A wonderful time of rejuvenation
Thank you to Lion Roars and the incredible staff at Bukela for looking after my mum and I on our stay. From the moment you arrive, you realise this is a special place. From the warm greeting, the special, extra touches (hot drinks after a chilly game drive upon your return, your favourite tipple in the mini bar to name two) to the glorious food and setting- Bukela is a little slice of heaven on earth. Luxorious rooms with all the mod cons and an exemplary staff who feel like friends by the time you leave. We also loved how our ranger, Edson was so knowledgeable and clearly is an animal whisperer as we saw the Big 5 and so much more. The camp's commitment to conservation is truly inspiring and we left feeling our souls and hearts had been restored once more. Thank you Bukela.
Bukela Game Lodge
What an amazing Lodge. Couldn’t fault anything. The rooms were stunning, food was delicious, staff were friendly and the service was brilliant. We would have liked to have seen more game but just being in the bush was fantastic. Having a gym near the pool would make this place even better.
Best bush escape
Bukela was amazing from the time we arrived until after we got home. No request was too much for the well trained and attentive staff. We loved that we were assigned our own ranger (Wonga) for the 4 days we were there. Wonga was a wealth of knowledge and never failed to find great game for us to view. He built our morning and afternoon game drives around our needs and by day 2 knew already knew which drinks we all favoured from morning Amarula coffee to G&T or beers. We can't thank Wonga enough for being such a wonderful ranger. Meals were amazing. We all loved the menu choices but if we wanted something that wasn't on the menu, it was never a problem to produce it. The food was all really delicious and well prepared. Every member of staff was amazing from Elvis (Hlosi manager) to Nollie who spent hours playing with our children to Siya who cheerfully provided a constant supply of G&T. This was a trip never to forget. I did not want to leave. Then we left our car keys in the safe and the lodge even made a plan to get them back to Cape Town for us. Well done Bukela and Hlosi and the who team from Lion Roars. We'd love to come back
Tranquility in the bush
Wonderful breakaway! Close to Port Elizabeth. Quiet and peaceful. Abundant game on excellent game drives(Thanks Andrew, he has excellent knowledge on birds!). Accommodation in a large tent. All amenities including heated beds, fireplace and aircon. Odwa and the Chef Sine - delicious food and great service all round. Highly recommended!
