Buhala Lodge is a colonial style thatch roof lodge situated on the Southern banks of the Crocodile River. The lodge provides amazing views over the Kruger National Park and members of the Big 5 are frequent visitors to our property. The owner-run lodge offers personal service and attention to detail and the unique opportunity to play golf at Leopard Creek Golf Course.

The lodge has fully air-conditioned large rooms with en-suite bathrooms. The two serene Elephant Garden Suites are separate from the hotel and overlook the Crocodile River and Kruger National Park. In the main building Buhala Lodge has Standard Rooms, as well as Kruger Park River Rooms and Kruger Park Balcony Rooms.

Meals are served either in the gracious dining room or under the stars and guests often watch buffalo, hippo and elephants and other wildlife while eating breakfast on the deck. Great game and bird watching from the veranda.
