PILANESBERG NATIONAL PARK

DESCRIPTION

Pilanesberg Game Reserve is just 2 hours drive from Johannesburg in the Bojanala Region of the North West Province, adjacent to Sun City. Set in the crater of a long extinct volcano, the Park ranks among the largest of the parks in South Africa (it is in fact the fourth largest park) and covers an area of 55 000 hectare. Untouched, untamed and unforgettable, where Africa’s “Big Five” roam free together with a large variety of antelope and bird life. The park now has in excess of 7 000 animals including 24 of the larger species.

The beauty of Pilanesberg is reflected in a large central lake, the Mankwe Dam.
Over time, wind and water have carved a spectacular landscape with rocky outcrops, open grasslands, wooded valleys and thickets.

Visitors are offered many opportunities to experience the wonders of Pilanesberg. Numerous hides and scenic picnic sites enable the tourist to experience “out-of-car” experiences as well.

There is a self-guided trail in the Walking Area at Manyane Complex in the east, which offers environmental education whilst enjoying game viewing and bird watching on foot. Also at Manyane is a walk-in aviary with over 80 species of indigenous birds.

Lunch can be had at one of the parks restaurants. (Own account).
