    We can highly recommend Bakubung for a family or couples weekend away. It is value for money. The food is superb, the service excellent and the facilities 5 star. We enjoyed the game drive and the ranger was very knowledgable. We will definitely be back.

    I called ahead, but it wasn't needed. Just confirm the assembly times--based on sunrise/sunset--and sign up at the hotel.

    The lodge has an airport shuttle. Email the lodge to ask if game drives are included in the booking rate- I paid extra for my game drives but was worth it.
