Dining At Bakubung Bush Lodge
The Bakubung restaurant caters for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We have different themes on different days ranging from African, Indian and Asian. On Wednesday and Saturday nights you can book for the bush braai at our boma in the park, or enjoy our Chef’s carvery in the main restaurant. The Bakubung restaurant has various options to choose from. For an unforgettable dining experience try a bush braai around a huge fire in the boma. If bush dining is not your thing, then dine in comfort in the main restaurant and choose from the Chef’s carvery to your heart’s content. On different evenings we present different themes, for example on Tuesday evenings the buffet has an Indian theme, on Thursday evenings we make a change with a “Tast e of Asia” and on Friday evenings we go African.
