It is situated 50 kilometres north of Rustenburg and only 2 hours drive from Johannesburg in the Bojanala Region of the North West Province. There is an advanced plan to extend the Park by means of the Pilanesberg / Madikwe corridor to form a Heritage Park with a total area of 255,000 hectares which links it to Madikwe Game Reserve.
Apart from the “Big 5”, there are 50 other species of large mammals, 354 species of birds and 132 species of trees. A wide variety of other rare mammal species also exist in the park, such as the nocturnal brown hyaena, the fleet-footed cheetah and the majestic sable antelope. The lodge site is particularly favoured by both black rhino and white rhino, and sightings of lion and elephant are frequent. The nearby cliffs are home to klipspringer and rock hyrax and provide strong updrafts for Verreaux’s Eagle and many more soaring marvels.
