We have just returned from our 4 night stay in the Bakubung timeshare, this was our second visit this year. As usual we had an excellent time, the staff as always were ready and willing to help. On arrival we checked in at the time share office with no problems, we purchased our entry permit at reception and had lunch overlooking the waterhole. We had to wait for our chalet to be prepared but this was no hassle, we were still able to take residence before 4 pm, the official check in time. The unit is comfortable and everything I have come to expect at Bakubung, we attended the Tuesday morning meet and greet, had coffee and a snack and listened to some verbal nonsence from a small corner who in my opinion talked rubbish, We entered the park at 4pm I offered my permit for inspection to the security man and entered the park for our first of 8 drives. I have found that the park has improved over the last 12-18 months and most of the roads are good and passable for the family car. The wildlife is sufficient for the park size in my opinion, we saw lions, elefant, rhino, hippo, brown hyeane, Eland, Jackal. as well as the abundant zebra, wilderbeast, springbok, impala, worthog and others. Although we do not usually take the game drives offered, choosing to take our own routes instead, this visit I took the wildlife walk in the park, a great experience.We had breakfast at the picnic site Fish Eagle, tranquility. I am already booked in for our 2 visits in 2014 and look forward to our return. Many thanks to all the staff at Bakubung
