There are good gravel roads inside the park, which visits with a regular sedan vehicle possible. Transfers from OR Tambo International Airport can be arranged on request.
The qualified local guides are expert trackers and offer you the best opportunity to spot various game species, including the endangered African wild dog. Wild dogs were reintroduced into the Pilanesberg National Park in 1998 and have been very successful in their breeding and survival ever since. Its scientific name, Lycaon pictus, means 'painted wolf' referring to the animal's irregular, mottled coat, which features patches of black, red, brown, white, and yellow fur.
The rangers will explain all there is to learn about this unique biosphere and the various wildlife you can find. If you're lucky, you can see the predators like lion, cheetah and the elusive leopard. The park also hosts elephant, wildebeest, sable antelope, impala, nyala, and numerous bird species.
