Bakgatla Resort offers colonial style chalets with lounges, kitchens, bedrooms and above all a bedroom in the loft and all this at a very competitive price. The resort is located near the Pilanesberg National Park which also nearby the entertainment world of Sun City. The Pilanesberg National Park, being the most proximate to the city of Johannesburg, is probably the most accessible game reserve which is smaller in size comparatively to parks like the Kruger National Park, but home to several species of flora and fauna including the “big five”, all the more reason why the outdoor enthusiasts could find themselves staring at the “big five’s” eye to eye.
Bakgatla derives its name from the -ba- Kgafela tribe or the Bakgatla tribe which owned the northern part of the Pilanesberg Park. The rock formations and other landscape in and around the game reserve area have been influenced by magma flowing from the crater of a volcano going back to 1300 years when it erupted indeed a long history associated with the formation of the landscape in the region. The Mankwe Dam region, the largest water body in the park is where one can spot many animals and flock of birds nesting at the edge of the water body which sure would draw the interests of bird lovers. Nature and wildlife photographers can have their passions answered here with wide range of interests at their disposal.
The chalets are very spacious designed with one double bed on the ground floor and three single beds upstairs in a loft room. Bakgatla safari tents do have their own ensuit bathroom and is also very spacious with your own private porch. A maximum of 2 adults are allowed per tent, but it can sleep 2 adults and 2 children under 12 years of age.
