Safari in Pilanesburg National Park

Southern Africa has numerous fascinating game reserves, but Pilanesberg National Park is perhaps the most accessible. This vast area lies in the ecologically diverse transition zone between the Kalahari and the Lowveld, which offers thrilling big game viewing in a malaria-free environment.

Pilanesberg National Park is set within the crater of an ancient volcano, formed 1.2 billion years ago by overflowing magma. As a result, we see today the magnificent landscape and rock formations left behind by this occurrence.

Pilanesberg National Park is a two-hour drive from South Africa's largest city (Johannesburg), and gives visitors a chance to discover a whole new world. Discover the wonders of the wilderness during the public holidays or on a romantic getaway.


The Pilanesberg National Park is only three hours from South Africa's largest city (Johannesburg). Getaway to the unspoiled wilderness to celebrate public holidays or enjoy romantic getaways.

Bursting With Wildlife

Because the park is relatively small and has an unusual ecological diversity, you are far more likely to see the Big 5 in the wild. Choose your own adventure at Pilanesberg- a leisurely Safari or an exciting weekend getaway.


There is an accommodation option to suit every taste in Pilanesberg. It doesn't matter whether you like "roughing it" in a safari tent in the bush, or a large bubble bath as you look out the window of your luxury lodge, Pilanesberg offers it all.

Photographic Hides

In Pilanesberg's concealed photographic hides you can immerse yourself in the natural world. Located within the park, these well-built hides offer a comfortable place to wait for the perfect shot. Observe wildlife and birds in their natural habitat, safely out of sight.

Ancient History 

1.2 billion years ago, overflowing magma formed the crater of Pilanesberg National Park. This spectacular occurrence left behind the landscape and rock formations that we see today.

Ecological Richness

This national park is located in a transition zone between dry Kalahari vegetation and wet Lowveld vegetation. In addition to the Big 5, Wild Dog, Roan, Tsessebe, Sable antelope and over 360 species of birds, many of the indigenous animals of southern Africa are also found here.
