Bakubung Bush Lodge : “Place of the Hippo”

Bakubung Bush Lodge is a premier resort destination situated among the breathtaking panoramic views of Pilanesberg National Park, South Africa. Pilanesberg National Park is a popular, malaria-free game reserve that boasts over 135 acres of unspoiled wilderness where indigenous wildlife like the African Big 5 roam freely and abundantly.
