend that you ask for Andrew when you come here.
An absolute treat!
My partner and I spent an incredible two days at Bukela Lodge, celebrating my birthday. It was the first time in months that we were able to have a holiday and even though everything was in place to keep us safe during the pandemic, it was an amazing escape from reality. We were so fortunate with our sightings on the game drives and our ranger was the most enthusiastic I have ever had the pleasure of driving with. The food was incredible - arrive hungry because you are going to want to finish every last morsel of deliciousness that they put in front of you. A luxury tent was our abode and WOW, glamping is the only word to describe it. Ask for a room that overlooks the watering hole, taking a hot bath while watching animals hydrate just outside of the tent is just incredible! Make the most of the South African citizen rates they are currently offering because for a fraction of the usual price you will get a first class experience. Thanks to all at Bukela, this was my favourite Eastern Cape game reserve experience to date.
The full experience!
We had the most memorable experience at this fantastic Nature Reserve & Lodge. From the moment we got there the staff were so friendly and welcoming and the service exceptional. We really enjoyed the food! Game drives were really professional and knowledgeable. They did their utmost best making it possible to see literally almost all of the animals on the reserve. Special shout out to our ranger, Andrew, who is excellent in what he does with a real love and passion for the animals and nature. Also a big thanks to Sam, who made our stay so special and memorable with your warm personality. It was heartwarming to see that you guys put so much work into the protection of those animals! Would definitely recommend Bukela!!!!!! 👌🏻
