We went camping here for our anniversary. It was out of season and is a lot quieter than Manyane camp which is catered more for families. Staff were incredibly helpful and went out of their way to help us, including maintenance, restaurant and front staff. Getting into the pilansberg park is a breeze as the gate is just next to...

My friends and I stayed here for two nights in January and thought it was excellent. We booked an executive safari tent and it was excellent! What a luxurious way to 'camp'. The staff were very friendly and helpful. A fantastic experience and a great place to stay and encounter everything that Pilanesberg had to offer.

Stayed in our timeshare chalet and had a good rest. We saw plenty of big game and wonderful animals and scenery on our daily trips from the Bakgatla Resort to the various water holes. The country side cries out for rain. Hope they had some in the meantime. We had no problems during our stay in our chalet with water... More

This is the 3rd time we have stayed in the Bakgatla chalets (5 sleeper). It appears as if there have been a few improvements since the last time we stayed, but they are still disappointing, especially for the price. We paid almost R2600 for the night! Breakfast (quite good) is included - I am not sure why since the chalets... More

My wife and I decided a camping trip to the Pilanesberg was in order so we headed to Bagkatla...the reception area is immaculate with friendly welcoming staff to take our booking, sadly that's were the warm feeling ended. The camp site is an absolute dump with old broken braais and rubbish bins scattered around the once pristine camping site. Its... More

We stayed in the 5 bedroom chalet @ R2250/night over the long weekend. Once rustic chalets now in shockingly non-maintained state. On arrival, no toilet paper in unit, only 2 glasses, 3 forks, 4 plates, etc, etc. Generally clean, but blinds in such a bad state, would be better just to remove them. Bathroom ceiling full of mould. No running... More

I was able to book a camping weekend at Bakgatla Camp on the internet. The service was fast and very efficient. The bathroom facilities at the camp is in a sad state. Often no hot water or even worse, no water at all. The camp sites have got little to no grass. So be prepared for a dusty or muddy... More

Only stayed for one night. Obviously a great place to stay when driving around the Pilanesberg park. Signage to chalet areas signposted, but small and not obvious. Downstairs bed was not made up, and no sheets/pillowcases available to do it ourselves. Screens on windows or doors would've been good. Three beds upstairs in the mezzanine loft - unbelievably hot during... More
