The Pilanesberg National Park is one of the most popular, natural and protected wildlife reserves in South Africa. It spans over an area of 55,000 hectares bounded by an extinct volcano crater.
The park stands as one of the main tourist attractions in the province of the North West due to its close proximity to Johannesburg and the fact that it is a malaria free environment. The Pilanesberg is well known for its exceptional richness of wildlife and includes a diverse landscape and varying ecosystems.
What wild animals can you expect to see in the Pilanesberg?
You’ll be able to find, among many other species, all five members of the so-called “big five”: elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos (black) and the Cape Buffalo.
