Full - Day Pilanesberg National Park Safari

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Visit: Balanta Imagine Safaris, 6 kikuyu drive , Sunninghill First floor, west wing, Johannesburg 2191 South Africa

    You will be picked up from  your Johannesburg, Pretoria Hotels or OR Tambo International Airport by a professional guide at 6 am

    for a 2 hour drive to Pilanesberg National Park. The relatively small size of the park, and its unusual ecological richness, dramatically increase your chance of encountering the Big 5 in their natural environment. 

    Your morning Safari drive will begin as soon as you enter the park. Your driver/guide will use their knowledge to navigate through the park, hitting different roads, trails and visiting various water holes to maximize your chance of seeing illusive animals such as leopards, cheetahs, lions and hyenas.

    Duration of the morning drive will be about 3 hours with stops for restrooms, refreshments and to stretch legs. There will be an hour lunch break ( lunch and soft drink included on the price), which will be followed by another 2 hours afternoon safari drive.

    Departure back to Johannesburg or Pretoria will be around 3 pm.
