About Buhala Lodge

Buhala is an enchanting Lodge right on the banks of the Crocodile River, the border of the Kruger National Park. What a wonderful waterhole to have at the bottom of the garden! Elephant, buffalo, hippos and many antelope are just a few of the frequent visitors there.

Guests sitting on the verandah sipping sundowners or lazing around the pool have wonderful sightings of these fascinating animals. Fine food and wines are served on the deck under candlelight and the whole atmosphere is one of casual elegance and great comfort and tranquility.

Buhala is a marvelous place also, from which to explore the magical bushveld, which gives you the realization of true Africa.

I stayed at Buhala for two nights as pat of my 25th anniversary holiday. The weather was not great as a coldfronty hit the country together with rain. The atmosphere and hospitality however made up fro that. We had a great time and everyone made our stay memorable. The food was excellent. Truly recommendable and we will go there again .
