Pilanesberg is wonderful. An amazing chance to see wildlife in their natural environment. If you want to see lions then the day trip isn’t for you-our guide told us 3% chance because they lie still in the heat so hard to see from the tracks. Saw lots of elephants, giraffe , zebra, wilder beast plus the park itself is beautiful. It is a long day from Jo’burg but worth it. We did open jeep which was shaded fro the sun and very comfy. Our guide was lovely and knowledgeable. The transport there for us was not very comfortable in an old taxi type minibus so don’t expect luxury transfers. It’s a 2-3 hr drive away.
This was the perfect outing for the traveler who only has one day to commit to a safari. The hotel pickup and drop off could not have been more convenient. We had a rainy morning so our guide was not optimistic that we would see many animals, especially lions. Luck was with us though because we saw 4 lions that day Ali g with an elephant, a rhino, two giraffes, 3 cheetahs and several zebras and wildebeests. Lunch was adequate and we had excellent drivers. Overall, I feel it was a good value. I also really appreciated that they provided us with rain ponchos because I was not preppy for rain.
Lo mejor de mi viaje a South Africa fue el safari, la Van nos recogió a tiempo el conductor muy amable, nos sentimos muy seguros Cuando llegamos nos presentaron el guía y listos para la aventura Recomiendo altamente el carro abierto tiene mejor vista y se puede sentir los sonidos de los animales Vi todos mi preferidos los elefantes son muy tiernos El guía nos enseñó mucho sobre cada animal regresamos en la tarde felices es una experiencia que vale su precio
I had some doubts before the tour, but as soon as I got into the open 4x4, it turned out to be amazing. I saw over 15 animals I think. The ones I remember are rhino, baboon, giraffe, tortoise, elephant, red hartebeest, steenbock, impala, black wildebeest, kudu and zebra. It wasn't just about seeing them but listening to the stories about these wild life. Everything was well-organised and I enjoyed a lot. Thanks.
Nice experience. We managed to see elephants, a buffalo and many giraffes and zebras. The tour within the park was very good, the car was in good conditions and the food pretty good as well. As suggestion for improvement is the transport from Joburg to the park: the minibus is a bit too small and uncomfortable (I am 1,87). But in general, I do not regret it.
