Welcome to Pilanesberg National Park

Are you short on time but want to see Africa's Big 5? Pilanesberg
National Park is home to prolific wildlife and a dazzling diversity
of birds about 2.5 hours away from Johannesburg and Pretoria. Easily
accessible from these major cities, it makes a great day trip or
multi-day stay. It's much smaller than massive Kruger National Park
but as a consequence, it has a higher concentration of game.
Pilanesberg lies in a transition zone, between the parched Kalahari
Desert and the rain-soaked lowveld, which means you can see a rich
variety of animals here. Besides most of the Big 5 (elephant, rhino,
leopard, lion, and buffalo), you have the chance to spot African wild
dogs, herds of zebra, the magnificent sable and roan antelope, giraffes,
and more than 350 species of birds.
