Bucklands Lodge opened its doors in 2010 after a much needed restoration. The homestead was thought to be erected in 1872 by Alf Buckley and still consists of the original green brick and a double storey stone fort with loopholes. This homestead has a long history, starting off as a family home in 1872, to a school from the mid-1960’s up until 1983, and a Lodge since 2010.
Bucklands Lodge is completely solar powered, offering 4 luxury double suites, all of which have modern en suite bathrooms. Each suite has been individually designed and has been classically furnished with the highest quality crisp linen and soft furnishings.
Bucklands Lodge has a comfortable sitting room, with other guest areas being the formal lounge and dining room, verandas and swimming pool offering majestic views over the rolling valleys all the way to the Hogsback, Gaika's Kop and the Winterberg in the distance. Game can also be viewed grazing on the plains from the comfort of the verandas.
There is much to see and explore on your stay at Bucklands and game drives through the reserve can be on a Self-Drive basis with your own 4x4 vehicle, or you can book a game drive with one of our guides.
