Full Day Ultimate Pilanesberg National Park Safari
The Pilanesberg National Park is home to Africa’s Big Five—lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo—and is an around 2.5-hour drive from Johannesburg. On this full-day tour, increase your chance of wildlife sightings with two guided game drives in an open safari vehicle, tuck into a delicious lunch looking out over a popular waterhole, and perhaps spot giraffe, hippos, zebras, and antelope in their natural environment.
What to Expect
Pilanesberg game reserve is in the Bojanala Region of the North West Province of South Africa, adjacent to Sun City. Pilanesberg National Park is the home of virtually every mammal of Southern Africa. Also home to the Big Five. Come and enjoy a day of Wildlife game viewing in specially adapted open 4x4 safari vehicles. Your guide will drive you through this nature reserve in search of the Big 5 (lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard). Not only will you search for these animals but also others that make the Pilanesburg their home, including Giraffe, Zebra, Hippo and various Antelope. 
Our full Day safari included a morning Open Vehicle Safari Drive, lunch and an afternoon Open Vehicle Safari Drive, giving you opportunity on 2 Open Safari Drives to search for all the animals that inhabit the National Park. We depart the National park between 15:00 - 15:30, depending on the game viewing and return to your hotel in Johannesburg before sunset.

Not worth the money, try another one.

A very expensive outing. Guide did his best, but there was a huge fire and the trip should not have taken place. Average views, but great people on board

Glad we did it!

This was just a short 2 hour drive from our hotel in Joburg and they even provided transportation and lunch! We saw amazing animals in a natural habitat, which completely shaped our view of the country! Highly recommended.
