About Bakwena

Bakwena Spa was developed by offering an innovative and creative approach to spa and spa therapy in South Africa. Wellness is a state of mind as well as a physical attribute.
We at Bakwena Day Spa have developed an innovative approach to treating both the body and mind through the creation of a relaxing, welcoming and enjoyable environment. Our customers are our focus and all leave the spa feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and restored.

Step out and indulge yourself, whether a full day, half day, evening or romantic couple’s package, you deserve it.

Our Vision

A Bakwena Day spa nationally

Our Mission

Loving to serve our customers better every day, the Bakwena way.

Our Promise

Pure Relaxation

Why “Bakwena”?

Kwena is the Tswana word for Crocodile, Bakwena meaning people of the Crocodile. They honour the Crocodile as their totem and the meaning of the Crocodile also denotes inner strength and power. Therefore the Crocodile also represents the ability to overcome challenges and to tap into one's own strength and resilience. At Bakwena we create a environment for our customers to reconnect with their own inner strength, peace and calm

The Bafokeng, of whom the Bakwena is a derivative Tribe, is now the richest Tribe in Africa due to royalties paid to them by Mining Companies who mine a variety of Minerals, mainly Platinum, on their ancestral land.

At Bakwena Venue, you can meet “Thomas” & "Rufus", and at Bakwena Zevenwacht, you can meet “Woody”, our very own “Crocodiles” – they meet every Guest on arrival and assures them a day of “Pure relaxation” and peace.
