Start TestimonialWe had an amazing time at Bakubung in every way. The accommodation and the service were fantastic; the transfers worked well and also the elephant back safari too! We'll be back and would be very happy to ask Travel Butlers and yourself for your assistance again. Thank you so much for everything you did to help.End Testimonial

J NELSON

Start TestimonialThank you for asking how my stay at Bakubung Bush Lodge went. I am very pleased to be able to tell you that the only way to describe it was that it was perfect. The friendliness and attentiveness of the staff made it a lovely experience. For me the accommodation was faultless though it was a short stay & I didn't get to experience all the hotel facilities. The scenic beauty and peacefulness of the lodge made my stay there an absolute delight so I will definitely enter the photo competition so you can see how beautiful it was. I thank you for all your assistance in the travel arrangements, using the voucher you emailed to me made my check in extremely quick and easy, so I will most definitely be recommending you and the Lodge to my friends.End Testimonial

Start TestimonialJust to say our safari worked out very well and Tshukudu Bush Lodge was well worth a stay. We had a great ranger called Howard who took us on our first drives and we saw some wonderful animals.  Bakubung Bush Lodge was also good and when we went on our own drives we were very fortunate to see some close up sights of animals including three lionesses that killed a wildebeest.End Testimonial

S FLYNN

Start TestimonialThank you so very much for suggesting and arranging the Tshukudu Bush Lodge and Bakubung Bush Lodge . The first was absolutely fabulous and our guide Howard a real gem. Neil from the Lodge also helped us out with our walking safari yesterday morning before we flew home. After Howard we went on self drive round the park and we saw so much game... 3 lionesses bringing down a wildebeest, a leopard (two different days, cheetah, baby hippo with adults, white and black rhino and of course the zebra giraffes, warthogs, waterbucks, springboks etc- we were just spoilt. Thank so much. Our three days were a lifetime's worth of treasure.End Testimonial
