We stayed at the Boubou for 3 nights, and we were absolutely blown away by the wonderful and charming property & rooms, and the most wonderful hosts. Marnice is a fantastically warm and friendly lady who welcomed us and made us feel at home. We had dinner there for two nights, and my husband is still talking about the magnificent... More

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

Dear Ruth and Gary, Because of your review on TripAdvisor, we have received more bookings and it really carried us through a very difficult time during the terrible ANCU strike of 5 months ended in June. Thank you very much. Hope to see you again and would love to see your daughter getting bigger. Kind regards, Marnice and Jan-Piet 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.

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

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!
