The Pilanesberg National Park
The Pilanesberg National Park is situated in the North West Province and you get there by a 2.5 hour northeast drive from Jo’burg. It’s located right next to Sun City and the visit of both spots can be easily combined.
You should spend at least one full day inside the park and you’ve seen it all after three days.
What to expect there and why Pilanesberg?
A visit to South Africa definitely will be incomplete
without taking a trip to one of the National Parks. We highly recommend everybody to see at least one of them and Pilanesberg National Park is an excellent choice.
Pilanesberg is a rather small game reserve. Its’ area covers about 500 km2 which appears to be
tiny compared to the size of the Kruger National Park (20,000 km2).
Pilanesberg is hardly ever crowded (you may experience difficulties during high season only). Most visitors prefer the central zone of the Park, so those of you who take the outer tracks will be left alone with the game.
Another nice thing about Pilanesberg National Park are the prices. The admission ticket costs a few Rands; accommodation can be as much as R2,000 per night, but there is a variety of affordable and convenient accommodation (starting at R150 per person).
Have fun, Caroline and Thorsten
