I stayed three days at the Bakubung Game Lodge, the hotel was recently updated and was very modern. You are surrounded by a 360* electric fence. Within minutes of checking in we saw the residents monkey's. The game department was fantastic. Warden Peter One was amazing, he new his stuff and has been doing it for 20 years and is shows. The front desk knew us by name and was a pleasure and very accommodating. The rooms were very nice, the AC leaked a little bit on to the floor, but I think it was because we left it arctic in the room. Internet was free and fast, was able to make skype calls no problem. There is little to no cell service. There is not much to do by relax and enjoy nature as a Bush lodge should be, there is nothing close to the hotel so make sure you bring all that you need. Only complaint was the pool that was freezing, so we could not get in it. Food was wonderful and vast.

We spent two nights with our 2 daughters in a spacy room with two king size beds. The room had a shower, a tub, a fridge, coffee and tea facilities and a little terrace with furniture..

We especially enjoyed the fabulous breakfast and dinner buffet. We booked two safaris and particularly appreciate the tour with Oliver who is truly a great and informative ranger!
Great game reserve, we saw the big five and many more from very close!

I stayed in this bush lodge for 2 nights, the lodge provided 2 game drives with free shuttle bus to Sun City which is less than an hours drive from this lodge. internet is also free. room i stayed in was big enough & can accommodate a small family. food was good and vegetarian friendly. the best part of the stay was the game drives we were allotted a big van as our group was about 12 guests. the ranger was very friendly and knowledgeable. he had answers to every silly questions that we asked. the staffs wee friendly and overall i would rate this as a 4+* lodge.

We a group of six senior citizens from India touring South Africa, booked The Bakubung Bush Lodge, at Pilanesburg (near Sun-City) for Two nights from 15th to 17th Sept. 2011. This hotel is one of the Legacy group of hotels, well known for their business acumen in hospitality industry.
The reception took minimum time to check-in so that we could enjoy the four rooms on arrival. The staff is outstanding, very friendly prompt and accommodating. The rooms were spacious, clean & nicely decorated. We appreciate that the Hotel provides Complimentary Tea/coffee facility, with hot water kettle in each room! I credit the management to provide free mineral water in our rooms. The hotel provides a very nice spread for breakfast buffet - full English plus! Restaurant had great food options. Generally the staff is always ready to please and offer extra service with a smile. The housekeeping staff was great & not to forget a piece of chocolate every night.

Pilanesburg National Park has very small population of wild-life as compared to The Masai Mara & Lake Nakuru National Parks in Kenya or The Sarengeti & Ngorongoru in Tanzania in East Africa. The Bakubung Bush Lodge has a very beautiful layout & setting fully geared up for tourism! I strongly recommend to stay at The Bakubung Bush Lodge, at Pilanesburg, an experience which is worth its price.

Had a great time here at Pilanesberg National Park.
2 game drives were included in our 2 night stay. Saw spectacular wildlife, were very lucky to see Lions, Leopard, Elephants, Rhinos (4 of the big 5!) all up close - BOTH days!
Nice hotel, nice rooms - comfy bed, and nice view. Good buffets - plenty to choose from!
Nice pool - although was slightly too cold for a swim (but it was winter!).
