About Pilanesberg

Pilanesberg National Park, or Pilanesberg Game Reserve as it is often called, is located in the Bojanala Region, within the North West Province and relatively near Johannesburg. With an area of 550km², it is the fourth largest park in South Africa.

Pilanesberg Game Reserve is, in our opinion, a safe place for travelers. All South African National Parks and reserves are basically free of crime. As long as you take normal safety precautions when visiting urban places, there is nothing to worry about.

Pilanesberg National Park exists in a transition zone between the dryness of the Kalahari and the wet Lowveld vegetation. This rich transitional zone attracts an incredible variety of game animals, flora and fauna that are not often found living side by side.

Best time to visit

The Best Time To Visit Pilanesberg is from the middle of July to the middle of October (during late winter, spring or early summer). The reason for this is that animals take time to feed longer in the winter months, as there is less nutrition.

Wildlife

The Pilanesberg has healthy populations of all of the Big Five animals. Elephant and White rhino are particularly common. Black rhino also occurs but is rarely seen. As with any reserve that doesn't allow off-road driving and has thick vegetation, cat sightings are hit-and-miss.
