Bakubung Bush Lodge
NORTH WEST CONFERENCE VENUE, BAKUBUNG BUSH LODGE, PILANESBERG
|Awarded Best Bush Conference Venue in 2000, Bakubung, "People of the Hippo", Lodge lies nestled in the nucleus of the malaria-free Pilansberg National Park. A mere two hour drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria this placid hideaway provides the ideal leisure or conference breakaway with easy access to Africa’s Big Five. Whilst offering the creature comforts that city slickers are accustomed to, Bakubung Lodge maintains a rustic ambience in continuity with its surrounding wide open African skies and fantastic bird life.
The crater of a long extinct volcano is the setting of Pilanesberg National Park - a fascinating alkaline complex produced by volcanic eruptions some 1300 million years ago. Pilanesberg is one of the largest volcanic complexes of its kind in the world. An abundance of wild life proliferates in 580 km of diverse and arresting bushveld terrain. The park is home to healthy populations of lion, leopard, black and white rhino, elephant and buffalo - Africa's "Big Five". The beauty of Pilanesberg is reflected in a large central lake, the Mankwe Dam. Over time, wind and water have carved a spectacular landscape with rocky outcrops, open grasslands, wooded valleys and thickets.
