About the Pilanesberg Game Reserve

Until very recently, the Pilanesberg National Park was possibly the most accessible Big 5 game reserve for the large population of wildlife enthusiasts from the Joburg and Pretoria region. Whilst the newer Dinokeng Game Reserve is now a lot closer than Pilanesberg, it still does not have the wildlife population or the diversity that Pilanesberg game reserve can offer.

Situated in the ecologically rich transition zone between the Kalahari and the Lowveld, this vast area offers fantastic big game viewing in a malaria free environment with a wide variety of accommodation to suit your needs.

The rugged wilderness of this Big 5 Game Reserve is characterised by wooded mountains and magnificent gorges contrasting with sweeping grassy plains and savannahs.

The game reserve is home to over 50 different mammals, including the Big Five. There are rare and unusual species too, such as brown hyena, pangolin, aardwolf and aardvark – all best seen at night.
