Time Share guests can order take away meals but you have to order at the restaurant and collect yourself. We had burgers that were very tasty. I can recommend the burger both chichen and beef.

I am visiting the Bakubung Lodge several times a year since 1996. During my last visit the service became absolutely pathetic! Waitresses are unmotivated, ignorant, unfriendly, unable to serve the food that had been ordered and even very snotty/cocky. First time since over 20 years...that my tip was exactly ZERO! Rather bring your own food and enjoy the otherwise beautiful surrounding of the Pilanesberg Nationalpark without any annoyance.More

We had a lunch and a dinner at this restaurant. The lunch service was shocking - the waitress managed to get our very simple order wrong - 2 Beef Burgers and 2 Chicken Burgers became 4 Beef Burgers. The chips were cold and soggy. The...dinner service was much better and the food was great. We found the Buffet prices to be very expensive. The setting is beautiful with Elephant stroling past along with some Warthog and a Kudu Doe.More

The choice was overbearing to a degree but someone had to try it all. Even had sweeties for the kids ice cream.

The entrance into the wonderful Bakabung is not so great but the food is superb and so much more game comparing to the rest of the park. Well done!

Enjoyed a couple of meals on the terrace at Bakubung. Stunning outlook, beautiful trees and gardens. Menu is slightly limited apparently since Covid, I believe it could be expanded further now. Staff good but could be a little more attentive. We will return.

Great variety of food and easy to go at your leisure. Given we are not here for the food but the animals, the quick turnaround was key.

The next night we went back only to be disappointed again. I am shocked that a restaurant could warm up frozen box pizza and sell it. First time I ordered kingklip and had it crumbed without requesting crumbed kingklip. This place is a joke

We opted for the Friday night buffet. At R350 per person this is a rip off. The head chef should be fired as he should be embarressed to put out such tasteless food. Yuck!!!
