Bakubung Bush Lodge – Luxury accommodation set within the Pilanesberg, where a place of breath-taking beauty and serenity lies. Bakubung Bush Lodge is concealed within the rich expanses of the malaria-free Pilanesberg National Park and offers you everything you need to get in touch with the bush.
These Pilanesberg lodges are set in an area where the Big 5 roam, a mere 2-hour drive from the hectic lifestyle of Johannesburg. Bakubung, or “People of the Hippo”, offers you everything you need in regards to comfortable and luxury accommodation. With the bush just outside your window, you will be able to relax and take in everything about the bush and the animals living around you.
Set in the crater of a long-extinct volcano, the Pilanesberg National Park, which is home to Bakubung Bush Lodge, ranks amongst the largest of the parks in South Africa and covers an area of some 55 000 hectares. The Park offers guests sightings of a wide diversity of animal and plant life. This includes 360 species of birds, the Big Five, and many other South African animals.
Apart from game drives, bush walks, birding and in-house entertainment, Bakubung and Kwa Maritane have developed something even more engaging, the Junior Ranger’s Programme. Experience the BIG 5 with our trained field guides who will also show you Africa’s other beautiful fauna and flora.
The Bakubung restaurant caters for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Enjoy our African themed spit braai on Fridays. On Wednesday and Saturday nights you can book for the bush braai at our Boma in the park, or enjoy our Chef’s carvery in the main restaurant. The Bakubung restaurant has various options to choose from. For an unforgettable dining experience try a bush braai around a huge fire in the Boma. If bush dining is not your thing, then dine in comfort in the main restaurant and choose from the Chef’s carvery to your heart’s content.
Set balanced on the hillside overlooking Bakubung Bush lodge in The Pilanesberg National Park is the beautiful Bakubung Spa. The very unique and natural feel of the architecture blends magnificently with the wonder that is the Pilanesberg Bushveld. The tranquil interiors mirror the quiet environment, punctuated by the sounds of Africa; cicadas, crickets, the warm winds moving through the grasses and trees. The treatment rooms are designed such that the game fence is only meters from the treatment beds. It is here that our skilled therapists combine their knowledge and expertise with nature, leaving you completely relaxed and spellbound by the experience. The spa is equipped with Signature Spa therapies, award-winning products, a serene and calming environment, world-class Therapists, and an ozone vitality.
