Precies wat we wilden!

Posted 1-Dec-2014
Heerlijk en hartelijk verblijf. Alles was keurig geregeld en van super kwaliteit. Ons verblijf was inclusief heerlijk ontbijt (buiten in de zon aan de rand van de omheinde kraal waar dieren komen), diner en twee game-drive's (safari ritten van 3 uur). Ook hebben we na 1 van de safari's het diner gebruikt in de vorm van Bush Braai, midden in een super gezellige plek in het wild park. Al met al meer dan waar we op hoopten en dan we hadden verwacht. Enige puntje was dat er druk gebouwd werd aan extra panden om het zwembad. Maar om eerlijk te zijn: het was ook vermakelijk om naar te kijken. We hebben genoten!

Stay away from this hotel

Posted 17-Nov-2014
Pros: the location
Cons: service from the whole staff
I paid 300 euro for a room for one night. The hotel is under renovation, when we arrived at the hotel at 2pm for the check-in they gave us the worst room, the one located right next to the renovation part and the workers, even the doorstep of our room was dirty. I called the reception to complain, they asked us to come and see what they could do. When we arrived the lady at the reception did not apologize for the annoyance and proposed another room, I asked her if it would be less noisy, she said it they were renovations all over the hotel so she couldn't confirm. She was neither nice nor polite, she gave me attitude! Her manager behind her saw what happened and came to deal with me right away. He told her to take me to the new room to check if it was good for me. The new room was not noisy at all, there was absolutely no renovations nearby, I still don't understand why they gave us the worst to start with. I asked, if this was a current practice for them: try to give the worst rooms first. About the overall service, the staff never greeted us. At the restaurant, the waiters and cooks were just doing the minimum, no smile, no good evening, no politeness whatsoever. At the pool bar, where you can get the towels, they told me to get the towels myself (I'm 5 months pregnant). The pool is smaller than I expected. The high price is just due to the location not because of the service or the rooms.

One of the best

We just stayed there for one night and did two game drives (afternoon and in the morning). Though my son was allergic to milk, we had no issues as the staff was very helpful and went out of their way to help accommodate. Food was fantastic, facilities were incredible. Highly recommended.

Schöne Lodge in guter Lage im Pilanesberg Park

Posted 16-Sep-2014
Pros: Die Anlage mit Blick über den Park
Cons: Qualität des Essens. Zur Zeit unseres Aufenthalts leider große Baustelle
Location: Game Tours oder alleine durch den Pilanesberg Park
Gute Location für Tours im Pilanesberg Park. Schöne Lage im Park und vopn Sun City aus gut zu erreichen. Essen leider nur mittelgut

Bakubung

Posted 23-Aug-2014
This is a really lovely lodge but unfortunately there is major building work going on at the moment near the pool by the family rooms. We were moved to a quiet block but had to pay for another room for the children because we could not all fit in to the new room. The manager gave us an excellent price after some haggling. Would highly recommend just don't stay in a family room until work complete and make sure you get a room away from proposed new Spa area when you book.

Posizione meravigliosa all internio della riserva

Posted 20-Aug-2014
Pros: Posizione e servizio impeccabile
Location: Ottima posizione e organizzazione fantastica . Ogni giorno 2 safari organizzati dalla struttura
Esperienza fantastica in un luogo speciale. Da tutte le camere e' ben visibile una pozza dove si vanno ad abbeverare gli animali che normalmente durante tutto il giorno li puoi vedere. Giornalmente organizzano due safari uno al mattino e uno al pomeriggio e sono veramente belli. Il menù a buffet e' ricchissimo e molto buono . Consiglio a tutti coloro che voglio passare qualche giorno a contatto con la natura questo posto. Numero 1.

2hr from Johannesburg

Posted 20-May-2014
Pros: Location, staff, food, bar. Tour is amazing and honestly if you are in JB for the weekend and want to see something other than a hotel room, go
Cons: N/a
We went to Bakubong Lodge from JB for the weekend. Initially we went into Sun City (next door - 5km) for a look but way to plastic for our liking. Booked online at the Sun City Gates and went to the Lodge. Lodge is inside a game reserve / national park. Price included breakfast, dinner and a safari tour. Beds comfortable, room was great, views into the bush. Staff super friendly. Food was great. Tour - we saw 4 of the big 5, and had an amazing time

Excellent Choice for Pilanesberg

Posted 20-Apr-2014 on Hotels.com
Booking through Hotels.com was convenient and the best price we found for the resort after checking many websites. The standard room impressed us both as the furnishings, draperies and fabrics were of quality. The bathroom could be opened up to the bedroom by louvered doors if you wish. There is a separate shower and tub and the room was 'spotlessly' clean. The building we were in is 2 stories with rooms on the ground floor offering a terrace and the rooms above a balcony. We found the breakfast and dinner buffet that was included, to be very good, fresh ingredients, simple food but very tasty given the volume produced and location of the resort. We were pleased as the restaurant exceeded our expectations - no complaints. Bottom line we were happy we chose Bakubung, very much enjoyed our 3 night visit and would definitely return.
