The fourth largest park in South Africa, Pilanesberg is a melting pot of topographies which include syenite koppies, forested ravines, bush veld and rolling grasslands and lightly wooded areas–all contained in the crater of an extinct volcano that covers 55,000 hectares. Much of the beauties find reflection in the Mankwe Dam, the central water feature here. This is also a great place to spot wildlife, including the Big Five: The Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Rhinoceros and the Cape Buffalo.

Thabayadiotso, “The Proud Mountain”, offers fitting relief to the panoramas of the park. Apart from the large mammals, the park is home to over 300 species of birds and they can be sighted while on the one-of-a-kind self-guided trail in the Walking Area at Manyane Complex. If the wild ones are not showing up, you can rest assured you’ll see at least 80 species of birds at the walk-in aviary along the way.

Pilanesberg Game Reserve is in the Bojanala Region of the North West Province, adjacent to SunCity.

Pilanesberg National Park accommodates virtually every mammal of Southern Africa.

Game Drive

The 57 000 hectares of the Pilanesberg Game Reserve are brimming with almost all of Southern Africa’s game species. On the transition zone of the Kalahari and the Lowveld Pilanesberg offers a unique mix of fauna and flora. A game drive in Pilanesberg in an open safari vehicle allows close encounters with lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo. The Big 5 are joined by abundance of game including rare species such as wild dog or cheetah. More than 300 bird species make things interesting for avid birders.

Game drives are usually conducted in the early mornings of late afternoons. The cooler hours of the day see activity in the wildlife. Especially predators tend to hunt at dusk or dawn. The game drives are conducted by experienced rangers and game trackers. The rangers are always eager to share their knowledge of the environment and also happily assist you with your wildlife photography. Open safari vehicles allow for great views while still guaranteeing your safety at all times.
