Stayed at this resort for a week in July 2013. We stayed in a five sleeper chalet which I found very old and very tired. This was not really a big problem for us as we were in the area to visit the Pilanesberg Game Reserve and spend most of each day away from the resort. The furnishings were barely...

This past weekend my Wife and I booked in for a camping weekend at the Bakgatla camp site in the Pilansberg for our anniversary. We had previously camped twice at the Manyane resort and decided to give this site a try. To put it mildly it was the most dissapointing revelation ever. The camp sites are pathetically small with hardly...

We stayed at the Chalet. And it was very comfortable. It has a double bed and 3 single beds, comfortable to sleep 5 adults. Its quite, not very fancy and very good option for those who want to enjoy life at the bush. What makes this place very attractive, is that they have kept it very simple, with all the...

My husband and I stayed for a two night weekend in a chalet. We were greeted warmly by staff on arrival. Our chalet was very clean and neat. The chalet is set for for full self catering. There is a small superette for odds and ends in the camp. But would recommend using the big Superspar next to Sun City...

The chalet was comfortable though not as luxurious as we expected from the rather high charges. However, the young man who runs the Pilansberg Centre restaurant and shop must be highly commended. I fell, breaking my arm badly on 12th March 2013 and found the urgent, caring actions of the young man and his staff was exceptional, calling the Paramedic...

We only booked the week before we went, and this was the lead into Easter. We were offered a deal for dinner, bed & breakfast for 5256zar or £377.34 on...

BAKGATLA Caravan holiday resort started of as a RCI International resort. Then it dropped and keep silver until 2010 and since then NO Rating. This info is from the Reception Office at Bakgatla. My Personal experience is that the service dropped considerable from 2010. I am a regular camper at Bakgatla but the resort is at a very low level....

We recently stayed at Bakgatla rest camp in a chalet - aka "Colonial style" accommodation. (March 22-24 2013). We paid R5600 for three nights, and for this international type of rate, we expected much more from the accommodation. A few things happened : the water supply ran dry for 3+ hrs- likely poor planning by whoever is managing this resort;...

“If you are after a 'bush' experience, Lodge 19 is a bit too tucked away in the trees, but for those wanting a quiet, secluded escape, it was perfect. Luckily for me, it had a 'handicapped' bathroom.”
