I spent a week during March 2013 at the Bakgatla chalets. After reading some of the reviews on this website I was a bit apprehensive at first. so let's be honest, if you are someone who luxury and nothing else on your vacation trip, this venue is not for you. But if you want good value for money, it is perfect. The chalets are most adequately furnished and has DStv, an aircon both downstairs and upstairs and a good size fridge. The complaints about the lighting at the braai on the patio is nonsense as there is more than enough lighting. The braai areas as well as the chalets are cleaned perfectly every day and the staff even offer to wash the dishes after lunch. The water was also not a problem in the chalet during my stay. However, it does seem that there may be a problem with water as resort appeared very dry for the end of summer. Even the grass around the large pool was very dry. This is probably a municipal issue rather than a resort issue. If your main objective is to view animals in the game park I can definitely say that it is good value for money. If you spend the day at the resort, I would suggest that you consider other resorts too.
