Stayed with Marnice at the lovely BnB on out skirts of Randburg,this is bird watching paradise. The hospitality was amazing a real home from home experience, lots of options for breakfast and evening meals if required we chose the bbq it was delightful. Bed linen crisp and spotless. A car is essential, there's plenty of space for parking all in very safe secure setting. Highly recommended.

I spent three wonderful nights here at the end of my first trip back to South Africa in over two years. I’ve stayed before and BouBou never disappoints. The setting is beautiful, with a gorgeous garden and swimming pool to enjoy inside a wider secure area with antelope roaming around. Rooms are lovely, very well appointed and comfortable. Breakfast is tasty and home cooked with a great choice of cereal, fresh fruit and cooked options and is taken on a covered veranda. The raised sunset lapa is fabulous. Marnice and team make you feel so welcome. If you want a stay close to Rustenburg but out of the main town, it is ideal if you are on your way to or from Madikwe, Pilanesburg, Marakele or Botswana. I can’t recommend BouBou highly enough!

Our dear guests and now our friends from the UK are always welcome and as usual will the conversations on the patio guarantee a good laugh or two of interesting experiences under the African sun. Lovers of Africa and in particular the Madikwe Nature Reserve, we can't wait to see you next year! Thank you so much for your kind word of appreciation.

We stayed our first night in South Africa after landing in JNB in Boubou. The B&B is wonderful place with a lot of African birds, a nice garden and some Nyalas looking from outside tHrough the fence. A very Harmonic place ideally to arrive and settle your emotions. And Marnice is a fantastic host. She really tries everything to make your tay enjoyable. Seh even took car that we got smoothly to our next station Madikwe. Due to some local protest roads were blocked and she was really helpful to talk to the lodges management to work out options to get there. Thank you Marnice, we will come back!

This was our 2nd stay at Boubou & we hope to return in the future. Marnice & Jan Piet are great hosts & always willing to provide helpful advice. Our room was well kitted out & very comfortable & breakfast & evening meals were delicious. Unfortunately we did not get to use the swimming pool this time as it rained very heavily on a couple of days whilst we were there but we did enjoy watching the birds & the numerous buck (impala & nyala) in the garden & surrounding grounds.

It is always a happy meeting when our guests are returning and this time after a long Covid period not having guests. We were so thrilled to see each other again. We have enjoyed your very interesting views and knowledge about almost everything under the sun. Hope to see you next year visiting the Sun City Golf Tournament.

So good to be back after way too long. This is our go to place to stay en route to / from Madikwe and it feels like a home from home. Set within beautiful gardens in a tranquil, secure setting 20 kms outside Rustenburg off the N4. Rooms are spacious, well appointed and have direct access to the gardens and pool. Breakfast is delicious, varied and beautifully presented with a choice of fruits, yoghurt and cereal followed by hot options. Dinner can be arranged if booked in advance. Marnice and her team, who now feel like family, look after us wonderfully and we are always very sad to leave. A great place to relax and unwind.

We had a very great time at bou bou with my family. Marnice is a very wonderful and friendly person who welcomed us well and also gave us good treatment, not forgetting her husband and their staff as well. The place is very beautiful with the bird life that is so great. The garden is so beautiful, and the bedrooms are also beautiful with showers that are big enough. The breakfast was also great every morning. I so loved the place and was grateful when she taught my wife how cook quick pap using the microwave which is something we never knew.

We felt at home in this fantastic B&B . We stayed for three nights and enjoyed the evening meals also. The rooms were very clean and well provided with everything you need for a pleasant stay. We specially enjoyed the singing birds and the nice places to relax inside and outside.
The warm welcome, the beautifull garden and the fresh swimmingpool gave us a relaxed time.

By far the cleanest B&B we have ever stayed at.
Boubou was built and organized to suit our every need.
Marnice was more than accommodating and even looked after our dog while we were out and about.

Would definitely go back!

Boubou B & B delivers as promised - with a beautiful garden, nice size swimming pool, and comfortable rooms. We loved the tranquil atmosphere, the swimming pool area and the view from the deck. The staff is great, and provided tasty vegetarian/vegan alternatives for breakfast. Although we couldn't cook meals, we could use plates, glasses etc. from the kitchen and warm up food in the microwave. There are no nearby restaurants, but Rustenburg is only 20-25 min drive away with plenty of shops and take away restaurants.

Good morning Denise and Andy, Thank you for inquiry. We are 45 minutes' drive from the nearest gate, which is the Bakubung gate. There a couple of nice things to do in our area, like skydiving, tree top canopy tours, view predator worlds, hot air balloons, museums and of course lovely restaurants with nice home made brewed beers. If you consider booking with us, please contact us directly via our own website. Please don't book via any other booking portals, as it is commission based. We also have an online booking system available on our system. Looking forward to hearing from you again. Kind regards, Marnice
