“Great reserve near to Johannesburg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

A perfect place to re charge the batteries. Lots of game on your doorstep. Nice and easy drives through the park with several suitable places to stop and view the treasures of Pilansberg. A must visit for those visiting South Africa with limited time to spare. An abundance of game to view - best times are early morning or late afternoon.

“So much to see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

The fact that there are lions, wild dogs, elephants and black rhino make this a wonderful reserve. I am a photographer and the fact that there are so many hides in the reserve allowing you to get out stretch your legs and get good photos of birds make this a firm favourite for us

“Great Safari”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Loved the couple of trips we made into Pilanesburg, the guide we had was very knowledgeable and we got to see quite a few different animals. The early morning or late afternoon trips seem to be the best for viewing.

“Self Drive Safari”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Brilliant, maps are easy to read and loads of wildlife seen. It was a wrench to leave the reserve. We took our own food as the cafe was closed.
Make sure you are full with fuel and give yourself plenty of time.
