What You'll Do
  • Visit Pilanesberg, the home to the famous Big 5 (Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Lion and Leopard)
  • Enjoy a game drive inside an extinct mega volcano
  • Explore a birder's paradise with more than 370 species
Ride through Pilanesberg Game Reserve searching for the park's most iconic animals, including The Big 5 (elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and the elusive leopard). This full-day safari and wildlife adventure is a perfect getaway from Johannesburg.
What to Expect
Just 2.5 hours from Johannesburg you will find the Pilanesberg Game Reserve, one of the best places in South Africa to see the famous Big 5 (the elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard).

Pilanesberg Game Reserve is also one the most important geological sites on earth. The reserve has very unique geological features due to an extinct mega volcano which erupted 1.2 million years ago. Pilanesberg is also a paradise for bird lovers, with more than 370 bird species to be seen and heard.

Start your day early by arriving at the Pilansberg Game Reserve gate by 8:00 (8:30 at the latest). From here you will begin your game drive through the park. Along the way the tour will stop at points of interest. Stop at the Pilanesberg Centre for lunch where you will have the opportunity to photograph the animals that come to drink at the waterhole and maybe also purchase some typical African souvenirs.

After a delicious lunch, get back on game drive mode looking to spot more of the local wildlife.

In late afternoon the tour proceeds to the gate and exits the reserve. Make one last stop to stretch your legs and get ready before the ride back to Johannesburg. In the city, your driver will transfer you to your home/destination of your choice.
