About Bukela Game Lodge

Treat yourself to a visit at Bukela Game Lodge. This 5 Star Game Lodge is situated in the malaria free Big 5 Amakhala Game Reserve, in the heart of the Eastern Cape, South Africa.

Accommodation

There are individually and luxuriously decorated double or twin suites all with their own private deck, en-suite bathrooms equipped with spa baths, and inside shower. Each unit has the added pleasure where you can enjoy a shower under the African sky in the private outdoor shower area. All chalets have air conditioners and under floor heating. A cozy log fire is situated in all chalets and a must for those chilly yet romantic relaxing winter evenings. A mini bar, snack and hot beverage facility is provided for your convenience.

Walk through your double doors onto your private deck to sip a cocktail and watch the wildlife and birds that are abundant in what feels like your very own riverine gulley. The elevated main lodge overlooks a sparkling pool set in Balau decking with an outlook towards the verdant scenery beyond. An open thatched lapa provides a comfortable shaded exterior lounge area. The main interior is spacious and comprises an open plan living and dining room set around an open circular fire place.

Fine Dining

All meals are freshly prepared by our resident chefs from only the finest ingredients. Bush breakfasts, picnics, lunches or dinners are always a delightful surprise. In the evening relax in the boma under the African stars and listen to the magical sounds of the night. After dinner participate in the interactive entertainment offered by our very own lodge staff in tune to the moving rhythm of African drums.

Honeymoons

Bukela is also a great venue to start a romantic honeymoon where you can enjoy private meals on your private deck with a bottle of your favourite wine in the peace and quiet of the surrounding wilderness.

We spent a wonderful weekend at Bukela on 25th Jan. What an absolute pleasure. Superb service, great staff, lovely venue for a relaxing weekend to unwind from the city rush - and close enough as less than 1 hour from PE. Highly recommended for a weekend getaway
