    Had a wonderful time staying here. The rooms were very nice and clean. The game drives overall were great. We had one driver who wouldn't stop for anything and kept searching for cats that he never found. The other drivers were great and explained a lot of cool facts about the animals as well as the plants. Food was average.... More

    I have travelled to Bakubung Lodge for over 10 years. The timeshare units are top class, the recent refurbishment is great and the hotel and its facilities never fail to meet my expectations. Staff at reception have a good attitude and are williing to assist and go the extra mile. The proximity of Pilanesberg and the daily visits to the... More

    One of my new favorite hotels. You are warmly greeted when you arrive with a champagne glass full of a tasty nonalcoholic juice drink. The lobby is open, comfortable and relaxing. Beautiful dining room. Great service. Lovely rooms with patios or balconies. You do walk outdoors to get to your room and although the hotel has lighting, some spots on... More

    Sublime, Sensational, Superb! This has to be one of the most spectacular hotel/bush lodge in South Africa. The accommodation is fantastic. The food is out of this world, will have to buy a new wardrobe. The game drive is the best with knowledgeable and informative guides. The Pilanesberg National Park has it all. Can't wait to get back

    This was one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had. A few of my friends and I were in South Africa for a conference and wanted to do a safari after the conference. Someone recommended this place, and I'm glad they did. The accommodations were top notch. The game drives were great with informative drivers. We got to see... More

    We recently stayed at Bakubung Bush Lodge for 3 nights. We stayed as a family of 2 adults and 2 children, aged 10 and 12. My sister, her husband and her 2 children, aged 6 and 10 stayed in the room directly next to ours. We had initially planned on staying at one of the hotels at Sun City but... More

    We’ve just returned from a week at Bakubang, staying in a family unit of the lodge. The classily finished unit was clean and very comfortable with all of them having its own Weber braai, breakfast gas cooker and gas heater for colder evenings. Unit could include a sharp carving knive though as trying to use a bread knife to cut... More

    This hotel is what you would expect! The rooms are very nice and also the restaurant and the bar are both very cozy. The food is good but not great. There is a buffet available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The problem is that the selection is every day about the same. After two days we got tired on the... More
