BAKUBUNG BUSH LODGE RATES: Bakubung Bush Lodge Rates

A mere two hours drive north of Johannesburg and Pretoria and you'll find yourself in the tranquil heart of the bush. Tucked in the expanses of the malaria-free Pilanesberg Game Reserve, Bakubung Bush Lodge offers the best of two worlds - combining the peaceful bush environment with luxury and comfort. Pilanesberg Game Reserve is home to the gargantuan shapes of Africa's giants - elephants, rhino and buffalo. If you're fortunate, you may catch a glimpse of the stealthy leopard or lion, stately king of the bush. Wild country indeed, but without the risk of malaria.

If you do head this way, be sure to check in at Bakubung Bush Lodge - a venue of such excellence that it has been awarded "Best Bush Conference Venue" at the 2000 Venue Finder Awards. It was also voted the ASATA\ Diners Club “Best South African Game Lodge" in 2003.

Location & Nearby Attractions
A magnificent wildlife sanctuary lies not too far from the bustle of Johannesburg and Pretoria - located close enough to drive comfortably in under two hours, yet sufficiently distanced from the city lights.

Pilanesberg Game Reserve, which covers some 55,000 hectares, is the fourth largest in southern Africa. This malaria-free park is perched on the eroded vestiges of an alkaline volcanic crater - one of only three such craters in the world. On its undulating hills and everlasting open plains, you can get a glimpse of the 'Big Five', an abundance of animals and over 360 bird species. As well as the 'Big Five', you might also find the nocturnal brown hyena, wild dogs, cheetah, hippo, crocodile and even sable.

Many guests are content to spend time at the lodge, drinking in the meditative silence and holding the wide, open plains in awe; but they never leave without tracking down the Big Five in the Pilanesberg Game Reserve, on game walks or drives.

Bakubung and Pilanesberg Game Reserve are situated adjacent to the world-renowned Sun City Resort. For a diversion, there's all the bustle and excitement of a day at Sun City, including:
• Golf
• Tennis
• Squash
• Ten pin bowling
• Horse riding
• Crocodile farm
• Aviary
• Casino
• Live entertainment venues
• Theatre and movie
