About Pilanesberg

Pilanesberg National Park, South Africa’s fourth largest game park, is situated in a crater in the Bojanala Region of the North West Province. This crater is the product of a volcano that erupted many millions of years ago. This extinct volcano has evolved to become one of the most fascinating landscapes for you to visit. By the Genesis project the majority of South Africa’s wildlife is now found in the Pilanesberg game reserve.

The park covers an area of 55 000 hectares. More than 7000 animals live here in a free and unhindered environment. Pilanesberg is home to all of the BIG 5 (elephant, rhino, leopard, buffalo and lion) and we guarantee that you will be able to tick off most on your list of game sightings! Other animals that you may encounter are zebra, giraffe, cheetah, hyena, hippo, crocodile, jackal, wild cat, various antelope as well as over 300 bird species…the list is endless.

Pilanesberg offers over 200 km of roads for guided or self-drive game viewing. On our tour you enjoy an extensive game drive conducted by an experienced and knowledgeable tour guide who will answer all your questions about the fascinating wildlife and environment. Bring your camera to have a permanent record of all the wild animals and the spectacular landscape this National Park has to offer. 

The camp site is electrified, so there is an opportunity to charge your phone!

Itinerary

DAY 1: JOHANNESBURG/PRETORIA - PILANESBERG GAME RESERVE (approx 178 kilometers)

Early morning pickup

Guests are picked up early in Johannesburg or Pretoria and driven to Pilanesberg Game Reserve.

Note: Please confirm the exact collection time with your MoAfrika Tours representative; timing is affected by your address location and early-morning traffic in that area. The drive to Pilanesberg Game Reserve takes between 2-3 hours if you’re picked up at a central location in Johannesburg or Pretoria, or between 3-4 hours if you’re picked up from outlying suburbs.

Morning game drive

Arrive at Pilanesberg between 9h00-9h15. Your day in the game reserve starts with a 2½ to 3-hour game drive in our closed tour vehicle. The exact length of the game drive depends on whether you see an exciting animal sighting and spend a little bit longer at the sighting.

Lunch break

From 12h00 to 13h00, enjoy a light lunch and beverages (for your own cost) at Pilanesberg Centre which overlooks a large waterhole. After the lunch break, we make our way to Manyane Resort or Bakgatla Resort (depending on where you are staying) to book in and drop your bags off.

Afternoon game drive

Your guide for the afternoon safari tour meets you mid-afternoon at Manyane or Bakgatla, between 16h00 and 16h30. Climb on board an open safari vehicle for a 2½ to 3-hour game drive (again, depends on what you see).

Evening

After a wonderful game drive, your guide returns you to the resort. Freshen up and relax before it’s time for dinner which is prepared by your guide.

Overnight in a permanent safari tent at Manyane Resort or Bakgatla Resort.

Includes: Dinner

DAY 2: PILANESBERG GAME RESERVE - (SUN CITY) - JOHANNESBURG/PRETORIA

Early morning

Wake up early for hot beverages and rusks before it’s time to depart for a 2½ to 3-hour sunrise game drive in an open safari vehicle. Again, the exact length of the game drive depends on what you see and how long you stop at animal sightings. Return to the resort for breakfast.

Mid-morning to mid-afternoon

At about 11h00, we pack up and leave the resort and head off into the bushveld in the closed tour vehicle for your last game drive in Pilanesberg. We stop mid-day for lunch and refreshments at Pilanesberg Centre (for your own account) and then leave the game reserve for the return journey to Johannesburg.

Expect to arrive back in the city between 17h30 and 18h30. Exact timing depends on where you need to be dropped off and late-afternoon traffic.

SUN CITY OPTION

You have the option of driving to Sun City for a quick 2-hour visit instead of going on the extended mid-day game drive. We leave the resort at approx 11h00 and drive to Sun City. The drive takes about 30 to 40-minutes.

Arrive at Sun City and spend time exploring the entertainment and casino resort at your leisure and have lunch at one of the restaurants (your own cost).

We depart Sun City mid-afternoon at about 15h00 for the return journey to Johannesburg or Pretoria.

Expect to arrive back in the city between 17h30 and 18h30. Exact timing depends on where you need to be dropped off and late-afternoon traffic.

Includes: Breakfast.
