ABOUT BAKUBUNG BUSH LODGE
 
Bakubung Bush Lodge offers guests luxury accommodation and superb wildlife encounters in the heart of the North West Province. Situated in the malaria-free Pilansberg Game Reserve, the lodge provides the perfect base for exploring the rich diversity of the indigenous plant and animal life of the area. It’s home to the famous “Big Five” as well as an array of other mammals and birds. Located close to magical Sun City and roughly a two hour drive from Johannesburg, Bakubung is the obvious choice for those seeking an exciting and authentic African bush experience, a mere few hours from Johannesburg. Each of the rooms have beautifully decorated interiors and doors that open onto either a patio or balcony. Panoramic views of the Hippo Pool and the whole park await guests who get to revel in the beauty of the exquisite surrounds from above.
 
Delicious cuisine is also something on which Bakubung prides itself. The Bakubung Restaurant serves three scrumptious meals a day and for something different, offers guests the opportunity to enjoy an authentic bush braai twice a week. Game drives are available twice a day and from the safety of your open-air vehicle, you can witness the incredible wildlife that roams the plains. Bakubung is a great way to get in touch with the bush and families looking to experience a family trip with a difference should look no further. It’s the ideal combination of luxury, comfort and the magic found only in the African wilds.
 
ABOUT THE PILANESBERG GAME RESERVE
Next door to the famous leisure and entertainment resort of Sun City, is the Pilanesberg National Park. It may not be very large (550km²) compared to Kruger or some of the other great African parks, but it has a real wilderness feel to it and most of the big animals you could wish to see. It lies amongst the only significant hills in the area which rise skywards out of the flat highveld plain. This massif is a 1,200 million-year-old volcanic relic of four concentric mountain rings.
 
The Pilanesberg is the highest peak towering 600 metres above Mankwe Lake, which sits in the heart of the ancient volcano. The volcano's circular bowl was recognised as being the perfect situation for a national park with its tall sides creating natural boundaries. The area was farmed until 1979 until Operation Genesis was launched to rehabilitate the land and stock it with game. This was one of the most imaginative game-stocking enterprises ever undertaken and the Pilanesberg became a great success story. There are currently around 10,000 head of game and it is a very popular game park for locals and overseas visitors alike - many of whom make the short trip from the nearby resort of Sun City. Animals and birds.
 
This park is home to good populations of a whole range of Africa's game, including the 'Big Five'; elephants, black and white rhinoceros, buffaloes, lions and leopards and you will also see giraffes, zebras, hippos and a wide variety of antelopes including the very attractive sable, eland, kudu and gemsbok. There are also cheetahs and hyenas and jackal. Birdlife is good with over 300 species and bird lovers will be interested in the huge stroll-through aviary at the Manyane gate. Also in this area is a 'vulture restaurant' - created to help save the shy and endangered Cape vulture from regional extinction.
