I also provided this write-up under the lodge, since I did not know the name of the restaurant. Went here for lunch while touring Pilanesburg, and got the buffet. Fresh, tasty food in a relaxed atmosphere and friendly service. Great selection of salad, fruit, sides, entrees, and dessert. You can dine inside or on the patio, with great views of... More

When you stay in the Sun City area it is very difficult to find a decent restaurant outside Sun City. We decided to treat ourselves to a dinner at Bakubung Bush Lodge after we had visited the lodge in the morning, before going into the park, and were absolutely amazed by the setting. The drive in the dark from our... More

Extensive choices with great service. The vegetarian options were good and the pasta bar a nice touch. Dessert options were wide (including jelly beans and tots) and looked delicious. A nice touch was the complimentary pizza we received.

What's not to like about sitting in front of a fireplace, sipping a fine S. African wine and enjoying really fine food? We loved staying at the lodge and dining at Marula Grill. We'll definitely be back.

The Bakubung Lodge restaurant provides typical buffet style food – hot and cold selections for main, plus a wide variety of salad option, topped off with waist-busting desserts. The wine list offers a wide selection of great South African reds and whites, something for everyone. After a couple of days the buffet menu starts to get a bit repetitive; everything... More

This is a buffet restaurant in the Bakubung Bush Lodge. It has both indoor and outdoor seating. During daylight hours the outdoor seating overlooks a watering hole, which the animals sometimes come to. Food was of pretty good quality and there was reasonable variety. For dinner there are stations for salad, soup & bread, cold appetizers, hot entrees & sides,... More
