Day 1: Gauteng – Pilanesberg
Our destination lies a 2-3 hour drive out of the major city of Johannesburg. The Pilanesberg National Park is a firm-favourite safari destination in South Africa and we will arrive around midday to enjoy a delicious lunch before having time to unwind and adjust to our new home for the next two nights.
Our first game drive leaves in the late afternoon as the heat of the day subsides, a time when animals become more active. With the hopes of catching a few exciting sightings, we will return to the lodge where our dinner awaits.


Day 3 & 4: Full days in the park
On both days we are up before dawn to head out into the reserve on a safari vehicle with our ranger. Hopefully catching some sightings of some the park’s nocturnal animals before they settle in for the day, we will explore the surroundings and take full advantage of this time of day when the animals are more-frequently active.
Breakfast awaits us upon our return where the next several hours to follow on each day will be spent in & around the lodge – relaxing, reading and discovering any other facilities offered by the lodge.

As the midday heat subsides in the late afternoon, it’s time to head out for our game drive. During this transition between day and night animals become more active and we’re likely to be enthralled by some of the larger denizens of this Big 5 park. A delectable dinner will be ready for us when we return fresh with sightings and stories to tell.


Day 4: Pilanesberg – Gauteng
Today we rise early again for our final game drive. After savouring a quick tea or coffee we will head out into the park with our ranger to hopefully catch some great sightings.
The diversity of the flora and fauna that the Pilanesberg has on show will make for some unforgettable memories. Once we return to the lodge, our final breakfast is had before we check out and depart the reserve.


Fully-serviced, luxury en-suite rooms add a touch of class to your experience.

We hand-pick the best lodges with the best reputation for our guests.

Summer – October to March is when the area sees a significant amount of rainfall. Temperatures are expected to be between 26 °C and 30 °C.

Winter – This is known to be the best time to visit the park. During the period around July to October, animals in the park are easier to spot and spend longer feeding. It is also mating season which is definitely worth seeing. Days are generally warm and clear.
