    “3 nights at Bakubung in the Pilansberg”

    The Pilanesberg Reserve stretches over 55,000 hectares. It does not have massive herds of a game like the Kruger, but over 3 days and 6 game drives, we managed to see many elephants, black rhino, white rhino, 2 prides of lion, a rare karakul, cheetah and lots of general game which is pretty impressive.  One can either hire a private vehicle or book for the game drive at 5:30 am or 4:30 pm. These vehicles are large to accommodate numerous guests. The seating arrangements for the guests are non specific. We recommend you arrive early to avoid disappointment.  There are toilet stops during the drive at specific hides and drinks are offered to the guests, bring your wallets. The Bush Braai is one of the most enjoyable experiences on a Saturday night at a specific area in the bush. Potjiekos served in abundance. This promises to be a memorable adventure and an enjoyable experience.

    “Wonderful, Superb”

    I spent 2 nights at Bakubung and the experience was outstanding. It is my first visit to Bakabung, having stayed at other lodges in the Pilanesberg, and this hotel is by far the best in the park. The hotel has an amazing location close to the Bakabung gate, making access easy and convenient. Checkin was a breeze, the welcome was warm, the room was excellent, the amenities perfect, the welcome note and gift basket a very warm touch, the dinner buffet was excellent and breakfast was very good. A special thanks to Muzo for a brilliant early morning game drive. I can’t wait to be back. Very highly recommended!

    “Magical place for kids and adults”

    So many positives about this lodge. The rooms are traditional, cozy African style decor – 2 double beds – so great for families. The buffets were exceptional – both breakfast and dinner were amazing – kids just didn’t know what section to eat at first. The wine was very reasonably priced, and staff were happy to save the bottle for me for the next night, (single mum – couldn’t drink a whole one). The game drives were fab – had John 4 times and Steve once – they were so knowledgeable and made it all beyond exciting. Amy and Gill did great stuff with the kids – snake talk, junior ranger walk and giraffe hoof plaster cast. The kids loved the trampoline and playground – we don’t play tennis – but courts there looked good. Negatives – only 2 really. The pool was icy cold – but this was winter and I am guessing an eco-lodge wouldn’t want to waste energy heating a pool. The other is direction signs to the lodge are poor – we got very lost. Minor things though – I defy anyone not to love this place, and we will definitely return.

    “Great time at Bakubung Bush Lodge”

    I had an excellent stay at the Bakubung Bush Lodge. Although it was only for one night I can say that my stay and my room was excellent. The room was very luxurious and peaceful. I had an excellent stay, with an incredibly beautiful view  My view of that little lake at the Game Reserve. The best moment was an early morning gazing to the lake from the veranda. Very serine and beautiful. We toured the Game Reserve during the day and experienced the encounter with Elephant, Rhino, Hypo, Hyena, Wildebeest and plenty of other interesting animals. We were looking for Loin but we weren’t lucky enough to find on this trip.  They say there are Lion in the park. The  Restaurant offers a lovely touch where one can indulge in delicious foods. The Conference Room and facilities are available, very professional and beautiful, should you need to use such facilities.. Bakubung Bush Lodge is Eco Friendly and conscious of respecting the environment. In short, we had a great time.
