    From the moment we arrived we were welcomed as if we were family. Marjie and Erica were fabulous and the entire staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and well fed. From our room we watched crocodiles and hippos enjoying the river, an elephant visited the riverbank, kudus and bushbuck were everywhere. We enjoyed wonderful massages in a tent overlooking the Crocodile River and Sean, the guide took us on a wonderful tour of the panorama route. This is a lovely spot with wonderful staff.

    Nice safari lodge facing the river and KNP

    We had a wonderful weekend stay at Buhala Lodge. Breakfast and dinner were tasty and served in the dinning room which opens into the garden and to the crocodile river. Beautiful location near the Malelane gate. The lodge offers golf in the surrounding courses and safari drives in the KNP. We were extremely happy with our stay
