Description:

The reserve is located in a malaria-free region and that’s a large part of its attraction. Guests stay at Bakubung Bush Lodge which is one of the largest lodges in the Pilanesberg.

Enjoy daily game drives in a unique environment. Pilanesberg lies on the floor of an ancient volcanic crater, in a transitional zone between the dry, arid Kalahari Desert and lush Lowveld region. It’s a Big 5 game reserve and renowned for its high concentration of game and prolific birdlife.

Before the drive back to Johannesburg, you have the option of a game drive in a closed tour vehicle in Pilanesberg Game Reserve.
