Beautiful weekend break. Rooms were beautiful, clean and comfortable. Food was delicious. Daily breakfast was more than you could wish for with waffles and pancakes too. The resort was COVID compliant from check in to check out. The game drives were a wonderful escape and we saw so many animals. The morning game drive was our favorite but I must say that having a good game ranger makes all the difference. Steve was our ranger and he was excellent- I would recommend him. The bush dinner was an amazing experience too. We also played some tennis which was very fun and spent the day by the pool. Thank you Bakabung for a wonderful weekend. We loved every minute and it was just what we needed. We will definitely be back 😊🍃

Surprisingly amazing”

Having been asked to contact the hotel directly after booking, to confirm arrival time and book in game drive, I sent several emails to the hotel over a 5 month period with NO response. This made me feel uneasy about going there and not getting a game drive or dealing with unprofessional staff who can't be bothered responding. BUT once I got to the resort all was forgotten....... staff were all friendly and helpful. Offered game drive options and booked us in. Room was spacious and comfortable. Resort was lovely. Dinner buffet and breakfast buffet were BOTH sensational. Cannot believe how amazing the resort was. Pleased with stay... and highly recommended!!!!!

It would help if the hotel can communicate if request is not possible. we asked for a singular bed , but found the room with established two bedroom.
