    About Bakubung Bush Lodge

    The luxury Bakubung Bush Lodge is located in the Pilansberg National park, notorious for its typical African beauty and wildlife that astonishes everyone who visits. At just 175 km away from Johannesburg, and just 10 km from Sun City – the Bakubung Bush Lodge is in the perfect location for a holiday filled with both the wonders of safari and cultural experiences. It is situated in the malaria-free Pilanesberg National Park, a fantastic alkaline complex created from volcanic eruptions that occurred over 1,300 million years ago. Pilanesberg is proud to boast one of the largest volcanic complexes of its kind in the whole of the world, and has rare rock types that are available in only very few remote places of the world. Whether you just enjoy the view or you’re fascinated by geology, staying at the luxury Bakubung Bush Lodge will prove to be one of the most exciting places you’ve ever stayed in.

    Bakubung restaurant
    If you’re looking for typical African cuisine with twists, and combinations of African cooking styles then you need not look any further than the Bakubung restaurant that is located on site. You won’t find a printed menu in the restaurant, as John’s love for diverse cooking experimentation means there’s always something new on offer.
