    Excellent food!”
    We stayed 4 nights for two rooms. We requested ground floor in advance by email as kids were young but when checked in, only allocated us to first floor. So we need to move again the other day. Except this unsatisfied experience, the catering service is excellent so we always stay in the lodge for lunch and dinner. Location is not easy to find especially after 6 pm it’s hard to find the way there as it’s very discrete location around 15 mins away from Sun city. While overall the lodge is a nice experience for safari around.

    Thank you!”
    I really enjoyed everything at Bakubung for the most part. That said, some pieces of feedback: - The morning game drives should leave earlier (around 6am) and should last longer. They should also come with a packed breakfast. - The field guides should focus on educating about the animals more. - There should be free unlimited wifi. This is essential in this day and age.
    Reviewed May 30, 2018
    Dear Melissa, Thank you for the above review. In terms of the Game drive times, we go out later in winter as it is far to cold and still dark at 6am. Breakfast options on a Game drive would also be limited and therefore we opt for guests to enjoy the full spread at the Lodge. I have shared your comments with our Head Ranger and he has noted your concerns. "The people of the Hippo" all look forward to welcoming you back to Bakubung soon.

    Excellent lodge in need of a little maintenance”
    The lodge is beautifully situated with a U-shaped layout of hotel rooms, and self-catering chalets overlooking the reserve. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent and a wide variety. The rooms were clean but showing their age in a few places. Comparatively it is a good value versus some of the smaller more exclusive lodges within the park who are fancier but cost double the price.

    Magical location for Bakabung Bush Lodge”
    This was our 3rd or 4th visit to Bakabung Bush Lodge, staying 4 nights this time with another couple. The location, service and facilities were perfect for our main reason for being there from the UK, that is to see the animals in Pilanesberg National Reserve. Our lodges were perfectly location, staff friendly and welcoming. The game drives were fantastic and we never tired of going out with the rangers and also in our hire vehicle. Food at Bakabung was excellent and the pool a welcome break between the game drives, though a bit noisy at times with children and adults having fun! Understandable. We didn't use the spa facilities. A friendly member of staff arranged for our very dusty vehicle to be thoroughly cleaned before we left. I sincerely hope this won't be our last visit to Bakabung and the magical Pilanesberg.

    Great game viewing break!”
    Great game drives with very knowledgeable rangers - saw 4 of the big 5, plus lots more besides! Hotel rooms in block 3 overlooking the hippo pool very comfortable and in good condition, but some (not all) of our group’s rooms in block 5 overlooking the swimming pool had issues (noisy air conditioning, damp smell and poor water pressure). Buffet dinners and breakfasts were top class! Staff very friendly and overall service levels good. We will return!

    Bakubung and Legacy Hotel Group herald the dining at this location. They are quite right so to do. The food is really quite good. If you can get a seat on the brick patio which affords diners a view of the lawn, it is the best. I particularly enjoyed bird watching.
