Pilanesberg National Park is ideally located just 2h30 minutes from Johannesburg. The 57 000 hectares (140 000 acres) of Pilanesberg National Park are home to some 10 000 animals and the park is now one of the privileged reserves hosting the Big Five and 364 species of bird.
The Pilanesberg National Park, which is situated north west of Johannesburg / Pretoria, is characterized by impressive volcanic mountain forms and rolling savannah grasslands 1300 million years old. These impressive features have created one of the most topographically diverse Reserves to be found in South Africa. A major reason for Pilanesberg’s diversity of animals is that it lies in the transition zone between the arid Kalahari in the west and the Bushveld of the Northwest Province. The seven different habitats at the Pilanesberg attract and cultivate prolific birdlife.
