Bakubung Bush Lodge Pilanesberg National Park

The Lodge

Tucked in the expanses of the malaria-free Pilanesberg National Park, Bakubung, or the People of the Hippo, provides guests with the peace and tranquility of a true bush experience coupled with the luxury and service you’ve come to expect from a Legacy bush lodge.


76 air-conditioned, thatched roof, studio rooms and 66 chalets curve into a horse-shoe around the outside entertainment areas, huddling visitors in cosy intimacy. All rooms have DStv, direct dialling phones, en-suite bathrooms, electric shaving plugs, coffee/tea making machines and a hair dryer.


In-Lodge Activities

Your wildlife experiences are best shared at a blazing campfire, while you marvel at the spectacle of innumerable stars at our exclusive Boma Lapa in the park.

  • Board games 
  • Table tennis and darts
  • Outdoor chess 
  • Children’s adventure playground 
  • Natural rock-hewn pool 
  • Two floodlit tennis courts
