Situated in the pristine Pilanesberg region, a mere two hours' drive from bustling CBD of Johannesburg and yet enveloped in a tranquil ambience all its own, Bakubung Bush Lodge is a luxurious retreat in a place of breath-taking beauty. 

'Bakubung' means 'people of the hippo' and refers to the lodge's close proximity to a much-frequented hippo pool, where guests can view these gentle giants in their natural habitat from a safe distance. Located within the vast expanses of the world-renowned Pilanesberg National Park (one of the largest conserves in South Africa), Bakubung is the perfect destination for nature lovers who want to experience African wildlife in an environmentally friendly way.

Pilanesberg is home to the fabled Big Five, 360+ bird species and many other fascinating mammals that can be viewed on game drives and accompanied bush walks. Guests with children also have the option of enrolling their youngsters in the Junior Ranger's Programme, so they can learn more about our precious natural heritage.

Bakubung Bush Lodge is a Legacy resort, so guests can rest assured that they will stay in the lap of luxury. All rooms feature the amenities necessary for a comfortable, catered stay, and overlook the surrounding bushveld from a balcony or patio. Meals can be enjoyed at the on-site restaurant at regular intervals throughout the day, and the bar is a wonderful place to relax, have a drink and connect with fellow visitors while they gaze out over the hippo pond from the spacious terrace area. 

On Wednesday and Saturday nights guests can book for a bush braai at the boma in the park, or enjoy a chef's carvery in the main restaurant. These sought-after events feature delicious, traditional South African food and a lively Marimba band that creates a vibrant ambience under the stars.

Feeling a little tense? The lodge has a state-of-the-art spa with four treatment rooms and a wholly unique outdoor massage area where visitors can relax while they enjoy an al fresco treatment at the hands of a highly qualified therapist. This includes a range of exclusive treatments that can only be enjoyed at Bakubung.

Bakubung Bush Lodge also boasts a swimming pool, volleyball court and a host of other entertainment destinations. In short – it’s the ideal getaway destination for discerning travellers who want to experience the many splendours of the African bushveld at its finest. See their website for more information.
