I found Valley View Guest House on the internet and it looked nice. I needed accommodation near Sun City without silly prices. When I arrived I was greeted warmly by the owner, Michele Colavita, who was born in Italy. I was checked in and shown a good sized room. I then had a good look around. The compound is very secure and the car parking free. I went immediately for a dip in the pool just outside the dining room. A few cold beers and sitting reading my book in the sunshine and I was as relaxed as I could be. I had dinner here. A large T-bone steak and some Italian red wine of course.
My room had comfortable beds and a reasonable bathroom. The one thing is that a lot of the hotel, and my room, were painted pink. Different, but it all worked. My room and the whole hotel were absolutely silent at night. This is a good place to stay. It won’t win any awards but it does the job. And Mr Colavita is a real character and will make sure you keep smiling.

Unique Quality:

• Quiet, secure and comfortable
• Swimming pool and sun loungers
• Good restaurant and bar

We stayed at Bakubung several times. It was always a joy to visit here. The staff is very friendly and the man at the gate even recognized us when we came back a week later.
The rooms are spacious and clean. There is internet connection in your room.

The breakfast buffet is so large you could stay there the whole day (if that was permitted).
Dinner is also buffet style, but there is so much choice that is absolutely no problem.
There is a waterhole that can be seen from the terrace in front of the restaurant. Animals do visit here frequently. The lodge surroundings are kept green by watering and that means there are many birds around the lodge. Great for bird watchers during the day.

Our Verdict:
A definite "Yes we will come back".

Directions: Bakubung is located in the south of the park, near Bakubung gate.
