Bakgatla Resort

Accommodation in Pilanesberg Game Reserve and Surrounds

Star Rating:3

Pilanesberg is situated on the eroded remains of an extinct alkaline volcanic crater - one of only three in the world. The Park consists of numerous hills, wooded ravines and grassed open plains, making the area very picturesque. A wide diversity of eco-types makes a beautiful home for more than 35 species of large mammals, the sought-after "Big Five" and more than 300 bird species.

At the foot of the Garamoga hill lies the Bakgatla Resort which consists of unique colonial-styled chalets and safari tents, complemented by rolling lawns and a well positioned olympic-size swimming pool. Each Chalet consists of a lounge, fully equipped kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and an ever-popular up-stairs loft bedroom.
