It was really beautiful to see the animals in their natural environment. It is actually awesome to see them so close up that you could almost touch them. We saw Lions, Elephants, Hippos, Deer, Giraffes and Wild Pigs.
Pilanesberg offers the opportunity of finding the Big Five, in easy reach of Johannesburg.
Enter at one of the four gates and spend the day at leisure driving around Pilanesberg.
