The Pilanesberg National Park, which is situated a 2 hour drive north west of Johannesburg / Pretoria, is characterized by impressive volcanic mountain forms and rolling savannah grasslands 1300 million years old. These impressive features have created one of the most topographically diverse Reserves to be found in South Africa. The 55 000 hectares (132000 acres) of Pilanesberg National Park are home to some 10 000 animals and the park is now one of the privileged reserves hosting the Big Five and 364 species of bird. A major reason for Pilanesberg's diversity of animals is that it lies in the transition zone between the arid Kalahari in the west and the humid Lowveld of the Northwest Province. The seven different habitats at the Pilanesberg attract and cultivate prolific birdlife.
Guests are collected at their hotel for an early start and proceed North West on a two-hour drive. After crossing the Hartebeespoort Dam we drive through Platinum country before we enter the Pilanesberg Nature Reserve. You spend the day with your driver/guide searching for the BIG FIVE i.e.: Leopard, Lion, Buffalo, Rhinoceros and Elephant. Coffee, tea and a light breakfast and mineral water is included. You pay for your own lunch.
