Only stayed for two nights with my daughter and we still had the most awesome time.
The chalet was exceptional and each of us had a huge bed. The room was very extremely clean and well furnished and much larger than we originally thought. Breakfast and dinner was included and the food, which was buffet style, was really great with such a huge selection of different foods available. Service of the staff was at all times friendly and accommodating. A game drive a day was also included which was awesome, and with the guides always in touch with each other, we were able to have wonderful sightings of Lion, Hippo, Rhino, Elephant, Hyena, Giraffe and Jackal as well as all the usual buck and warthog. The guide was very knowledgeable and extremely passionate about the bush. all in all a trip to remember and will definitely be back.

I had the pleasure of staying at Bakubung for one night at the end of a trip around SA. I was desperate to see some animals and so booked with a local tour guide through Mmilo tours.

The lodge was fantastic. A very high quality of room and service from the staff with a fabulous buffet dinner and breakfast with almost too much food and too many choices.

My trip was totally made by a guide named Jared. Having realised that the morning game drive was just going to be me and him, he offered the chance to go for a walk instead. Walking through the game park into areas you cannot access from the road and learning truly about the habits of these animals was awesome. My heart was beating quite fast when we crept up towards a female white rhino and her calf but he was confident and reassuring throughout.

A completely fantastic experience - I would and will recommend to everyone I know.
Thanks!!!

We spent a week end at Bakubung and must say we were impressed with the standards being maintained and all the improvements made. The staff are welcoming , friendly and always willing to go the extra mile for the guests. we had a wonderful few days in the Pilansberg Reserve and had some awesome sightings.

Room Tip: Hippo pool chalet is a must

We spent 3 nights in the Hotel and the service and food was fantastic. Bakabung was brilliant. Thanks to game ranger Jarred who persistently kept on looking for the lions until he found 4 of them for us to see and enjoy :) 

Room Tip: we enjoyed room 522

Bakubung is my premium game park destination. One is guaranteed to see a multitude of game in the Pilanesberg Reserve right on ones doorstep and fortunately there is no malaria. The staff at Bakubung are all exceptionally friendly and helpful , the accomodation is excellent . We did self catering . but the restaurant looked very inviting. Game drives are offered and the guides are very knowledgable and can offer other travel advice. I cant wait to return to Bakubung !
