The area is in the grip of a severe drought, but the accommodation is cool and comfortable, and the pool very welcome. Birdlife, usually prolific in this area, was somewhat scarce because of the drought. Small-spotted genets are known to become very confiding and tame around sites like these and we had one visiting every evening. A greater bushbaby also...

Burchells is perfectly positioned for trips to Kruger, being only a few hundred metres from the gate. Comfortable lodges, with a full service of the chalet everyday. Enjoyable swimming pool. Welcome visits from monkey and meerkats

Had three nights here as part of a package tour. Great food in the restaurant and the boma. Entertained one evening by local song and dance troupe. Great to relax and view some of the wildlife from the bar and viewing platforms. Rooms clean and beds comfortable. Also a small shop (no tat). The proximity to Kruger gate meant that...

A very enjoyable week. Amenities more than adequate. Staff very friendly and visible. Chalet was clean and neat. A pleasure to be close to nature with hours of peace. The bar and lookout deck at the hotel was the ideal place to relax and view.

My family and I were lucky to get a week at Burchell's Bush Lodge through RCI in July. Check-In was easy and we were assisted to our chalet by two very helpful porters. The chalet was large, clean and well-equipped. Apart from the strong smell of cigarette smoke in the guest room it was perfect. Guests should note that Burchell's...

Burchell's is conveniently located at the Paul Kruger gate which makes access to the Kruger National Park a breeze. Save for its location, there is not much that is worth noting about Burchells. The accommodation is fairly average. The walls a paper-thin and you can hear what's going on in the bedroom and toilets next to your room. The outside...

We have been to burchells a number of times and continue to enjoy it! I love that it is so close to the gate and within its own small private reserve. There are a number of buck and zebra in the camp enjoying the peaceful surrounds. The accommodation is very comfortable and well kept. If you are like me you...

Great self catering accommodation right at the Paul Kruger Gate. Highly recommended. The cottage was fully serviced and the appointments in the house were good. Need to remove the bush babies in the ceiling as kept us awake some nights.
