About Pilanesberg Safaris

With no malaria risk, all of the Big Five represented, including lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard, Pilanesberg private safaris offer a world-class safari experience across 55 000 hectares of unspoiled bushveld. Landscapes range from rocky outcrops to open grasslands, wooded valleys and thickets, with virtually every species of Southern African mammal represented as well as 300 bird species.
