Buhala is an enchanting Game 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.

Golf at Leopard Creek is one of the privileges of guests at Buhala Game Lodge and the day safaris into the Kruger nearly always see at least 4 of the BIG FIVE. There is an "Outdoor spa" on a deck for massages, pedicures, manicures etc. Buhala is a marvelous place also, from which to explore the magical bush veldt, which gives you the realization of true Africa.

The Panorama route, God's Window right to the Blyde River Canyon is a wonderful day trip and both Swaziland and Mozambique are only an hour away.

BUHALA LODGE has fully air-conditioned double rooms.

  • The serene Elephant Suites are separate from the hotel and overlook the Crocodile River and Kruger Park. Each of these suites has their own verandah and share a splash pool.
  • Each Elephant Suite has an indoor and outdoor shower, as well as a bath in the bedroom in which to relax ... and with such a superb view into the Kruger you can watch the "wild" visitors at the river while you bath. Each suite has a bar fridge and tea and coffee facilities.
  • In the main building BUHALA LODGE has Balcony Rooms that overlook the Kruger Park and other double rooms.
