                      We have an awesome long weekend. We enjoyed each minute of itThe only flaw was that our room was too far(233) as an elderly it was not comfortable for me for the ups and downs due to distance .*******************************************************

                      When I checked out, our game drive from the day before had been excluded from our bill. I pointed this out and the bill was corrected. We had 3 buffet meals on our first evening at the restaurant. I asked to sign when we were ready to leave and just the drinks invoice was presented. I informed the waiter that we had had the buffet and a new and correct invoice was produced. So, it seems to me that your inadequate systems, controls, training, staff and/or management the hotel is probably missing out on a fair amount of revenue. Not everyone is honest.

                      We just love Bakubung and are always delighted by the ambiance of the bust. The lovely views, setting and animals are just the best. We were just concerned about an infestation of cockroaches in the kitchen and especially around the stove area.

                      We loved the Pilanesberg Game Reserve where we spent most of our time. We didn't spend too much time in Bakubung itself.What could be improved is we had a leaking toilet which they were a bit tardy in fixing after we reported it. We couldn't use the en-suite bathroom at all.

                      Everything was very good except the roads which are full of pot holes and if these do not get repaired soon, they will be non navigable. Also, the booking was done by my daughter , Nicky, but I wrote to you and asked you to address all correspondence to me including the reservation, but you still do not do this and in fact , this e mail is still addressed to Nicky, when she did not go.
