Itinerary:

Day 1: Heading for the Wilderness

Your safari odyssey begins in Johannesburg when you hop into a trusty vehicle to head northwest toward the Pilanesberg National Park, where you should arrive by 09:00 where a quad bike safari awaits.

Between 09:30 and 11:30 you will explore the rugged terrain, wind through acacia groves, kick up dust, and feel the thrill of freedom as you track wildlife.

After this exhilarating ride, it’s time to refuel. Lunch is served at the lodge, then, slip into your swimsuit and lounge by the pool.

As the sun dips low, you embark on our sunset safari in an open safari vehicle. An expert guide will point out interesting sightings and you can click away with your cameras!

Back at the lodge, the aroma of a hearty dinner fills the air where you can many stories shared around the campfire before going to bed – perhaps where the distant roar of a lion lulls you into dreams of wild adventures.

Day 2 and 3: Explore the Park

As the first rays of sunlight kiss the savannah, you should already out and about. Binoculars and camera in hand, step into the open safari vehicle for a sunrise game drive.

Back at the lodge, a hearty breakfast awaits when you can swap stories about the elusive leopard, the comical warthog, and more. Consider a bush walk, some hiking or fun at the water park to pass the time until lunch.

By noon you can feast on a scrumptious lunch at a lodge restaurant before free time beckons. Perhaps you’ll lounge by the pool, book in hand, or maybe you’ll prefer to wander along the nature trails, where every rustle in the bushes holds a secret. The choice is yours.

As the sun begins its descent, you set off on another sunset safari to experience how the landscape transforms—the grasslands turn amber, and the sky blushes with hues of coral and lavender.

Back at the lodge, the aroma of dinner fills the air and while the Milky Way sprawls above, you enjoy some fine cuisine.

Then it is time to go to bed to enjoy the lodge luxuries for the last time.

Day 4: Sunrise Magic and Farewell

Rise and shine early when the African dawn beckons, grab your binoculars and join your guide in the safari vehicle for a sunrise safari in the crisp air as the bush awakens.

Back at the lodge, a hearty breakfast awaits. After bidding farewell to your cosy abode, you have some options: another thrilling quad bike safari, a leisurely bush walk, or simply soaking up the last moments in this wild paradise before departing for Johannesburg around noon.
