The Pilanesberg National Park is situated in a crater in the Bojanala Region of the North West Province. This crater is the product of a volcano that erupted many millions of years ago. This extinct volcano has evolved to become one of the fascinating landscapes for you to visit. By the Genesis project, the majority of South Africa’s wildlife is now found in the Pilanesberg game reserve. The park covers an area of 55 000 hectares. More than 7000 animals live here in a free and unhindered environment. Pilanesberg is home to all of the Big 5 (elephant, rhino, leopard, buffalo and lion). We guarantee that you will be able to tick off most of them on this Pilanesberg day tour.
Other animals that you may encounter are the zebra, giraffe, cheetah, hyena, hippo, crocodile, jackal, wild cat, various antelope. A list of over 300 bird species is also an exciting sighting to look forward to. Pilanesberg offers over 200 km of roads for guided or self-drive game viewing. On this Pilanesberg safari, you will enjoy an extensive game drive conducted by an experienced and knowledgeable tour guide who will answer all your questions about the fascinating wildlife and environment. Bring your cameras to have a permanent record of all the wild animals and the spectacular landscape the Pilanesberg National Park has to offer.
After collecting you from your hotel or residence in Johannesburg between 06:00 – 06:30, we travel to the Pilanesberg Nature reserve.
Upon arrival, your guide will then take you on an exciting morning drive with an open 4×4 safari vehicle. On your morning drive, you will join your guide who will be in search of the animals that inhabit the National Park. These guides are knowledgeable and will give you in-depth information on the animal you are viewing, and they try their out-most to find the members of the Big 5.
During the heat of the day, you will enjoy lunch on your account at one of the many rest camps in the National Park before departing on an afternoon closed vehicle safari drive. Alternatively, you are more than welcome to inform your guide if you would prefer to spend the afternoon at the Sun City Hotel and Casino resort. This resort is located on the outer border of the National Park.
Our vehicles depart the National Park and Sun City between 15:00 – 15:30 to arrive back in Johannesburg before sunset.
