Whilst the Pilanesberg park is unique especially because it is one of the few places on the continent that you can still see plentiful and magnificent rhino in the wild, the Bakubung Lodge is just a horrendous and expensive tourist processing facility.

This was a last minute booking and a great experience, good food, fantastic animal sightings and friendly staff. When we drove in the guards at the gate were so friendly, we knew we were in for a good time.

We specially flew up from Cape Town to come and do the hot air ballooning which was amazing. We have stayed at Bakubung earlier this year and found the new units modern and very comfortable. Buffets as always offered great options.
We stay at Bakubung every year and thoroughly enjoy ourselves. The accommodation is great and there is nothing better than to sit on our patio an enjoy watching the passing game.
I am unfortunately quite disappointed. Our unit had a serious problem with blocked drains....More

Pilanesberg is firstly a malaria free area - so not worries on that front. November through to feb is the wetter season so insects will be more prevalent than say May to September in the cooler dry season. as long as you keep the doors and windows closed you are unlikely to experience any problems, and use a decent insect repellent at dusk and dawn. That said this is Africa and anything can go in the wild. closed shoes would be advisable walking around at night as scorpions may also be around.
