Overview

Spend a full day game viewing in Pilanesberg National Park. You have the option of choosing between an Open Game Viewing vehicle and a closed vehicle. Enjoy lunch at a watering hole in Pilanesberg and witness wildlife such as elephants, giraffes, kudus, warthog, zebra and many other species. You will be accompanied by an experienced guide who knows the park and the best spots to possibly find the different animals.

What You Can Expect

Start your day at about 6am when a qualified safari guide will pick you up. As this is a private safari, your group will be picked up and immediately head to Pilanesberg.

It is about a 2.5 hours' drive to Pilanesberg but your guide will make a coffee / breakfast stop half way, in the Hartbeespoort area.

Arrive at Pilanesberg National Park at about 9am and the morning game drive will start as soon as all guests had a toilet break and your group's guide finish his / her safety briefing on the open or closed vehicle - depending on which option you chose. You will have the unique opportunity to see the entire Big 5 on this game drive before lunch.

At about 12:00 p.m., you will enjoy a lunch at a restaurant next to a watering hole in Pilanesberg. Elephants, giraffes, zebras, warthog, blue wildebeest and many other species are often seen in this location and you might even see them while having your lunch.

After lunch, your guide will take you on another game drive before heading back.

Depart from Pilanesberg at about 3pm and arrive back in Johannesburg at about 6pm.

This tour was amazing. It was just me and the guide. He took the time to go thorugh some of the more remote parts of the park. I saw a herd of elephants who came up next to the truck and crossed in front of us as well as many other animals. The guide also was able to predict which way a white rhinoceros would go and got our truck into his path. He came right up to the truck and passed in front of us. It was amazing. I also saw wildebeests, baboons, impalas, giraffes, antelope, and many other animals up close. I highly recommend this tour.

This tour was outstanding from beginning to end! My guide, Paddy, knew the park inside out, and even knew many of the animal's names. A great tour! And even greater guide! Worth every penny. And will come back again to see more of this park. I hope Paddy is available!

Was a bit sceptical before ordering this, but i am so happy i did! The experience was amazing and the company top professional. This is really valuable trip, if you are considering it, do it! We had 6 hours to see the animals, and we saw most of the big 5 as well as lots of other fantastic things while we were there. And the guide was so passionate about the animals and everything.
