We went to Bakubong Lodge from JB for the weekend. Initially we went into Sun City (next door - 5km) for a look but way to plastic for our liking. Booked online at the Sun City Gates and went to the Lodge. Lodge is inside a game reserve / national park. Price included breakfast, dinner and a safari tour.
Beds comfortable, room was great, views into the bush.
Staff super friendly. Food was great.
Tour - we saw 4 of the big 5, and had an amazing time
Tau Lodge is located in the Madikwe Game Reserve in northwestern South Africa. My wife and I went to have the African safari experience and we were not disappointed. Daily rates include all meals and snacks, twice daily 3 hour bush trips (early morning and late afternoon), and individual rooms w/bath overlooking the water hole. You can sit on your deck between bush trips and watch as various types of animals meander into the water hole for a drink (we saw a herd of 12-15 elephants, warthog, various antelope and zebra plus birds too numerous to mention). Our ranger Megan proved very knowledgeable and entertaining who proved adept at finding numerous animals to observe. We saw 4 of the big 5 (elephant, rhino, Cape buffalo and lions), missing only a sighting of the always elusive leopard. Thanks to my wife (known affectionately in the family as "snake bait"), Megan even saw her first black mamba since she has been at Madikwe. Overall an enjoyable experience which we plan to repeat.

Not to bad but the complimentary wifi is a hoax.When I discussed this with one of the managers he was aware of the problem and said it was something that needed to be adressed.If you are there on business and need an internet connection I would go somewhere else or your just going to have a nightmare.The rooms are a bit dated but not to bad fly screens on the windows would be a great improvement.

Outstanding experience. Safari was amazing, the rangers are very knowledgeable and passionate about conservation. The hotel is exquisite in terms of rooms, dinning and facilities. Tre staff were professional, friendly and a joy to interact with.
Nothing prepared me for the immediacy and intensity of the experience at Jamala. As an experienced traveller and visitor of other safari lodges I was struck by the intimate exclusivity of this lodge. No detail was overlooked. The wild life and African bush was centre stage, with this immaculate lodge the vehicle of an unforgettable experience. Rodney and Nico made you feel like you have arrived home after a long journey and small details like a hot drawn mineral bath after a game drive made this an incomparable experience. There is no doubt in my mind that I will visit again and as soon as possible.
