Wonderful stay with great Experience!!!”

Beautiful lodge is well located, good food with multiple choices, friendly and professional staffs, and impressive Game Drive. We chose to stay at Bakubung Bush Lodge is because our friends are celebrated his birthday there. The room we had was beautiful and comfortable, except the minibar was empty? We had an unforgettable evening at the Bush Braai but we have to leave at 20:30pm, which is too soon and that we could not fully appreciate our evening by the fire. Lizzy, the Guide/Ranger was amazing, she gave us a fantastic Game Drive that we never experience. She knew where animals and explained their behaviors are. We had a chance and took a great video shooting lions chasing after a hyena, it was amazing!!! Kabelo at the Front Desk was professional, he took care of us since our arrival until our departure. We had a memorable stay. We are looking very forward to our next stay at the Bakubung Lodge!

Magical location for Bakabung Bush Lodge”

This was our 3rd or 4th visit to Bakabung Bush Lodge, staying 4 nights this time with another couple. The location, service and facilities were perfect for our main reason for being there from the UK, that is to see the animals in Pilanesberg National Reserve. Our lodges were perfectly location, staff friendly and welcoming. The game drives were fantastic and we never tired of going out with the rangers and also in our hire vehicle. Food at Bakabung was excellent and the pool a welcome break between the game drives, though a bit noisy at times with children and adults having fun! Understandable. We didn't use the spa facilities. A friendly member of staff arranged for our very dusty vehicle to be thoroughly cleaned before we left. I sincerely hope this won't be our last visit to Bakabung and the magical Pilanesberg.

Most Memorable Weekend of our Lives”

The food at the restaurant was amazing and was good value for money! The game drive was spectacular in the morning. We saw 3 of the BIG 5 as well as plenty other wildlife. Our rooms were comfortable!

We loved our stay at Bakubang Bush Lodge. It really was an incredible and memorable stay. The staff service was very accommodating and friendly. We loved our room and felt right at home. The food at the restaurant was amazing. The wildlife within the camp was also a sight to see. I was so excited to see the elephant walking by the waterhole in the chalets. The morning game drive was so awesome! We saw 3 of the BIG 5 and plenty other wildlife. I used this weekend to propose to my girlfriend and it really was a special place to do so. We are so happy to be engaged and happy that I did it at a special place like Bakubang Bush Lodge. It was a memorable weekend that we will never forget!

The most amazing place ”

You first notice the staff are very welcoming. The rooms are wonderful and very well provided with robes, toiletries, refreshments. Don’t forget the waterhole cam channel on the TV. Buffet food for breakfast and dinner - exceptional choice and quality. But the highlight is the amazing bush drives - three hours of intoxicating drives through the beautiful Pilanesberg park with knowledgeable guides and amazing animals. We saw four of the big five plus countless others. My highlight was the elephants walking up the road right in front of us. Awesome.

Lovely Hotel”

Bakubung is a lovely hotel. It has a water hole just opposite the dining room so you can watch animals come and go. The room includes a game drive which you must book in advance with reception. The food is good without being great. Limited vegetarian choices and rather lacking in imagination eg pasta and pesto. I would have loved some African choices. There is no gym but there is a spa. The rooms are nice and comfortable and it is a good idea to request a balcony which overlooks the water hole. The walls are a little thin as the crying baby next door could be heard loud and clear from my room. All in all a great place and I would stay here again.

The hippo pond, Safari and drivers, room/grounds

We had a great stay although the front desk was not helpful in getting us a taxi or driver to take us into see some towns. And the shuttle said every 1/2 hr or something, and was not. We felt stuck.. Did do the Safaris and loved that and learned different things from different drivers, that was wonderful! Your Lodge is fantastic but need to offer your guest more to do outside of the Lodge. Your photos did make it seam we would be staying on the hippo pond... As we found they were Time Share units. Our room was amazing! 524..... Thanks for everything, most your staff were amazingly friendly... Would highly recommend IF you offered service outside your Lodge. Thanks so much for the experience we had..

Beautiful weekend break. Rooms were beautiful, clean and comfortable. Food was delicious. Daily breakfast was more than you could wish for with waffles and pancakes too. The resort was COVID compliant from check in to check out. The game drives were a wonderful escape and we saw so many animals. The morning game drive was our favorite but I must say that having a good game ranger makes all the difference. Steve was our ranger and he was excellent- I would recommend him. The bush dinner was an amazing experience too. We also played some tennis which was very fun and spent the day by the pool. Thank you Bakabung for a wonderful weekend. We loved every minute and it was just what we needed. We will definitely be back 😊🍃

Surprisingly amazing”

Having been asked to contact the hotel directly after booking, to confirm arrival time and book in game drive, I sent several emails to the hotel over a 5 month period with NO response. This made me feel uneasy about going there and not getting a game drive or dealing with unprofessional staff who can't be bothered responding. BUT once I got to the resort all was forgotten....... staff were all friendly and helpful. Offered game drive options and booked us in. Room was spacious and comfortable. Resort was lovely. Dinner buffet and breakfast buffet were BOTH sensational. Cannot believe how amazing the resort was. Pleased with stay... and highly recommended!!!!!

Excellent food!”

We stayed 4 nights for two rooms. We requested ground floor in advance by email as kids were young but when checked in, only allocated us to first floor. So we need to move again the other day. Except this unsatisfied experience, the catering service is excellent so we always stay in the lodge for lunch and dinner. Location is not easy to find especially after 6 pm it’s hard to find the way there as it’s very discrete location around 15 mins away from Sun city. While overall the lodge is a nice experience for safari around.

Very close to the Pillanesberg Park. The Lodge is an interesting option for first time Safari. The rooms are clean and comfortable, nice view of the lake where animals come to drink water (we saw elephants in the late afternoon). They offer a great breakfast, also included dinner, with great options of food. Prepare to pay a lot of tips, not only there, in the country in general.

Expensive and mediocre food”

Accomodation was good, however standard of the food is extremely poor. Your Chefs love to cook with lots of oil, food was almost always swimming in it. Meat cuts were extremely tough with lots of sinew. Highly processed cheese as opposed to natural healthy type cheeses. Style of cooking is very 1960's, Bakubung have clearly not keep up with the times, people are looking for healthy options these days. Most disappointing was the "pass the buck" attitude of reception assistants and mgmt, to issues raised around bookings with a non Bakubung Hotel office. Problem is passed right back to you, attitude is "you booked with so and so, contact them to resolve the issue". These are your sales channel, why do you treat customers differently when they book via these channels. Resolving the issue (providing phone no. is not solving the problem, passing the buck) would be the right thing to do. I have been a loyal customer of the Group, I will think 2x in future.

Safe didn't work. Photos on the site were not a representation of what the facilities looked like. Rooms were dark inside. Staff were not friendly at all and I had to greet first everytime. Bush drives were punctual, but lack of communication from driver/guide. Game drive finished at 20:00 - so 3.5 hours not 3. No snacks provided by Bakubung at the stop half way through, while all other hotels had snacks and drinks. Food was good. For this price, based on the accommodation, I expected better quality.
