Pilanesberg National Park is a game reserve just northwest of Johannesburg and Pretoria—making it an ideal safari location if time is limited. Take advantage of its proximity with a hassle-free trip that includes return transport from both cities. Roam the plains by shared vehicle to see “Big Five” beasts such as lion; together with cheetah, giraffe, and zebra; and opt for lunch (own expense) in the park before returning.

We have been to Pilanesberg many times over the years and every time we go there you see less and less wildlife, especially any of the big five,not really worth the admittance fee now.

I loved the tour however the price is quite steep on the guided tour and therefore suggest people taking their own car.

We love visiting this Park as it is a mere 2,5 hours drive from Jozi. We enjoy the many different camps to choose from and is also a malaria free park. This park always has great sightings.
