Bakubung Bush Lodge
A mere two hours drive north of Johannesburg and Pretoria and you'll find yourself in the tranquil heart of the bush. Pilanesberg National Park is home to the gargantuan shapes of Africa's giants - elephants, rhino and buffalo. If you're fortunate, you may catch a glimpse of the stealthy leopard or lion, stately king of the bush. Wild country indeed, but without the risk of malaria.
Bakubung Bush Lodge offers 76 air-conditioned, thatched roof, studio rooms and 66 chalets, which 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. You can be in the heart of the bush, but still have luxury at your fingertips.
