Pilanesberg Game Reserve

Discover Pilanesberg Game Reserve in an ancient volcanic crater in the North West Province. Fall in love with diverse habitats and ecosystems in this fourth largest national park in South Africa. Explore the fascinating biodiversity of a park situated in an ecologically rich transition zone between the dry Kalahari and the moist Lowveld.


Drive for a mere 3 hours to experience amazing wildlife and luxury accommodation. Pilanesberg is hugely attractive to safari lovers thanks to its accessibility from Johannesburg. Choose to stay in comfy chalets and safari tents, self-catering suites and bed and breakfasts, or mid-range resorts and luxury lodges.


Enter this malaria free zone and find the Big Five while enjoying every other nuance of the Park. Discover all mammals endemic to Southern Africa if you are lucky, the big 5. Also look out for Brown hyena, Springbok, Roan, African Wild dog, Sable antelope, Tsessebe and more than 360 bird species. The park is small in comparison to its environmental wealth.
