Extensive choices with great service. The vegetarian options were good and the pasta bar a nice touch. Dessert options were wide (including jelly beans and tots) and looked delicious. A nice touch was the complimentary pizza we received.

We felt like royalty presented with pleasures from smoked salmon fruit, English breakfast, cheeses, breads and pastries to delicious fresh pancakes. It was hard to choose! VEry importantly the presentation was fresh every day!

What's not to like about sitting in front of a fireplace, sipping a fine S. African wine and enjoying really fine food? We loved staying at the lodge and dining at Marula Grill. We'll definitely be back.

The wine list offers a wide selection of great South African reds and whites, something for everyone. After a couple of days the buffet menu starts to get a bit repetitive; everything... More

This is a buffet restaurant in the Bakubung Bush Lodge. It has both indoor and outdoor seating. During daylight hours the outdoor seating overlooks a watering hole, which the animals sometimes come to. Food was of pretty good quality and there was reasonable variety. For dinner there are stations for salad, soup & bread, cold appetizers, hot entrees & sides,... More

Don't be mistaken - The buffet is not free, we were offered a complimentary buffet dinner as Bakubung had mixed up our accommodation reservation and had to move us to the vacation club at sun city - this was part of their apology!! Buffet was very impressive, great mushroom soup and bread selection. Very good carvery section and a few... More
