Pilanesberg National Park

The Pilanesberg National Park is located in North West Province in South Africa, west of Pretoria. The park borders with the entertainment complex Sun City. Pilanesberg Game Reserve is home to the Big 5 and offers a variety of affordable accommodation, from self-catering to luxury 5 Star Lodges.


The Bakubung Villas project consists of 22 exclusive private stands with units that will be designed as an expression of your personal style, through a range of 3 and 4 bedroom homes. With the exclusive use of the Bakubung Bush Lodge's facilities at your fingertips, you have access to a variety of amenities, including a luxurious new day spa, restaurants, bars, children's playgrounds and so much more.

What you are investing in is not only a VIP villa in the most tranquil part of the country, you're buying into a lifestyle that's linked to one of SA's most prestigious hotel brands – the Legacy Hotel Group. It's not surprising then that the experience is nothing short of pure 5-star indulgence!

These extraordinary villas are structured on a turnkey, hassle-free basis that's driven and managed by the Legacy Hotel Group. Therefore, everything from the initial construction of your lodge, to the day-to-day operations and management thereafter, is taken care of by one of Africa's leading hospitality brands. As an owner you would also have the option of incorporating your lodge into the resorts' commercial rental pool whereby we will completely service, market and manage your lodge, providing you with an immediate and healthy financial return.

The year-on-year annual tourism rate is on the increase in the park, and the launch of the new Pilanesberg Airport means our guests and owners will be able to fly from O.R. Tambo International Airport and Cape Town International Airport directly to the Pilanesberg and back.

When you own one of these sensational villas, you'll have access to all the incredible amenities. You'll literally have one-on-one interaction with the big 5 roaming virtually on your doorstep, and enjoy every moment that the real African bush lifestyle has to offer.

In addition to the existing facilities and services provided for on-site, Bakubung also provides multiple daily shuttles to Sun City, which opens up another world of facilities for owners to enjoy: Two golf courses, a casino, concerts, The Valley of the Waves, plenty of dining opportunities and more.

The maintenance and management of your villa will fall on the shoulders of The Legacy Hotel Group, so services such as daily housekeeping, pool care, pest control, landscaping, reception duties, administration, security and a number of other concierge services are already all in place and provided for on-site.
