The Pilanesberg National Park, is situated north west of Johannesburg/Pretoria and about 2/3 hours away. Pilanesberg 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 50 000 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.
You can arrange a breakfast pack from your hotel where you stay. We fetch you at 6h00 from your hotel in Johannesburg and then depart the park at about 15h30 back at your hotel by 18h00. This is for the full day in Pilanesberg. The tour is done in our own vehicle. This will be a private tour and in our own vehicle.
