ACTIVITIES AT BUCKLANDS
Bucklands Private Game Reserve allows self-drives on the reserve to all clients overnighting at Bucklands Lodge. It is advisable to bring your own 2x4 or 4x4 if you wish to self drive on the reserve.
If you do not wish to self-drive on the reserve there is a guided game viewer option which comes at at additional R 2000 per game drive cost.
With 17km of Great Fish River frontage there is ample area to fish for Barbel, Carp, Mottled Eel or perhaps even a Yellow Fish. Bring your own kit or rent from us.
Book a night drive with us and there is a chance you may see a Porcupine, Aardvark or Aardwolf. Sightings of our local nocturnal creatures aren't guaranteed.
At Bucklands we have a bird list of over 240 bird species, ranging from the colourful Sun Birds, to the well travelled Steppe Buzzard, including a wide variety of waterbirds and thorn tree specialists. Our diverse vegetation provides a great habitat of all bird species, great and small.
Species at Bucklands
At Bucklands we have a species list of over 30 mammals, including the tall Giraffe, iconic Kudu, the dangerous Cape Buffalo, the minute Steenbuck and the majestic Sable, all of these which can be seen on the property, while self driving through the reserve, or with our guide on one of our game viewers.
When the moon is new and the sky is dark, the perfect place to view or photograph the night sky is on the Lodge lawn. With very little light pollution on the reserve, the stars will come alive at Bucklands!
