The Big Five
See the Big Five just 2 hours from Johannesburg and Pretoria in one of the country’s most popular wildlife areas – Pilanesberg National Park.
This well-stocked park has a dramatic landscape that supports a wide variety of plants, animals and birds.
The Malaria-free Pilanesberg is in the Bojanala Region of the North West Province, adjacent to Sun City.
Set in the crater of a long extinct volcano, the park ranks among the largest of the parks in South Africa and covers an area of some 55,000 hectare.
Pilanesberg accommodates virtually every mammal of southern Africa and is also home to the Big Five.
Visitors can explore nearly 200 km on self-drives or guided game drives. There are a number of hides and scenic picnic sites available.
What to do
Activities include game drives, either self-driven or guided, game walks and birding. Pilanesberg also operates hot-air balloon safaris.
Sun City, with its entertainment centre, golf course, water world and casino, is next door.
A spectacular landscape
Over time, wind and water have carved a spectacular landscape with rocky outcrops, open grasslands, wooded valleys and thickets.
The beauty of Pilanesberg is reflected in a large central lake, the Mankwe Dam. Standing above the surrounding bushveld, the park unfolds colourful hues and panoramas - a delight for photographers and guests.
When to go
Summers can get hot, but visitors to Pilanesberg will enjoy the reserve all year round.
