Great game lodge, poor food and service ”

Great safari and very spacious and comfortable room, however the poor food and service was a big let down. Close to nothing to eat for vegetarians and vegans. Staff are inattentive and confused. Got to witness spectacular sightings of the wild animals. Ryan was a great Ranger.

Disappointing stay”

We were really excited for this « 5 star » hotel/safari. I have done several luxury safaris in the past and Bukela doesnt even compare. I dont undwrstand how they are rated 5 stars. The staff, drives and animals are great but the hotel itself is more a 3 star lodge. The food was mediocre and the facilities were not clean. There were several oil stains on the kitchen napkins and we even had stains on our pillowcases. The bathroom is horrible too especially since we didnt have water on our last day. Save your money and stay somewhere else.
