Not as child friendly as you may think
I would look around next time before booking Bakubung for a safari experience. It is not as child friendly as they say unless you have a 5 yr old or younger. Lots can be done to improve.
Tanya, za2 night family trip
Good 6,0
Food was a huge disappointment!
Dinner was not great, no lamb options were available which was a big disappointment. Not well catered for through quality options and food that was prepared was made hap haphazardly. Breakfast closed too early for those that wanted to sleep in a bit later being on holiday
