Bakubung Bush Lodge, Pilanesberg National Park, South Africa
Food was a huge disappointment!
Dinner was not great, no lamb options were available which was a big disappointment. Not well catered for through quality options and food that was prepared was made hap haphazardly. Breakfast closed too early for those that wanted to sleep in a bit later being on holiday

Nice place, needs updates
Bakubung was a great location to stay in order to explore Pilanesburg National Park. The staff was friendly. The park itself was stunning and it was easy to access for self-drives from the resort; the included game drives were very average. Our room was truly in need of an update (furniture and carpets looked a bit rough) and the bathroom in need of maintenance and deep clean; for these reasons I would choose another lodge in the area next time.
