Property Description

BUHALA is quite magical – it is so beautifully situated with wonderful views all around. One way faces the green fields of the working farm and the mountains and the other (most sort after) faces the Crocodile River and the Kruger Park but we are on a particularly beautiful bend of the river and I know it is one of the most beautiful places of the world – there are many and we are blessed to be one of them. Apart from this, elephant, buffalo, hippos and different buck are regular visitors to our front acre as we have no fence between ourselves and the Kruger Park. Of course, across the river we see a great variety, specially rhinos daily and often giraffe, lion, kudu etc. It is a lovely old colonial style building, very comfortable, spacious rooms with generous bathrooms and free standing showers in each as well as the bath. We have a good reputation for excellent food and interesting wines and happy, friendly service. We do safaris into the Kruger on open vehicle with qualified rangers and usually see at least 4 of THE BIG FIVE each trip. ( We are only 1 hours from both Swaziland and Mocambique making day trips there easy, either self-drive or organised by ourselves. GOLF – the greatest thing, our guests have access to Leopard Creek golf course: a special privilege for me as I am a member there. We can also offer night drives in the Kruger Park and early morning walks with rangers (armed) which take place inside the Kruger Park. BUHALA GAME LODGE is a winner of the COUNTRY HOTELS category in THE WORLD LUXURY HOTEL AWARDS!!! The AA BEST ACCOMMODATION AWARDS also awarded us WINNER for the SMALL RETREATS category.
