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 09:00am 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 12:00pm you will enjoy a lunch at a restaurant next to a watering hole in the middle of 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 you will have another game drive for about 3 hours to try and spot the species you haven't yet seen. Your guide will take you to the dams and other spots best known for good sightings.

Conclude your tour back in Johannesburg.

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.

Excellent tour guide I wish I wasn't so terrible at remembering names who made the long drive to Pilanesburg from Sandton very easy. Supremely knowledgeable about the area leading up to the park and of the animals on the safari. Highly recommended. You're in Africa for crying out loud, you can't leave without doing this!

I wrote a lovely review but it deleted when I had to resign in oy! Well to summarize: Maggie our tour guide went above and beyond. She made the experience that much more special when she made every attempt to ensure we were safe, comfortable and saw all that we hoped. Maggie was relentless in trying to find those elusive few animals hiding that day but with her efforts we were able to see elephants up close and personal. The baby rhino, a hippo out of water, roaring pride of lions etc this was everything your dreams are made of. This experience was one for the bucket list, I cannot articulate how awe-inspiring and humbling the entire excursion was! a few bumps like forgetting to call but a few hours before to confirm and not being able to get into our location to pick us up did not phase the day no one's fault in particular, it was everything someone could hope for! This experience was excellent and we were blessed for such a great tour guide!
