Our stay was oké but we expected more from the hotel. I think it is overpriced for wat you get. Soap, coffee in the room was not restocked. Not even after asking three times! WiFi not zo good. Snacks in the room were thrown away (which was strange because it was mine). Be warned for the monkeys at the pool.... More

Stayed one night during business trip break. I expected a lot for the price I paid but was disappointed. Check-in was confusing and the clerk put the wrong charge on my credit card. At check-out an attempt was made to charge me twice for my stay. The room was large and well furnished with a nice French Window onto the... More

Bakubung Bush Lodge really is a wonderful place to get away from it all. The time share chalets are very well appointed. They have everything anyone could want for and they have been very nicely refurbished. The daily cleaning service was very good. Being in the Pilensberg Game Reserve is fabulous - you get a permit for the length of... More

Just spent three days at this resort. Both my wife and 7 year old son said this was the most amazing trip ever. The staff was very helpful with all needs and the food was a lot more than I ever expected. Although game reserve is hit or miss with animals, our driver Lizzy did a fantastic job finding the...

The Bacubung lodge doesn't disappoint from the entrance gate on the way in until you leave. We saw our first elephant on the road up to check in. The staff are all pleasant. Attentive and friendly. Rooms are well appointed and the views are lovely. All of them have views of the swimming pool or the hippo pool. You can... More

OK to be clear the 5 stars is for the location not the actual lodge. But the location is so amazing I could have stayed in a tent with a pit hole dunny - and I would still give it 5 stars. You are considering this hotel as you want to do a safari - the biggest mistake you can... More

Overall this was an excellent stay. The facilities were well appointed, although there was some construction in progress. The food was excellent, and the opportunities to visit the wildlife in the park was exceptional, and the drivers were excited to give us a great experience. The park was small but full of wonderful wildlife. The service level in the facilities... More

First time to a game reserve and this place delivered. Nothing to compare with, but as a party of 7, we spent 3 great nights at this Lodge. Excellent game drives, a memorable game walk which no-one will ever forget as we encountered a white Rhino which had just given birth. Accomodation was good, very clean and modern. Food was... More

We had our first visit to Bakubung Bush Lodge for a 4 night stay and it was great! The place is beautiful, with the restaurant overlooking the watering hole. We saw so many beautiful animals. Went on a game drive and saw lion, rhino, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, hippo, zebra, jackal and lots of antelope. The restaurant is great and food... More
