the tents are ok but environement is very dusty and food is simply terrible! SA will stop to attract international tourist if the lodge industry dont change food practice, i've been here for 6 years and the food is consistently bad and always the same ...

My husband and I enjoyed our Bakgatla stay and found the staff all exceptionally friendly and helpful. We did however note a general lack of care in terms of maintenance. Our tent had been scrappily repaired in several places and there was unpleasant refuse lying very closeby to the tent. Overall we just had the feeling that the camp seemed generally uncared for.

We spent two week nights at Bakgatla Resort at the end of June 2012. Our stay was in the luxury tent. We found the accommodation to be good and the place was clean with all the amenitites we needed - maybe just some ice trays would have been nice! The food on week night was great - the buffet on Friday night - well not so great. Breakfast was good. We will defintely be back.

Bakubung, Kwa Maritane. Sun city is just around the corner. The entertainment center is a must go, even if you don't have kids.
