Days 1-3 Tuesday – Thursday – Safari

Pilanesberg Game Reserve is a game reserve in South Africa where animal roam freely in their natural habitat. Home to the Big 5 – Elephant, Leopard, Buffalo, Rhino and of course Lion, the Pilanesberg Game Reserve is known for its boundless opportunities to spot these magnificent creatures. Game drives are done in open 4×4 vehicles which allow you to get up close and personal with the animals in the wild. Vehicles are driven by seasoned trackers and Safari guides who are in constant radio contact with other vehicles to find the best gaming viewing the park has to offer.

 

A typical day on safari starts early as this is when daytime animals start to get active and nocturnal predators start settling down. We start with an early snack followed by a briefing by your Safari guide on the dos and don’ts in The Park. The Game Drive runs for about 3-4 hours, and during this time you will get to see an abundance of The Park’s game in their natural habitat.

Following the game drive, you will be treated to a South African style scrumptious breakfast and relax by the pool or on your patio within full view of the animals roaming freely on the reserve.

A late lunch is followed by an afternoon game drive, when most of animals are moving again to settle in for the night.
