Upon arrival, we were welcomed with soothing sounds and a fresh breeze. The doors in the massage rooms are all wide open so you get to take the scenery all in in its glory. It feels like you’re a part of nature with the sounds of the chirping birds and the crisp air coming in.

  1. The place of the hippo

It’s a deep tissue massage that uses an aroma deep tissue oil to get deep in the muscles. It helps with releasing soreness from most muscles. Apparently it’s a favourite amongst their male clientele.

  1. The place of the rhino

This is a nourishing massage. They mainly use shea butter for its calming and nourishing properties on the skin, hence it’s a favourite among women.

  1. The place of the rock

This is a body exfoliating treatment where they remove dead skin cells in preparation for the second phase, being the massage. They use coconut oil and a triangular wooden tool for this particular massage which works perfectly at targetting pressure points.

Bakubung Bush Lodge is a perfect escape from the busy hustle of Johannesburg. You get in touch with nature by going on amazing game drives, game walks, and enjoy a delicious boma braai. We sure got a full bush experience.
