Legacy Junior Rangers Programme:

Bakubung and Kwa Maritane Bush Lodges have developed a hugely engaging program specifically geared towards children, this being the Junior Ranger’s programme. Legacy Junior Rangers programme allows parents to enrol their kids in a unique, educational and, most importantly, a fun experience. Under the supervision of trained staff, parents can rest assured that their kids will be well-looked after whilst participating in a host of educational activities allowing the whole family a great getaway.


Activities focus on natural resource protection, environmental education and responsible recreation offering a special opportunity to explore the Pilanesberg National Park. Activities have been created for children from the ages of 6 years old to that of 12 years old and aim to encourage an appreciation for nature, conservation and natural resources. From learning about the history of the Pilanesberg National Park, participating in wildlife walks allowing children the opportunity to find out more about wild animals, the sounds various birds make become prominent as guides teach one what to listen for as well as that of the purpose of the various plant life around the lodges.
