The Boubou B&B near Rustenburg is a very cosy and wonderful place to stay. The owners Marnice and Jan Piet really made us feel at home and did everything to make us feel comfortable. The location is a good spot to explore Pilanesberg NP and Hartbeesport Dam and the great house with its beautiful garden and nice pool invites to... More

Having booked BouBou based on the consistently excellent reviews from others on TripAdvisor we were most definitely not disappointed. A long weekend stay for our little family of three to escape the city and enjoy the countryside and nearby Pilanesberg was just perfect. Marnice and Jan Piet made us feel so welcome, the facilities are excellent, the garden beautifully maintained... More

This was our 3rd stay at the Boubou and is now a firm favourite whenever we visit South Africa. We spent every day in the Pilanesberg and also paid a visit to Sun City. Marnice, Jan-Piet and their staff provide such a warm welcome, offering great flexibility and consideration that encompassed picnic lunches, a game drive & bush walk (Jan-Piet's... More

Having recently stayed at the BouBou B&B during a 3 week business trip to Rustenburg I would happily recommend it to anyone. Situated amidst the African bush tranquillity and peace is high on the agenda. The owners Marnice and Jan Piet made us feel so welcome it was like a home from home!

We stayed at the B&B for several days and enjoyed all of them. After the rushing around of Cape Town and Johannesburg, it was great to sit back and enjoy some solitude. The B&B is situated close to Sun City, Pilanesburg Game Reserve, and Rustenburg so that it makes a great base of operations. Marnice and her staff made every... More

Staying at BouBou with the owners Marnice and Jan Piet will give you the perfect holiday experience. We visited the lodge in April for a few nights and last week we returned for one night, because we wanted to experience it once again before heading back to Europe. Location: The place is great and luxurious, but the view of the... More

Marnice and her husband Jan are fantastic hosts- very gracious and welcoming. My husband and I stayed for 4 nights in April 2013 and were fortunate to be the only guests here. There are very few rooms all sharing a short hallway--if they were at capacity it may feel a bit claustrophobic for some, but we had lots of privacy... More

On the way to Pilanesberg we stopped over for a night at the BouBou Guesthouse. What a stunning place! Marnice made the best choice for us, the room was wonderful with huge windows overlooking the gardens - her cooking is delightful and she is a perfect host, makes you feel safe and in good hands. She made us feel very... More

Boubou was tucked away, peaceful and beautiful. We received a very warm welcome just in time to see the sunset over the plains. The B&B was gorgeous, amazing rooms, swimming pool, a covered viewing / seating area high up for amzing views. We were well equipped for our own braai dinner and were treated to a fabulous breakfast at 5am!... More
