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

We stayed at Bakgatla Camp site for one night in August 2013. Had our own roof top tent - so did not use the onsite chalets. Not a lot of people there which was nice. Ablution blocks were clean and had hot water. Campsite is cheap and basic, but suited our needs very well. One negative thing was the noise... More

Thank Goodness we stayed for only one night! The shower had no shower head, the bath was scratched and stained black and the showermat in tatters! The curtains were badly hung and fell off the rail. There was no cold water in the kitchen and the kettle did not work. At least I could boil water in a pot on... More

Stayed at this resort for a week in July 2013. We stayed in a five sleeper chalet which I found very old and very tired. This was not really a big problem for us as we were in the area to visit the Pilanesberg Game Reserve and spend most of each day away from the resort. The furnishings were barely... More

We stayed at chalets on our 2 days visit to Pilanesberg national park. It is situated just outside the game reserve. Check-in was bit messy. Resort staff denied our reservation and after lot of communication with travel agent we got our rooms. Our chalet was neat clean. It has a double bed & 3 single beds, TV, refrigerator, oven, small...
