Christmas at Bakabung (although you wouldn't know

Posted 29-Dec-2014
Pros: The rooms are nice and well serviced The game drives are good
Cons: The evening meals very disappointing Expensive for what it was
Location: Set in the beautiful countryside of Pilansberg Very close and easy access to Sun City
The positives are nice comfy room, the pool is nice, the Game Drives good, breakfast plenty of choice and good quality. and the guides informative and friendly Not so good - we went over Christmas but nothing special was laid on, evening meals were a disappointment , the same food every night and the meat always overcooked.The last game drive was in the rain and we were looking forward to the coffee stop we did stop (not sure why as we then drove straight back to the lodge) but no coffee

おすすめです。

Posted 20-Dec-2014 on Hotels.com
子どもがいるので夕食と朝食がビュッフェなのはとてもよいです。しかもおいしいです。我が家は、サファリとともに、ここのビュッフェも楽しみにして行きました。 バスルームはお湯がしっかりと出て、家族5人がしっかりとシャワーを浴びることができる上、湯船にお湯をためて入浴できるのは南アフリカではとても有り難く、嬉しいです。5つ星のホテルでも、途中でお湯切れになるということがこの国ではあるので。 ゲームカーが宿泊費に含まれているのもよいです。 ピラネスバーグの入り口の立地というのも便利でよいです。 ということで、我が家はバクブング・ブッシュ・ロッジを気に入り、リピートで利用しました。 余談ですが、木に吊る下がった天候予測の石なるものがあるので、その説明の看板をぜひ読んでみてください。面白いです。

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!

Wildlife gepaart mit Baumaßnahmen

Posted 24-Nov-2014 on Hotels.com
"Offiziell" bis Ende November finden in der Hotelanlage umfangreiche Erweiterungsmaßnahmen statt, die u.a. den Aufenthalt am Pool massiv beeinträchtigen. Insofern war es auch nicht möglich, das Resorts wie in Südafrika üblich sauber zu halten.Zu empfehlen sind die Game-Drives.

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

Posted 8-Nov-2014
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.

Gute Alternative im Pilanesberg NP

Posted 5-Oct-2014 on Hotels.com
Alle Hotels im Pilanesberg Park und anderen Nationalparks sind sehr teuer, das muss jedem bewusst sein bei der Buchung. Die Bakubung bietet auf dieser Basis ein gutes Preis Leistungsverhältnis. Die Gebäude sind etwas älter, die Zimmer aber komfortabel. Aktuell, bis November 2014, vielleicht auch etwas länger wird gebaut. Die Belastung ist aber gering. Frühstück und Halbpension gibt es als Buffet und das ist ok. Mit etwas Glück kann man mit Uassicht auf Gnus, Zebras und Elefanten frühstücken. Super sind die meist enthaltenen Game Drives. Das sollte man unbedingt bei dem Preis betrachten, denn solche Fahrten kosten normalerweise extra. Positiv sind mir auch die humanen Nebenkosten, wie Getränke beim Essen aufgefallen, da sind viele andere Hotels sonst unverschämt.

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
