Location

This safari adventure will take place at the Pilanesberg National Park in the Bojanala Region, South Africa. Pilanesberg National Park is one of the largest nature reserves in South Africa and covers an area of about 55,000 hectares. The park is situated in the Bojanala Region of the North West Province and is home to a large variety of wild animals including the Big Five; lion, elephant, rhino, leopard, and buffalo.

Pilanesberg National Park nestles in a crater that resulted from a volcanic eruption millions of years ago. As a result, it offers a rich landscape with amazing topographies that include a mixture of rocky hills, forested gorges, bush veld, rolling open grasslands, wooded areas, and waterholes and dams.

Located only two hours drive from Johannesburg or Pretoria, the Pilanesberg National Park is the home of thousands of types of wild animals and bird species that live and roam in an spectacular landscape.

The park is the fourth largest game park in South Africa and with a road network of over 200 kilometers, the park enables visitors to enjoy long game drives and fascinating wildlife viewing.
